31 Days, 31 Smiles {Day 13}: Happy Food

We have an easy tradition at our house.  Every Friday night, we run errands together as a family.  While we're out, we pick up donuts and bananas for Saturday morning breakfast.  Sometimes it's a bag of powdered donuts.  Sometimes they're chocolate.  Sometimes each child gets to pick a special one out of the bakery case.  Either way, it's a treat and it's the simplest way to have fun and bring a smile to a face. 

It doesn't have to be donuts, of course.  Why not surprise your kids with a  mug of hot chocolate at lunch or a cookie in the middle of the afternoon or a popsicle in the bathtub? 

Fun food has the power to turn a dull day into a happy day.


  1. Agree! When a day is starting to go truly off the rails before the craziness of the dinner hour ~ the benefit of stopping for 'tea time' aka milk & cookies for the kids and something yummy for mommy to drink too!

  2. Brings back good memories! Sunday was always donut day for us growing up. My dad would head to Dunkin Donuts every Sunday before church and bring back all kinds of yumminess.

  3. Your idea of popsicles in the bathtub, is making me giddy. Love it!
