While B was still in preschool we started doing "rose and thorn" at the dinner table. Each person at the dinner table informs the rest of the best thing that happened that day (the rose) and the worst thing that happened that day (the thorn).
Some days the thorns are hard to hear but I would rather hear about them then have my children hold them in! (Side note - how cute are B's pink and green nails?)
Lucky, Hubby and I have been blessed to hear many "roses" at our family dinner table! And no matter what comes during Rose and Thorn, our kiddos seem to just make each other laugh. And laugh and laugh!
If a child's laughter is not a "rose" I don't know what is! What do you do to get your children to share the highs and lows of their day?
