I almost slipped but I didn’t say it. Instead of asking my kids the generic “how was your day,” when I picked them up from their first day of camp, I asked who they sat next to on the bus, the names of their counselors, what they learned in swim lessons, and how it compared to last year. Truthfully, they were bursting with excitement, interrupting each other to give me all the details.
Later, my husband asked my daughter, “how was camp?” and she quickly answered “boring.” So, maybe there is something to my new line of questioning.
Here is the challenge for tomorrow . . .
