The kids were with me over the weekend which is always a little bittersweet. I mean, of course I look forward to seeing them, but I usually get a bit stressed before they come as I worry if they are going to have a good time and what kind of mood they will be in. And then I get sad as Sunday night approaches and I know it’ll soon be time for them to leave. Still, we had the Farm Show at least to look forward to so I had a planned activity with them.
The show was incredibly kid-oriented. First, there was a guy running around with a bag of goodies and freebies for everyone – that sure put a smile on all my kids’ faces. If you’re a bargain-hunter (which I’m not) you can really find a ton of great stuff. Zach picked up a funky Superman ruler so he was happy.
Once we got home, the kids were comparing all the free stuff they got which kept them busy for ages. Then it was time for pizza! We ordered two large pies from Mama’s Pizza and then set down to watch a movie that, surprisingly, we actually all enjoyed – Home Alone 2. So, all in all it was a fun weekend which went down very smoothly; I was incredibly grateful for that. Now I just have to see how I can amuse myself tonight so that I don’t wallow in my sadness that they’ve left.
