Bored? Here’s something (incredibly ambitious) to do with the kids
I think every parent and child should do one crazy, ridiculous gigantic project that will be so outrageous that for years and decades later the memory and story will be a family topic. Great for first dates! Q: So what was your family like growing up? A: Well, let me tell you about the time we made a giant loft bed out of “Star Wars”….
And when the kid a month later decides to switch his devotion from “Star Wars” to “Harry Potter,” it’s just more fodder: “My dad nearly killed me when I decided to become a Harry Potter freak. He made me sleep in that bed until I was 17!”
