I love kids and I love candy. Maybe that’s why they called me the Fun Mom today. I don’t think they have any idea that they made my day.
We were waiting for some other kids to join the carpool ride home and I shared my cotton candy treats while we waited. It was a looooonnnng wait today and I got to practice patience. I have been practicing not getting mad at people when they do things that I think are wrong. I am trying to not place my expectations on them knowing that most people are good and just see different shades of our shared reality.
Our friend finally arrived after 30 minutes and I didn’t lose it! I was actually proud of myself for staying calm and enjoying the kids that were in the car with me, waiting together. I actually love driving the carpool and being with all the cool kids, listening to their stories. Thank goodness they aren’t driving yet!
We decided to go get frozen yogurts because it was hot in the car and every one had time to hang out a little longer. Some of my favorite memories from being a kid included the times my friend’s Aunt would take us to 7-11 after school and we could pick whatever we wanted. I loved shaking up our routine and being spoiled and treated to something sweet and fun.
I think the kids had fun and loved being spoiled today. Hopefully it’ll be a memory they will cherish too one day.
