Mother's Day needs children, right?

Today, to celebrate Mother’s Day, we went out for ice cream and to the park, so that Mom could watch the children (part of that “Mother” theme). Mom was going to make french toast from a loaf of hallah bread in the morning, but Poly jumped up on the counter, grabbed the loaf and ate the whole thing.

I took a couple of dump trucks and some traffic cones along for the park expedition, which Charles immediately put to use in the sand box, marking out his work area. These also made Charles and Alice instantly popular with the other kids in the sand box.

We tried teaching corwin to throw a frisbee. He made some progress, but he is still trying to do the work with his arm instead of his wrist. We couldn’t practice for more than 5 or 10 minutes before Corwin was exhausted from all the standing. I think the boys needs to be walking some beans this summer to toughen him up.

Bad Poly! Bet that french toast would have been good! Ken was working, so I had the pleasure of being Mom on Mother’s Day.….which I fulfilled that role well. They spent the afternoon and evening grounded from screens because of their incessant fighting.

The last time we had Corwin over, we played frisbee golf (or disc golf as the serious players call it). I thought Corwin did just fine.
