Go With The Flow
Once you become a parent, you quickly learn that you have to be flexible and be able to “go with the flow”. Last night at 9:00 C came flying out of his room and said, “Mom, I forgot but tomorrow is Muffins With Mom. Can you come?”. Heavy sigh…… My response? “Of course, honey.”
But in my mind I was thinking, “Oh my gosh, how am I going to do this? October 15th is on Friday and my biggest deadline of the year!” But when I saw his face this morning when I came down the stairs it was all worth it. There’s no better feeling in the world than making your kid happy.
Ready to go!
(horrible picture, I know…..the lighting was awful and I was tired!)
We got there early so we would miss the long line.
C was ready for some grub. As soon as they said we could eat he was out of his seat and headed to the line (that’s my boy!!).
I was actually pretty impressed that they had fresh fruit and yogurt available, and that they placed it at the front of the line. At least then the kids had the option to grab something healthy before they reached the donuts, muffins, and strudel (oh my!).
I can’t say our school is the smartest when planning events, though, because today was also picture day. Not so smart when kids are eating chocolate donuts for breakfast.
Luckily he kept the chocolate on his face instead of on his clothes.
As soon as his friends starting arriving I was pretty much non-existent anymore.
He let me take a few more pics and then he was off to hang with his friends.
This is such a great age. Even though he’s growing up and much more independent now, he still likes to hang with his mom. Now I just pray that this lasts until I’m old and gray……..
On the workout front, I taught Group Power at the gym tonight. I went easy on my legs since I’m headed out of town this weekend for the Columbus Half Marathon, but my chest is ON FIRE! Two and a half hours later and it’s still burnin – now that’s a good workout.
So, how bout you? Are you a “go with the flow” kind of person, or do you like routine?
