I find that laughter and practical jokes are the best way to keep your sanity! For instance if your children are misbehaving and you can no longer take it put a medium sized garbage bin on the kitchen table and wait for one of them to ask what it’s for. Respond by saying that “Due to the economy we are going to have to let one of you go!” The perplexed look on their face is priceless – then hug them both and tell them you love them, and of course, that no one is going anywhere. Their past behaviour is forgotten because there’s nothing that a big group hug won’t fix!
Another way to keep your sanity is to just escape! Pack the kids and a hairdryer into the car and drive to a street with medium to busy traffic. Sit in your parked car and point the hairdryer at passing cars. See if they slow down! The kids will find it hilarious!
For pure amusement when you’re next at the bank and the money comes out of the ATM scream “I won!”, “I won!”, “Third time this week!”
Finally if all else fails, pop some popcorn with the lid off and sit back and relax with a nice cold glass of diet water! ha, ha!
