This Friday my eldest son Michael was off of school, on days he’s off, I normally let my youngest who goes to preschool half of the day stay out as well. However, I don’t really get any time alone with Mike anymore so I thought it would be fun to have some “Mommy & Me” time. Mothering boys is a challenge, but it’s also wonderful, especially when you embrace every fun thing about their little boyish ways. We only had three hours but I was determined to pack every second with fun.
We went bowling and played in the arcade, for the first hour and a half. I then planned on taking him for some frozen yogurt (his favorite) so that he could use a coupon he received for getting good grades, unfortunately everything in Miami seems to open pretty late in the day and the yogurt place was closed. We ended up browsing for books at Barnes and Noble, where I snapped this photo.
As he walked down the street with me he wasn’t even that disappointed the yogurt place was closed. He grabbed my hand and said, “it’s okay Mom, I’m having fun.”
I thought my heart would burst, right there on Sunset Avenue.
Love & Mothering,
