I used to dread the days when the kids didn’t have school. Having all four of them home on the same day did not always translate into fun times. Now that my kids are in different schools, they have different days off. Today, I was home with my youngest who is in grade 7. After many failed attempts at planning things with her friends, she ended up with me.
To make it fun, we headed to the mall. While we were sitting in East Side Mario’s for lunch (that was a huge disappointment) my phone alerted me that I should write a blog post. Naturally she wanted to know what the noise was about, so I told her. ”Let me write it,” she said. I passed my phone across the table. This is what she came up with:
“Today I went to the mall with my mom because we had the day off of school. I was originally going to go with some friends but then I decided not to go with them because it is not very often that I get to hang out with mom alone while my siblings have school. Usually when we go to the mall both of my sisters then we don’t have alot of time to go in the stores that I like to shop in. So when I have a chance to spend time alone with mom I will take it. Today was great, we went out to lunch and to Starbucks and I gota few things. I hope I have more time with her in the future.”
Thanks Adrianna, I LOVE being your Mom!
