Making them laugh
I'm a bit of a goofy dad. I play pranks on my kiddos, tell silly jokes, just do what I can to make them laugh. No doubt about it, some of my messages to them are somber in nature because I'm covering serious topics. But overall I just want my kids to smile and feel happy when they hear my voice and see my image after I'm gone. So, I've started incorporating some of that goofiness into my HeartPrints & American Pride by wearing silly costumes and using props like large cutouts of emojis. It's just a shtick that I've added added to a couple of my messages to keep things light. Due to the type of cancer I have, I know my children will still be young enough to enjoy my silliness in the messages to them. Have you found interesting ways to create fun HeartPrints & American Pride for your kids? I'd love to hear some new ideas.
