Aloha Friday: Parental Drinking Games
During NHL’s birthday party, my sister told a story of a trip she, her husband and her kids went on. During the trip, she and her husband tried to keep their children hydrated, but the kids were refusing to drink water. So they tried making it into a little game. This worked well until one of the kids started telling grown-up that their parents played “drinking games” with them.
I began to wonder how a parent drinking game would work. What would the rules be? Take a shot every time Dora, Map or any other Dora the Explorer character repeats themselves? Take a swig anytime you need to yell at your kids to stop fighting? Take another drink anytime you clean a room only to find it messy again 30 seconds later?
Of course, drinking while parenting is probably not the best idea. (Especially if you do shots during Dora the Explorer.) So perhaps you could give yourself “parental drinking game credits” which could be redeemed once the kids are in bed.
My Aloha Friday question is: What rules would you add to the Parental Drinking Game?
