Say Yes to the Absurd
My six-year-old came home from kindergarten and said, “Let’s make Viking Helmet Sundaes.” Too often our Wifi-focused and -fried brains ignore requests or shutdown a desire without it even being heard. This time I paused and asked, “What do we need to make them?” Oscar replied, “Bananas, ice cream, cherries and that’s it!” I went to the store and bought his ingredients. It became a grand competition of Viking Helmet Sundaes. Next time, your little one or big guy offers up an idea, listen. Give him space to be a leader. You could make the most magnificent memory!
