Today, this girl and I are blowing off school and heading to Busch Gardens. We could have done this after school, or on Saturday, but there’s something about skipping school to have a fun day with Mom that’s extra special.
Sometimes playing hooky is the right thing to do.
Sometimes they need you all to themselves.
Sometimes they need to know that time spent alone with Mom is fleeting and special and a little bit exciting.
Sometimes they just need to see that building a memory is more important than reviewing spelling words.
Sometimes playing hooky is right because I want them all to know that family is fun and life is an adventure and it’s okay to get away now and again for no other reason than just to have a good laugh. I also want them to know that this is not something that we do all the time and it’s only to be done with Mom and Dad’s blessing and involvement.
Sometimes you just need a break. Today I get my break with her and her alone and we are both giddy with excitement.
What are you up to today?
