It's official! I'm on the Finish The Sentence Friday Blog Hop bandwagon! And guess what? I get to tell you about I time when I felt cool.
Let me tell you, I spent a lot of this week not feeling cool. I woke up with laryngitis on Tuesday. I spent my 30th birthday unable to talk. I was so lethargic that by yesterday there was literally no room to walk in our small two-bedroom house. And my kids were going crazy having a only-slightly-above-comatose mama.
And then this morning I felt slightly better. I still lounged quite a bit today, but at least I got the dishes cleaned and the floor vacuumed. And then (after a long nap in the reclining chair) I took the boys to the park. My oldest son Nate wore a black ninja suit, black Darth Vader cape, and homemade mask from one of his homeschool art classes. And as he ran around the playground (literally in circles) I realized, Hey! That's one cool kid!
Yes, he looked a little silly. Yes, other kids on the playground might have found him strange if their minds were closed enough. But do you know what? He was having fun. It was a bright, gorgeous, sunny day, and we had a great time playing outside.
And for the first time since I woke up sick this week, I felt like one cool mama.
Random Fact #8: My husband is 14 inches taller than I am.
