Thank You for Getting Out Mom

imagesThank You for Getting Out Mom, I tip my hat to you. You dragged three kids out of the house for countless adventures, and you did it before double strollers even existed. You taught me as a mother that parks and picnics and trips to the museum are worth every bit of effort. When I’m hauling sand toys and balancing two kids on my hip at the beach, I think about all the times you did it before me. Thank you for paving the road. My kids thank you too.

Thank You for Locking Us Out and Making Us Play Outside

1985Thank you Mom for that one time you locked us out of the house and told us we had to play outside for an hour before we came back in? Yeah. I might have been mad then, but thank you for that. You taught us how important it is to move and play and use our surroundings to be entertained. You taught me how to pass that on to my kids, and I’m grateful for that.
