You know when you accomplish something big…you celebrate, right? Well, our little one graduated preschool, and being very proud of his accomplishment, I told him he could do what ever he wanted to do when we got home…and this my friends is #WhereFunBegins!!
SunnyD as a brand is unapologetically fun, and I thought it would go perfect with my unapologetic fun I allowed Brody to do. See, he doesn’t like to wear anything but t-shirts and sweat pants. He seriously has a fit when he has to dress up. I told him he had to wear nice clothes to his graduation but that afterwards he could play outside in the rain when we got home. Because I do what I have to do to get him to comply!! A little bribing can’t hurt!!
It’s been raining every day for over 3 weeks here in north Texas, and the sun hasn’t peeped out much at all. Brody has been missing his playtime outdoors on his play set, especially the swing. So that’s what he chose to do after graduation…right in the muddy spot. He took his SunnyD drink outside – well a few of them, drank a few and poured out a few…and made a muddy mess even worse!!
As a concerned mom, I don’t always let him do “what ever he wants to” for the fact that I’m afraid he’ll make quite a mess or get hurt and/or break something….and believe me, he has done all three!! This time I stood back and let him go. Yes, I let him get his nice clothes dirty!!
I made some simple ice pops using 1/2 SunnyD Tangy Original and 1/2 lemon-lime soda and froze them a day or two before his graduation. This made a perfect treat for Brody while playing outside.
So I had a few SunnyD bottles left after Brody had his muddy mess with them and thought of this fun activity for him to do. Our front sidewalk was still wet from all the rain, but Brody managed to make this fun for him. He enjoyed tracing the letters with chalk and after that he made other words out of the letters…well, he tried anyway!! This to me is the best FUN of all….him having fun and learning too!! He doesn’t even know he’s learning.
SunnyD 24ct. pack is still available at Sam’s Club – it’s just in a new location. From now and until July it can be found in the aisles or as a featured end-cap display instead of its original refrigerated section. Rollback price of $5.38 will last until the first week in August.
We graduated – cap & gown and all!! He doesn’t look happy – we think maybe he had a bit of stage fright. He wouldn’t sing and or answer the question the teacher asked him. That question was, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Brody just stood there. Later that day he did tell me that he wanted to be a “hunter” and a “dog trainer” when he grows up.
So whether or not you let your kid(s) do anything they want after accomplishing something big like I did, be sure to check out more fun in the sun with SunnyD at sunnyd.com. I’d love to hear how you have fun with SunnyD!
