They need shoes...again.
.
I shouldn’t be surprised... HOW-SOME-EVER, every time I upgrade their sizes I’m traumatized.

You just have to take it.

I’m just sayin’

Bring ye the male species to an amusement park and he shall smile and have fun.
.
I like wild rides. So does he. We’ll bond over that. Neither the heat or the lines is good for my foot. (Still have swelling issues from damage to the lymphatic vessels in my foot) But we are knocking off the oldest son’s rides first so I can put my best foot forward in making memories.
.
Want to connect with your teen? Find what they love and do as much of it with them as you can.
.
And for those other rides? Squeeze your patooty in those tiny seats and act like you like it.
.
Then in between the rides for teens and tweens, you prop your foot up and drink some ice water. This journey of motherhood will be over before you know it.

Tis’ true...

We are going to the Alamo!
.
I don’t care that you aren’t interested, or that it’s blazing hot, or that you’d rather be playing video games in the hotel. We are in a different city for one reason and because I’m a mom I’m going to squeeze out a reason #2.
.
I’m the mom. Yup! We will have fun but we will also take opportunities to grow and learn and experience new things.
.
I’ll let you choose between the audio tour and reading the signs. You think the OYO reading and touring will be shorter but alas! I’m the mom and will stop to discuss the information you should be gaining. We will tour the whole exhibit and watch the free movies. You will probably wish you had chosen the audio tour. That’s okay. I’m the mom and my way of touring is better anyway.
.
I’ll geek out on the history because I love school and I love teaching you. But because I’m the mom I’ll try my best to find something interesting to you that I could care less about. But we’ll find the sword display and muskets and bayonets so that you can geek out on artillery.
.
Win-win.
.
Since I’m the mom I must also take a picture to document this event and I don’t care that you all didn’t mind the pic with your dad and not as much with me. I’m tickled pink that you guys dig each other so much. I also know that you’ll be tickled pink later in life that I got in the pic this time.
.
And you’ll love me later for encouraging you to do things you weren’t interested in.
.
I don’t mind waiting awhile for you to rise up and call me blessed.
.
I’m a mom. Patience is a virtue. 👊🏽

Track meets and Dorito teeth.
