 I remember those days so well!  One thing that I used to do when my kids were about ages 6-10 or so, is give them each a dollar.  They were not to buy something for themselves…but they had to pick out something for one of their siblings.  They had to think about it and try to figure out what they would like.  I also tried to teach them to get the most for their buck that they could.  I had almost forgot about this little trick until my daughter reminded me of it a while back.  But this was also back in the day when they could get several things for a dollar!  It was good for them to think about each other and what the other person might like.  We rotated the siblings around so they had a different person each time that we did this little  experiment!   It is amazing the ingenuity of mothers when put in stressful situation!  The kids thought that it was great fun and mom (me) was able to get through the shopping trip without a tremendous amount of trouble.  We had plenty of stressful, whiny, shopping trips too, but this is one idea that actually did work when I had to take all the kids with me!  :)

  1. You know your life has changed when…. you walk in the door expecting to see one of your kids and remember they are away at college, or married, or living their own lives somewhere else.
    Ugh – the empty nest has it’s downside sometimes too!

    1. Korine, You are so right! Being an empty nester can have it downside, but I am so lucky to have all of my grandchildren near me, so they fill my house with love and laughter! But it can get pretty quiet when everyone is gone!

  2. Oh, for cute!
    Also, a very true statement!
    When our kids were little, my sweet husband would watch the kids while I ran to the grocery store, or to the library.
    It was a nice little break :)
    Thanks for the sweet printable.

    Have a great week!
