  • Usually if you act like you're having a fun time than they'll have a fun time. I want get dressed and act like I'm really really excited and tell them they're going to get candy for dad for when he comes home. I'm not really sure but when I was a kid if my parents thought it was exciting than I always wanted to do it to just see what all the fuss was about.

  • That sucks, I'm sorry. I would probably do what the second poster said. I wish I could get my kids to be patient, they keep knocking on the neighbors door. I live on the west coast so we still have lots of time ugg
