I finally figured out a way around asking my Mama if I could have my boys come over. Being the courteous person that I am, I used to ask each time I wanted to see them and her favorite word, (even when I was little), is “NO!”
Once I asked her why she says No so much and she said, “It’s the first thing that comes to my mind.” Then she laughed.
But something clicked in my mind and I tried it and it worked. Instead of asking her, I just do what I want to do. So when the boys called me to tell me they were on their way back in town, I told them to tell their Dad to drop them off. She couldn’t say No once they were here! Voila! And instead of asking if they could spend their Spring Break week with us, I just told them that they were– again– no denial.
~scratching head~ I wonder how long this will last.
Anyway..So I’m soo excited! I get to spend every night with my boys for a week straight. On Sunday we went to the store to buy a bathing suit for me since I don’t have one and it’s now BEACH WEATHER! As I tried on suits that I let the boys choose they were running up and down the aisles screaming, “It’s a LARGE, it’s a LARGE! Here you go Mama! This one will fit!”
Grrrrrr….. I have gained some weight. No more fast food for me.
We then went to the beach for a couple of hours and did the whole “jump the wave” and “build sandcastles” thing. Then this morning I woke up at 5am to plan a scavenger hunt for them. The scavenger hunt had clues that led them to more clues and when they found the final clue they had to unscramble the words to find out what we were doing for our activity for today.

W I G M S I N M
Then we hung out until noon and went to lunch and then to the community pool to swim. On our way back we grabbed a chocolate cake to celebrate my parents anniversary and then we changed out of our wet suits and got ready for dinner. My 7 year old kept asking me to show him how to make an avater so I signed my son up for his very own E-MAIL address and showed him how to check it and send emails and then we designed his avatar.
When their Daddy came by to drop off clothes for them he asked them if they were having fun and they shouted, “YES!”
“Daddy! Tomorrow a new Burger King is opening up and we’re going!” my 7 year old announced proudly.
I almost choked. Sure..their Dad just took them to a cabin in the mountains for a real vacation and here I am..taking them to Burger King and they are equally as excited. ~smile~ I love my kids!
Each morning we wake up and my sons kiss me and say, “Goodmorning Mama..”
I really feel like I’m in heaven…
I’m not sure if life could get any better than this…
