I love hanging out with my kids. I suppose that’s something that shouldn’t need to be said, but I say it because my kids make me feel like the luckiest mom in the world. We have lots of fun together cooking, playing games and even just watching movies. Plus, my kids are hilarious…sometimes at meals we spend more time laughing than eating. I don’t know if it’s the season or what, but I"m feeling extra blessed to have such great kids.
Last Friday, Soph and I went to Disney Princesses on Ice with her girl scout troop. I’m not a huge fan of the princess movies and all that prince-charming-will-make-me-happy-love-at-first-site stuff; BUT, I love the tiara’s and dresses and so does Soph. She wore her Snow White dress and tiara and I dressed normal, but I think I was the only mother in the place with a cinderella tiara on–Soph wanted me to wear it and she thought it was cool that I was the only mom wearing one 😀 Despite the over-priced wand and popcorn in a princess bucket, we had a great time. Soph said her favorite part was all of it. My favorite part was sharing the experience with her.
When we arrived home from our princess extravaganza, Alex and Aunt Dani were waiting for us with a surprise. Alex had hung our newly acquired disco ball in the ceiling above Soph’s bed. We got the disco ball from a neighbor down the hall and the kids were both excited about having their very own mirrored globe to bounce sparkly lights around the bedroom. When Soph saw the sparkliness her brother had installed right above her bed, the first words out of her mouth were, ‘Mom, can we have a disco party in here?’
And so, the next day, we did. We listened to disco music and ate some Snickety Snacks and other treats. Soph danced and Alex did some jumping between our beds. We even had a cake.
Sophia love our disco party and I’m sure has our next one already planned out. Alex loves whenever jumping on the bed is a part of the planned festivities. And, Mom, she just likes having fun with her kiddies!
