Tonight my friends, sisters Julie and Angela, came by with their kids and we all took a walk to the park.
Tonight Bubs and his friend R. took off down the bike path and got far enough away fast enough that they couldn’t hear us yelling so they just kept going and went to the park without us.
Tonight Julie chased them with her stroller, which I was very thankful she was there to do because running is not something I do.
Tonight Bubs and I had a conversation about how far ahead is too far ahead and came to an understanding.
Tonight I managed not to lose it, but I think Bubs understands that if it ever happens again he will be in store for a full-on Mommy Freak Out.
Tonight Stinky fell on the rocks and scraped his knees and was very brave.
Tonight Little One ate wood chips.
Tonight Stinky and Bubs climbed really really high and were very proud of themselves.
Tonight Angela’s daughter C. had an accident in her pants, and Julie’s daughter K. laid on the sidewalk at the park just for fun, apparently.
Tonight Bubs pushed Little One in the swing and almost launched her to Minnesota, and she laughed hysterically. (Okay, so maybe I did have a minor Mommy Freak-Out at that moment. But not a full-blown one).
Tonight, three women took nine kids to the park, and lived to blog about it.
And I think that, my friends, is an accomplishment.
