I get to take my daughter pumpkin picking, go on hay rides and stand in line for pony rides.
I get to go to the Popcorn Shop and drip chocolate ice cream all over myself.
I get to go to the zoo and trick-or-treating.
I get to go to family fun fest and bake in the sun while having bugs nip at my toes.
I get to put corny decorations all over my house and to stub my toes on my kid's toys lying on the living room floor.
I get to make a fool of myself during ballet class trying to get my shy 3 year old more comfortable.
I get to take pictures and delete any I don't like of myself.
I get to relive my childhood.
Best of all I get to see the light in my children's eyes when they learn new things. I get to hear I love you mommy and receive the world's best hugs.
I don't envy my single friends and have no desire to go back to that boring time in my life.
So where to start.
My dad was inducted into his high school hall of fame the other week. I'm actually pretty proud. We went to the homecoming game where he was honored at 1/2 time. What a strange experience. You know I never once went to a high school anything game while I was in high school. I guess it wasn't cool to have school pride or I don't know what our problem was. High school was such a non-event for me that I honestly don't recall much of it. Anyhow the whole evening was kind of fun to watch. Reminded me of Friday-night skate (not that I went to many of those either....what was I doing all that time?) We actually saw some one we knew...although I'm confused why they would be there. It was just amazing to see the number of people that came out for this event. I didn't even know that many people lived out there. The kids were great and Leah stalked the tiger all night but wouldn't dare shake it's hand. I still don't get cheerleaders. Does any one watch them? Does anyone watch the game? The home team band sucked but the Tigers rocked the Bissons.
