What kinds of things do you do to make your children feel special?
I admit I've been lax in this of late but here are things I've done in the past:
My older girls and I have kept a "Pass it on Journal" where we pass a journal back and forth in conversation or story style depending on our "mood".
Taking them out on an errand alone
Giving them a special treat telling them not to tell anyone because it's just for them - this doesn't work so well for really young children who like to "tell" :)
And I am drawing a blank.....tiredness is setting in......
I've put notes in their lunches... a candy... picked them up early, surprised them with a slurpee, etc... But i've noticed that the time they beam the most is when I overwhelm them with hugs and tickles and smooches... even my too cool for school 9 year old boy can't help but laugh...
I should do more though.
