So sometimes when we spend time with our kids we forget the most obvious thing, asking them what to do. So today whatever time you choose to spend quality with them, no matter how much it is, ask them what they want to do, and don't have expectations, just do it.

This dare is short and simple, I'll leave it that way, just ask, it's up to them, not me.

Sorry if your kid doesn't talk, you'll have to take cues, lol.

Share your thoughts with us on the dare.

So far the day has been fun..... We colored together this morning, put about 60 toys in the tub during bath time, had lunch at McDonalds, and we are now watching a movie together!

We will be doing this one this week sometime as well. I know I'm a little behind lately but trying to catch up to everyone. I'm sure we will end up going to the park to swing and McDonalds to eat! He loves that and usually is what he wants to do if he gets a choice.

I've been trying to do this daily. Since Kaija is 2, allowing her to make her own choices is pretty important I feel. I may not just ask what she wants to do, but I'll give her 2 options of what we can do - sandbox or bike? nuggets or fishsticks? I think she likes the 'control' and I like how excited she gets when she gets that little look on her face while trying to decide which she wants more!

He wanted to play Wii and have me watch, was kinda not quality time, but that's what he wanted to do. I started to fall asleep and he kept asking if I was watching, so he did care I was there.
