Letting the kids help with the Family Mission Statement (ugh), that sounds interesting and yet I am uncertain if I could stand it (lol).
I give so much of me (and maybe they would say I am giving when they are not requiring). So, being able to come back to the mission statement and recognize that I have at least not given in vain makes me feel wonderful.
If I let them help with the mission I would feel like I am really giving the whole kitchen away.
Now that I have said that in my out loud voice, I realize that I should let them hear the mission statement and help tweak it.
Funny thing is, when they were really small we used to agree that my job was simply to keep them safe and let them explore. Wonder what they will think now.
