My children will be off of school next week. (And as you can see from the picture my son is super happy!!) And I think I am going to go crazy! I think they are so funny…this week is an example.
My kids have wanted a Nintendo DS so they could be like all the other kids in school. I thought it would be a good idea for the summer so they wouldn’t get bored. But, of course, after playing one game for an hour they were.
It kills me to think that they wanted this thing for so long…and then got tired of it so quickly.
I try to tell my kids to always have something you want…if you always get everything you want you will have nothing to strive for. It’s not always a good thing to get things just handed to you. There is always a great satisfaction in getting there yourself. Things may be tough…but when you get there it’s that much sweeter.
What are you striving for?
