Shopping is really about 14yo dd talking, and talking and talking to me.
That dh and I are lenient parents. I thought we had some good rules going.
That a ball game would make 10 yo ds hold my hand for a minute (in the dark, of course, where no one can see).
That my ds would only have to be 12 to be my height.
That 7 yo dd can eat her whole Bob Evans breakfast and most of mine.
The beach, pool and splash park can all be visited in the same week and still not be boring, at least to my kids.
That supposedly responsible, adult men should not be allowed to go buy fireworks alone.
Have a Happy Independence Day!
