step one

Remember how I said I didn’t have enough fun?

Yesterday after church the kids and I headed for Cody. It was time for the dreaded Walmart trip to requisition supplies for the month. I hate Walmart. I don’t like what Walmart does to my children. Caseyboy with his sensory issues gets so worked up there. Jasbo doesn’t want to ride in a cart (who can blame him after an hours drive in the car?) and Rachel wants to show me all the girly stuff I could enjoy without the boys. I survived it yesterday with only a few more additions to the gray hair syndrome!

I also got to check up on my oldest son. He hadn’t called in over a month. I know…he is an adult but….I am a mom and I want him to call me. He looked good. His apartment was clean and tidy and we had a nice visit.

I was in a bit of a hurry to get home for a Youth Leaders meeting at church…but I set that aside for fun! Yes I said FUN!  On the way home there is a back road that is mostly traveled by people who live on it. It’s rough and bumpy from poorly done patching on it’s surface but….it has these incredible rises and dips that make your stomach flop! So I tooled down it laughing with my children with the “classic rock station” playing some old Journey from the Infinite’ album. It was great. I believe I had one less child the last time I traveled that road and he was laughing the hardest yesterday shouting “wheeeeee”

So yes there is hope for me.

Nothing is more rewarding and centering than a Mom having fun with her kids. Bravo!

I agree! And with Journey playing in the background! That’s the BEST.

I remember “swooping the hills” with my mom and I loved it. We always begged her to drive that way home. 🙂 Thanks for the good memory.
