I’m sitting at the kitchen table listening to my sweet child (sarcasm) go over her sight words and pretending not to know them. *Rolls eyes* My mind reflects on a time when we had a wonderful night together. We have them often but I forget them when I’m trying to keep my cool at homework time. LOL The only thing that comes to my mind is “Jesus take the wheel…maybe the whole car” depending on how much longer I have to appease her while she plays mind games with me. It can be rather frustrating. I know some of you parents agree. It’s nothing like knowing your child comprehended or knew something not 24 hours ago but apparently it seeped out during the day! Heaven help me! LOL
Consequently, this evening has prompted me to share a mommy/daughter night idea. That night the mood was light and airy!
My daughter is one of those always moving, always talking, always touching children. At times it makes me want to consider buying one of those leashes. HAHAHAHAHA! She’s 5 imagine the looks and whispers that will come out of that idea. I should do it just to see how it goes. Enough with the leash talk! I’m getting one!
So one night when it was just me and her (my son leaves every other weekend) I decided we would have our own personal Paint Nite and YouTube would be our teacher! I prepared fancy finger food for us and turned on a little fun kid music. I covered my beige carpet with a sheet to avoid stress that didn’t need to be. We drank out of fancy glasses! Yep we got Kool-aid wasted. We talked about silly stuff as we painted, we smiled at each, busted out laughing a couple of times and just enjoyed each others company. I even caught myself gazing at her and smiling. In one moment she caught me and said “what” with all her teeth showing. I just replied “O nothing I just love you”.
I often wonder what my kids will remember about me. Prayerfully this will be a night she remembers. Unless my fate is Alzheimer’s (God forbid) I know I will! 🙂
It is my sincere hope that everyone had a wonderful day!
