      Be Smart, Make It Fun!

      by Tamar Yonah

      I am close to 50, and every day is still a struggle to do all the things I need to do, or should do.  Same with my kids,,,  'Do your homework, clean your room, wash out your dish after you take something to eat in the kitchen", (sigh) it's the same old same old, and of course, the beds still go unmade, I get notes from the teacher, and I end up having a sink full of dishes.  It reflects more on me than on them. I'm no Mary Poppins, more like Mary Pooped-out. So why can't we be smart and find the 'element of fun' to motivate our kids and ourselves to make the best choices each day? 

      I got this video in my email this morning and just LOVED it, and I thought I would share it with you as well.

      ...Now, if we could only make getting up for Shul on Shabbos this much fun.
      (Translation: Now, if we could only make getting up for Synagogue on Shabbat (the Sabbath) this much fun.)

      ...By the way, here's another - 'Be Smart, Make It Fun' video.
