Thanks for all the birthday wishes! I really did have a fantastic birthday, er... three and a half months ago.
Today's post is a picture tag from my new friend, AZLarson.
Here are the rules:
1. Open your first photo folder
2. Scroll to the 10th photo.
3. Post the photo & the story behind it.
4. Tag 5 or more people.
Here it is, me playing outside with my little brother, my little daughter and some neighbor kids.
I played night games with these kids practically everyday for two months while I was living with my parents. Sometimes these kids would come over and ask if I could come out and play, instead of my little brother. It was so much fun, I felt like a kid again, my dad even bought me a jump rope.
The parents of these kids were a little concerned that I, a grown-up with kids of her own, was spending time outside playing with their kids. And then Z came back from China and he would join us outside playing kick-the-can, hide-and-seek, Charlie-Charlie Butcher boy, Ghost in the Graveyard, and Capture the Flag. That made the parents really suspicious, now there were two grown adults outside playing with their kids. I was kind of offended that they were so worried, I mean it's ME, I'm awesome, and would never hurt any kid. I've had kids spit on me, back when I worked at a daycare, and all I did was say "Oh GROSS!"
Anyway, I guess I understand their concern, they knew my parents, but didn't really know me. And I guess it didn't help that during our water balloon fight, Z threw a couple balloons too hard and made some of the kids cry.
How would you react if your kids were spending time with a 20-something year old couple?
Yeah, now that I think of it, it is a little weird.
It shouldn't be though!
Stupid corrupt society we live in, can't even say, "here I come, ready or not!" or "olly olly oxen free" without getting looked at fishy.
Now I tag all the homeless mommies in SLC because they probably don't get tagged very often. But they will be getting some very nice Mother's Day gift bags thanks to all your help.
But I still don't have enough to get me into that dress, but don't worry there's still a whole month left to try.
