how to confuse your children
Once upon a time my boys were on their way out the front door. It was about 45 degrees outside and a little windy.
Me: What are you crazy? You can’t go outside dressed in shorts and a t-shirt! And sandals!!! Go back into your room and put on long sleeves, shoes, and a jacket. You might want gloves too.
Them: Yes ma’am.
That was two days ago.
Today, they were making their way out the front door again. The kitchen was cleaned up from breakfast and friends were waiting.
Me: What are you nuts? You can’t go outside dressed in long sleeves, long pants, a jacket and snow hat! Go back in your room and put on a short sleeved shirt.
Today we have the front door open again. It’s a beautiful 75 degrees. The scent of rain is present in the air but that’s not going to stop us from grilling out with the neighbors tonight. There will be burgers, chips, fireworks, and a projector for the kids to play Dance Revolution 2 on some video game thing on the garage door.
Tomorrow there will be pictures. Possibly a video. And probably a really good blog post.
The whole event is likely to draw a lot of attention.
Ryan is making quite a few extra burgers. You should come on over!
