I'm recording this moment in the event that in just a few short years I need a reminder that at some point in their lives....they chose us.
Mondays are fundays around our house. Bruce is off and we typically are recovering from a busy Sunday. Yesterday was no exception and so last night as we were deciding how we would spend Monday, we gave the kids several choices:
1. Go to the movies...get popcorn, drinks...the whole nine yards.
2. Pack up a picnic lunch and go to the local park and play.
3. Enjoy a PJ day with mom and dad, complete with games, netflix, wrestling (Tucker's request) and music.
Ding Ding Ding!!! They chose #3. As much as I would have enjoyed a movie, or even the 90+ degree heat....I was thrilled they chose us. We enjoyed a day of Apples to Apples, Mario Kart, practicing TKD, listening to Toby Mac, watching Saved by the Bell and a yummy dinner of homemade spaghetti and salad. Truly a day we all needed. Oh, and yes, Tucker (7yo) and Bruce (42) had their wrestling match. The loser can hardly walk....I'll let you guess who that is.
So...in the future..when I'm wondering if they ever really enjoyed being at home, with us, I'm coming back here...to remind myself...one Monday...they chose us!
