Absolutely Incredible Kids Day
When : Always March 15th
Sure, your kid is pretty good. But, my kid is absolutely incredible! As a matter of fact, all of my kids are absolutely incredible. As a parent, I am going to take full advantage of being the author of this page to exercise my bragging rights, and to let you know that my kids are absolutely incredible. (Wow! That felt pretty good.)
If the paragraph above doesn't give you a good impression of the meaning and purpose of this day, then you probably don't have kids...yet. When those offspring do arrive, you will most certainly use this special day to profess how incredible your kids are. Amazingly, tomorrow they go back to being brats.
Did you Know? "Kids" are baby goats. Does that mean this day is really about incredible goats!? .......Nah!
Celebrate today by letting your kids know how good they are, and how much you love them.
Origin of "Absolutely Incredible Kids Day":
Campfire USA created this day as a day to show kids they are loved and cared for. Among other things, they suggest you write a letter to your kid today.
