Tents, 4-Wheelers and Video Games

Charli had posted the other day about the importance of learning to like what interests your kids.  And I know her pain when it comes to liking the things of boys.  I remember watching every dinosaur movie around when my boys were younger.  Then we grew into Batman, Spiderman and the Hulk.  At least the stuff they like has action in it.  I like action movies.  I prefer chic flicks but...

I remember when one of them said I should play the SIMS video game and so they would think I was cool, I played and 2 days later decided I should clean my house and take care of my "real" family.  If you have never played that game, don't.  It is so addictive!  Of course, a yearly Mario Cart tournament is needed.  And definitely Just Dance.  I have learned that each of my boys has a different video game like and dislike and I have to learn to like them all.

Then we got them 4-Wheelers.  I don't like to watch them ride them so we recently brought down my father-in-laws dozer and made a serious track through our property.  They have jumps and hill climbs and all those other things that make a mother cringe, but they love it and Scott and I have even enjoyed it.  I think it will be great summer for all of us.  The neighbors may not like it but, oh well.

I have even found that tent camping is soooo relaxing.  I love the smell of a bonfire and smores and cooking over open flame.  Fortunately we usually camp with my inlaws and they have a camper, so I don't have to give up all the luxuries (bathroom, running water, you know all the things a girl needs).

All that being said to say this.  I have the rest of my life to pursue what interests me.  I only have a few years to enjoy the time I have with my boys.  I want to take advantage of every minute making memories.

Until next time, stay blessed.

Check out what these gals have to say about relationships.
