How Many Days of What?

I think there should be 180 great days a year—parents should feel enough pressure that they have as many shiny show-off days as there would be school days. And that leaves 185-186 days per year for "doing nothing."

I don't think anyone should count, but if they feel like they're in a frenzy of doing too much, then that's too much. And if the mom is feeling like maybe she should do more, then she should do more.

Enough "great" that the mom feels like she provided greatness. And enough happy that the kid felt like it was good, too.

The "180" number came from the number of school days
required by the State of New Mexico. YMMV.

  1. In the UK there was a well known darts commentator who used to say "One Hundred annnnnnd Eighty" in a classic voice. I am going to see if I can find it on youtube.

    As an aside I am amazing how much we do even on the days that we don't seem to do much iyswim
