Late night at my brother and sister-in-laws cabin…I was told to “commit”!
After dusting the kids off from the rodeo and putting them to bed, the adults hung out by the fire. There was lighting many miles to the north and a couple lightning bugs lighting up the lake for us.
As we sipped margaritas by the camp fire with our post rodeo Bud Light buzz on, my brother determined it was time.
Shan, “I think it’s time to commit!” he said and looks at me. “Sis, you ready to commit?!!!”
He walks into the dark and then emerges again with a bottle of I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE HELL IT IS. Then they kept telling me whatever the hell was in that bottle was fortified, which wasn’t making me feel any better because I am sure that didn’t mean it was packed full of vitamins.
He cracks it open, chucks the cap into the fire and announces it must be finished by passing it back and forth swigging from the bottle like steal away hobos on a train car.
Ohhhh yeah we did! And honestly, didn’t really have a problem doing it, but then he thought it would be a good idea to open another.Filed under Family, Summer 2011 Photo Journal, Tremmels | Comment (1)
This week, CT and I have been kick’n it solo. The other two little monkeys are off at Chinese camp trying to remember how to move their mouths in such a fashion as to make those amazing sounds of language come out right.
Yesterday CT and I spent most of the day together: we had lunch, we ran errands, we did a little shopping, we cruised around town.
It’s a rare moment that I have only one child with me. It’s a rare moment that I am not trying to do twelve things at once.
I realized (yet again) yesterday how fast I’m spinning and how fast my kids are growing up.
I have always known that CT is a great kid, but yesterday, I realized just how much more wonderful he has become.
He is funny and smart and super witty. He is lovely and kind and generous.
As the day drew to a close, I squeezed him tight and thanked him for the day we had together…what a gift.
