Just when things were seeming to be difficult and frustrating, I got huge hugs, great photo ops and impromptu dance moves thrown my way. This is what makes any kind of parenting worth it… it’s amazing what a hug or smile does to erase a rough week! Totally makes everything worth it. We had a movie marathon kind of weekend and also we finally mowed our lawn, which is good because the other option was to start telling people we lived on a preserved prairie land to explain the rapid foliage growth.
Vince and I had some painting projects, as apparent by the random paint on both of us. Apparently crafting with a 10 year old in close proximity is just as messy as it sounds. He also used a hammer and a glue gun. I’m happy to announce there were no craftacular accidents in the home. We are currently watching “The Last Samari”… which has the 10 year old geared up with a yard stick and a life size bear and mock decapitation. Like I said, it is a good weekend.
