I grew up where every Holiday was a big deal. The whole house was decorated, even the bathroom, for every Holiday. Now that I’m a parent, for whatever reason, I don’t do this. Am I being a lazy parent because I’m not decorating every room in my house for Halloween?
A couple weeks ago the kids and I painted pumpkins. I figured that was good enough, but then my kids started asking for more. So my husband took them out shopping on Friday and brought home a bag of decorations.
Now I may be a lazy parent when it comes to decorating, but I’m also a smart parent when it comes to bribery! You bet I used those Halloween decorations as a reward for them cleaning the house. Life with toddlers, you know that house stayed clean for 15 minutes, but hey at least they picked up for once.
Then I saw them have a blast putting up the spiderwebs, skeletons, spiders, and bats:
Do you go overboard for each Holiday, or limit it like I do?
