It’s The Weekend! A Time To Rest or No?

It’s Friday night! I’m off of work and finally get inside our apartment just before 8PM. I ordered pizza already.

I lay down my things and sit on the edge of my bed. Breathe…the work week is over. Finally time to relax ūüôā

My two boys come rushing in. Mama! Mama! Lots of hugs (smells of sweat, grass, dirt, etc.) and kisses as we catch up on how their day was. Video games, football, playing cards with daddy. It was a good day.

Hyperactive Puppies Saving The World

A week or so ago I became fed up with their foolishness. I packed it all up. Everything that was “fighting” related was packed up and put away in the storage closet.

Let’s see how much trouble you can get into now with only your blocks and stuffed animals…hahahaha!!!

What a waste of my time… They quickly gathered replacements!

Basically nothing has changed. The battle against all of earth’s greatest enemies continues nightly in my living room, dining room, or where ever they hop, skip and jump.

Tonight I’ll leave you all with this visual reference of what I feel closely matches to my child’s energy level.¬†Good night!

Aaron: Yeah they do.

Isaiah: No. Uncle Zach told me so they don’t turn well.
