Family Traditions: Let's Make Dad Mad
The Blogging Lounge asked for family traditions from my childhood, but I'd rather tell you about the one from my second family. It was a game my kids used to play before every road trip called, "Let's Make Dad Mad." It would start with kids squabbling in the back seat. Then, my husband would stop the car, usually before we reached the end of the driveway. We would sit in the car for thirty minutes with Mitchell threatening for us not to take the trip. I would plead with the kids to stop fighting, but that didn't happen. Finally, after a long delay, the kids would hush, and we'd start out on our vacation. It happened so often, we considered it a family tradition.
