The lesson of the day is: Seasoned parents always know about the cool stuff.
This morning Jack and I met up with Susan, Carter, Sophia, Emily, Brooks, Lindsey and Cadence at Pump It Up. I was skeptical about how Jack would respond to a warehouse full of inflatable toys. But Susan, being the seasoned parent of a busy boy suggested this little activity. As soon as we walked into the room Jack was practically vibrating with excitement (and so was I, running jumping, bouncing, sliding… when is this NOT fun?!) We did everything at least twice, but probably more than that. He laughed and ran and slid and jumped with no coaxing from me (except on the things that were too high to climb unassisted).
Tonight after dinner we had some home-grown sugar snap peas (the ones from seed) for ‘dessert’.
Apparently we also really really like sugar snap peas. I’m wondering at what age Jack will become wise to my trickery and inform me that peas, blueberries and yogurt are NOT desserts. For now, I will enjoy my nutritional trickery, mwah ha ha ha!
