Some Female Bonding

By

Well, it’s been quite a few days since I posted.  Blame it on the holiday weekend, I guess.  The chickies and I had an event filled weekend, so I’ve been busy.

Wednesday night we went to see Ice Age 3 in 3D.  It wasn’t a cheap evening, though!  $30.50 just to get in (at 5:00, too!).  Seventeen dollars at the concession stand ($6.50 for each kid – popcorn, drink and fruit snacks and a $4 bottle of water for me).  But, the kids liked the movie, and sat through it well.  That was my first attempt at taking the girls to the movies on my own (aside from the drive in, but it’s OK if they’re restless and loud there).

Friday we had ice cream for dinner.  I throw that at them every once in a while.  Usually when I’m craving some fried ice cream with honey.  Yummmmmmmmm.  Later that night, we went to see some fireworks.  The kids really enjoyed them, and it was worth waking Chloe up from her deep slumber on the couch :)

Saturday we went to my Sister-in law’s camp in Pymatuming.  We did the regular gig – head out on the p0ntoon boat, do some fishing, feed the fish at the spillway, eat some more ice cream, cook out and have a camp fire.  Oh, and Becca got her first burn from a sparkler.  I told her that it was a right of passage.  She could cross ‘get burned by a sparkler’ off her list of things to do while she’s a kid.  Here’s a little ditty they did for their Aunt Kimmie:

Yesterday we got to hang out with Tony.  We had a pizza picnic outside and played some kick ball.  I was a little upset that there wasn’t a new episode of True Blood on last night, but I guess I’ll survive.  It was nice to have some chickie bonding over the last few days.  I’m trying to take everybody else’s advice and ‘enjoy them while they’re young.’  I think I managed to do that this weekend.  I will admit, however, that some days it’s hard to just ‘enjoy’ them.

I guess I’ll just continue to walk on both sides of that line.  You know, the line between ‘I’m your buddy’ and ‘I’m the authority figure.’  I’m guessing that as long as I spend equal amounts of time on each side, my kids should turn out OK and not hate me in the process.

I hope.
