…then I will tell you that taking the kids the to the apple orchard wasn’t completely fabulous. We had some moody kids, it was really hot, it was very crowded and I made the stupid decision to let the kids eat moon-pies in the car…gushy, mushy, falling apart in your hands moon-pies. In fact, my friend’s son was so appalled at the state of the messiness that he burst into tears upon realizing his lack of control over said mess.
Every once in a while it’s possible to take a picture which truly captures the joy of the moment, but if I’m being honest, then I will tell you that the photos we took yesterday were moments of fiction…fake smiles and apparent joy which were only the direct result of an angry mom making threats.
Ahh, the joys of parenting!
