The Harrowing/Heartwarming Parent Moment of the Week

Sweet Boy#3–Chooses to clean and vacuum under our couch for a bit of Momma son bonding time. Yep, it was his idea not mine.

I will not reveal his identity, but one of my marvelous and mostly honest boys was overcome by temptation this week and stole 12 candies from his teacher. He lost 12 recesses at school and 2.5 weeks of treats at home, and hopefully gained a healthy appreciation for honest behavior. Who knows? But man parenting is never without its craziness is it?

Sweet Boy#3 and I make pickle juice popsicles as per his request.

The Hunky Hubby hears a questionable song come onto the classic rock station and seeks to change it. Sweet Boy#2 shouts out it horror. That was his very favorite song. What song was it? Rebel Yell by Billy Idol.

Sweet Boy#1–Comes within a few inches of being hit by an inattentive Grandma lady at Costco in an SUV giving The Hunky Hubby nightmares wherein Grandma ladies are running the boys over on their sleds here at camp.

But the winner this week…

Sweet Boy#1 and I had his Momma Day this week. We went to a Wenatchee Wild semi-pro hockey game. I am not overly fond of sporting events that do not occur on TV, but we had such a marvelous time. Sweet Boy#1 took almost the whole 2.5 hours to nibble up his giant pretzel and sno-cone all wrapped up in a blanky and his new hat with the monster face on the front. He loved Walt the Wolf the mascot for the Wild, and was thrilled with the camera blimp. He even broke loose with a few cheers. The wild won and I have a new appreciation for a sport in which lost teeth is considered a badge of honor.
