Poetry could be just the thing early in the day. Haiku or rap or iambic pentameter -- see what you and your kiddo can create using your daily life as the starting point. Keep it light and on the free verse side as merrily you roll along!
Just keep smiling and nodding -- all you have to do is listen to make it through today. Your energy is best spent helping out or supporting others, but soon it will be their turn to help you.
The great outdoors are calling -- it's International Picnic Day! Make sure you do your civic duty when you dine outside by picking up your trash. Going above and beyond and picking up other bits of litter is inspiring to others, too.
Forget shopping sprees. These days, your best bet for doubling your wardrobe is to replace missing buttons, mend torn hems and resole shoes you've stopped wearing; then drop off your ever-increasing bag of dry-cleaning.
