I’m not good at family traditions. It’s mostly because I’m scatterbrained and don’t take the time to think through rituals and establish traditions. Every holiday is a little different from the last. We don’t have routines that are set in stone, or a way we always do things.
I like to think it’s because I’m flexible, but it’s probably because I’m scatterbrained and can’t even remember what I did yesterday, much less last year.
Life in our house is a little like a pot-luck supper. You never know what you’re gonna get; however, there is one tradition we’ve managed to do well in our little family, and that is pizza night.
Actually, it’s Pizza Burp Night.
Not even pizza night could be normal for us!
This tradition began years ago, when my kids were so little they barely ate a whole slice of pizza.
We were always reminding them to mind their manners, keep their mouths closed while chewing, and not to talk with a mouthful. But on Pizza Burp Night, manners were set aside for a can of soda and a belly full of carbonation.
Only one person would be named king or queen of Pizza Burp Night and it was a fight to the loudest, longest, most obnoxious burp possible.
If you doubt your little one’s burping prowess, just give them a can of soda and encourage them to do their best. They may blow you away. Literally.
Through the years our one tradition has changed with our commitments and schedules. It’s moved from Sunday night to Friday Night, and now to Saturday night.
Sometimes we order pizza to be delivered, sometimes we make our own pizzas, and other times we buy made-for-me pizza, like Tony’s Pizza. Our kids have gone from eating one slice to fighting over the last slice.
One thing I’ve learned about tradition is that it’s not about doing it perfectly. Things change and life takes over sometimes, but if it’s important to you and your family, work through the changes.
Tradition is less about how things look, or taste, and more about enjoying the people you’re with. It’s a time to come together, throw caution to the wind, and for a few moments, just have fun. It’s about loving the people closest to you.
That’s why, in our house, pizza isn’t just something we eat on Friday nights. It’s a tradition. It’s the constant my kids count on, and it’s all about family.
Pizza Burp Night – You should try it. You just might like it!
Your kids will get get a kick out of it, and you may be surprised who is crowned burp queen/king.
