If you do just one thing new this week….

Img430 Here’s one thing to add to your "to-do" list for the week. Go to lunch with your kids. At the school. And eat the tater tots. Or haystacks. Or beef nuggets.

Tell them in the morning at breakfast, "I’m coming to your school to have lunch with you today." And if you have more than one kid at school, just hang around the cafeteria as long as it takes to spend time with each one of them.

And if you’re feeling extra crazy, stuff a $5 bill in your child’s hand and let them buy ice cream for their table. Five bucks and they can be the star of the 3rd grade.

I try to do this about once a month. I guarantee you will be a hero, and most likely the only dad in the place.
