Sometimes I forget how easy it can be to earn this title. Today, I told the kids they could play outside until school time and we would have a picnic lunch in our front yard. They all shouted for joy and declared that, "Mommy is the best mommy in the whole world!". I also receive this title the few times I let them have sweets or watch a movie. A couple of weeks ago I took them to Chuck E. Cheese with some coupons for tokens. We didn't eat there (I can't stand the pizza and it is way too expensive), but they did get to play lots of games with the $5 on 40 tokens I spent. It was a cheap and fun time that not only earned me "the title" for the day, but also brought about chants and songs for me.
I guess when they don't get to do everything they want, they really appreciate the times I do treat them (that's a whole other post).
