Day 206


our son turned nine recently and today we hosted a sleepover for three of his friends.  we spent time at funspot, getting ice cream, playing video games while eating pizza, and ended with a roaring campfire to make s’mores.  in my mind, a perfect day. i think my son had his own ideas of what a perfect sleepover would look like and quickly got disappointed when things did not align with his vision. he probably had three major meltdowns, full blown temper tantrums. in front of his friends. it was his party and he was going to cry because he wanted to.  i couldn’t understand what was going on!   i think being an only child fed into it all, as well as being such a dramatic and sensitive child.  we may not be having another sleepover any time soon.

Day 194


it was a nice saturday. sun shining, soft breeze. perfect day to visit the park.  so did hundreds of other people.  at least he found a tree to sit and think in for a bit.
