I can hear a collective "AMEN" from my choir of friends out there who are reading this right now. I love The Boy with all my heart. I truly do. But, that boy wears me out. I firmly believe that there is no other parent out there who loves bedtime more than we do. I had him pose for me in the van before heading to school the other morning.
What kind of face is this, I ask you? All I asked was that he be still for ONE SECOND. You would have thought I asked for the moon.
Another thing I want to share. We went to the Mardi Gras parade in town last weekend. As it was the first festival of the Festival Season here, vendors were out galore, along with fun costly things. There was this inflatable slide that claimed to be the BIGGEST inflatable slide in the world. I can believe it. That sucker looked to be 3-4 stories tall. Nothing doing but Makenna and Vitt wanted to do that thing. I'm thinking they were on the insane side. Never in a gazillion years would this Mama do it. Having a fear of heights kind of seals that deal for me. One foot off the ground and I get vertigo. Fred is game for all that looks dangerous and life-threatening. What a fun Dad he is! He went along to participate and I awaited them at the bottom with phone camera in hand.
Makenna went first. No fear. Laughing all the way. Just ran and jumped.
This is The Boy. The Man is at the top to the right watching him. He had no fear. Whatsoever. I think I need nerve pills. He was ready to slide again once his feet hit the pavement.
We are heading to Edge I today. My mother needs to see her babies and I need to see my Grandma who is in the hospital. We got a full weekend planned and I expect us to be happy to get back Sunday evening so we can rest. I already miss my bed. But I am looking forward to some cool weather!
Have a good weekend, Internets!
ACK. Spell check isn't working today. So all spelling errors are my fault and maybe I'll come back and fix them later!
