So I am not great at packing
and not stressing.
I try not to get all ADD while I am sorting
and puzzling all the bags
and boogies boards
into every inch of the van.
There is a magic to getting everything in the right place.
A deep satisfaction.
But while trying to breath this satisfaction into the van, the boys are doing their thing.
Some of these "things" I approve of, while others drive me to the infamous,
"Go. Out. Side. Now." saying.
Well, they are up to it again. A well planned and thought out game of
The Stuffed Animals
For some reason they all had to wear hats.
Maybe they hid their weapons in there.
As I was reminding them, for the 50th time today, not to play in a certain room,
Rohan pipes up and says, so matter-of-factly, as Rohan does so well,
"STOP STRESSING OUT!!"
"It's kind of annoying!!"
"It is not KIND OF ANNOYING, It is ANNOYING!!"
Well, yes, Rohan it is.
So there you have it.
At least my kids are still super creative while I am off being
My super hero name for the day.
I should get an award too.
It is a talent.
Tomorrow, though, I will be the Mom who the minute we get to the beach,
puts my suit on with them and runs straight to the water
screaming with glee.
I hope they rename me tomorrow.
But for today:
I am stressing out.
Like it or Lump it.
