I wish I could convince my children of the joys of slacking around on a holiday, but they are not easily catching on. And I have done a SERIOUS amount of modeling the appropriate slacking behavior in their lifetimes. Take now, for instance: it is 4 in the afternoon and I am still in my pajamas and have watched two movies. Youâ€™d think they would get it by now, but they still whine and whimper and hang on my clothing and beg me for food and water.
Yesterday was a success in all ways: we ate, we drank, and we played. And even though Iâ€™m a strict introvert, I get high off a good party â€“ as long as everyone goes home, eventually, and lets me stay in my pajamas the entire day following.
