A Mother's Day Riddle: What do these things have in common?

A long walk through a mossy and fern filled woods that surprisingly opens to a field and a duck filled pond.

An ice cream dessert magically transformed into a clown by some crafty chefs.

School performances, big and small. Kids singing and dancing and giving us their best effort.

Giant inflatable slides. The fun is under-rated!

The Weinermobile. Seriously, who thought this was a good idea?
And the Answer Is: All of these things are ten times more fun when you can share them with your kids! Think about it. As an adult, do you really get excited about the Weinermobile? If there is a kid in the car...then it is SO exciting!
So, this Mother's Day, I am Grateful and Thankful to have so many sources of fun, excitement and JOY in my life. Thanks to all of my kids for making this journey so much fun everyday!

I love looking at the world through the kids' eyes. Imagine what we'd be missing if we didn't have kids!

I agree, and I've said it many times before when I hear parents moan. It's not supposed to be fun for you, the fun you get is watching the kids have fun.

That really does make it all worthwhile.
