Our daughter Zoe had a calendar she used everyday to learn days of the week, counting the numbers, etc. The background to the word Saturday on the calendar was pink. She started to associate the first day of the weekend (meaning mommy and daddy don’t have to work) as a Pink Day. Every day in the morning, she would ask us if it was a Pink Day. Most days – the answer was no, and the saddest face would look back at us.
So, when we hatched our scheme to quit our jobs and spend a year off with our kids, we said every day would be a Pink Day. Project Pink Day was born.
We were able to tell Zoe and Alex that they will get a WHOLE YEAR of pink days! Not sure if they understand how long that is – but they sure are excited to learn about it.
