Mother/son event

This past Friday at the kiddos elementary school it was time for the annual Mother/Son event.  This year it was the "Win it in a minute" event.

How fun would that be with your son?!

We had a blast!

Here is a little before pic of us in the car before heading in.

I knew once we headed inside I would never be able to grab a photo of the two of us.  It's not great, but at least I got one!

Once inside it was total chaos just like I expected.  Boys running around everywhere!

We did every event that they had set up.  Stacking 5 apples (nearly impossible), getting a gumball into the middle of a tennis racquet, scooting across the floor on a towel with your son (my thighs still sting a little), tug of war with another mom and son, ping pong balls being whipped into laundry baskets, ping pong balls being thrown into a bucket on moms head (very dangerous!), cup stacking, cookie from forehead to face, stacking 6 dice onto a tongue depressor, moving cotton balls from one bowl to another with your nose covered in Vaseline, bouncing quarters into a fish bowl and blowing cups off of a table with a balloon.

It was very well planned and we even got to take home a cool water bottle.

While CX and I were at the event, Sir took Lil' Sis to a movie, "Gnomeo and Juliet".  Sis had a really good time with daddy and talked about their night all the next day.

I am so glad that she had such a great male role model.  And I sure hope that I am setting a good example for a female role model for my son.

Later that night, CX and I stayed up late, just the two of us, playing video games.  I know it's not much, but I think its time well spent on my son.  I had a great time and I'm pretty sure he did too!

Thanks for reading.  See you again soon!
