Friday Fun

My husband and my oldest son are at a Cub Scout lock-in tonight. My husband sent this picture to my phone. (My son is on the right.)

I texted my husband back and asked him what the boys were doing.
He said, "I told them to act like they were having fun."

I know they are having fun. I even know my husband is having fun. I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures and hearing lock-in stories. I just texted my hubby again to ask him to make sure to get at least one picture of him with my son. If that picture gets taken, I'll share it in another post.

What did I do tonight?? Oh, this Momma had fun. I had a babysitter come over and then I went to a friend's house. A group of us girls sat around and talked for hours. We also painted our toenails. I'd share a picture but I don't really like my feet. It was a wonderful night -just the break I needed. I had a very, very busy week.

What about the kids at home? They had fun, too. They had ice cream, enjoyed tickle fights, and listened to stories. My youngest even learned how to crawl out her crib while I was gone.
I'm not so sure that was fun for my babysitter.


That's it. That's all I've got... just a little post to let you know I'm having fun.

So glad to hear you're having fun!

You're one of my mother-of-four role models I'm looking to now!

Both of my boys were in scouts. I can remember those overnight camping trips and lock-ins. I loved them because I would have a night to myself!

Glad to hear that you had fun. :-)

P.S. I don't like my feet, either. I have weird toes!

Well it sure does sound like everyone had fun. You got a babysitter and went out with friends? That is awesome. I sure wish i had a babysitter to call for those type of things...if my mom cannot watch them i am up a creek...because I don't know anyone that babysits. Sad but true. Good for your whole family just having some fun! I love nights like that.

Loved your post. I checked your blog every day and miss you when you don't blog. So, I love that you "checked in with your blog readers to let you know you were having fun"! You are awesome.

Derek and Jackson were at the scout lock-in too. It sounded like torture to me. They seemed to like it!

Oh, I'm glad you had fun! Mommy time is wonderful, isn't it?

Good luck with that crib-climbing baby. My youngest pulled that stunt back in October and we had 2 months of nonsense before bedtime became 'normal' again. Ugh.
