This week, my younger children started their Spring Break vacation here in Florida. Should be fun and relaxing week for this mom right?
Well it’s been a whirlwind to say the least. I started this week with hopes to enjoy both of my loves alone. Like looking forward to that alone time that we miss during those long school days which I know they really need and deserve. I was planning day trips like going to a water park, visiting our local recreation park and adding a few surprises that they didn’t know about yet.
Usually our weather during this time of the year is pleasant so I just knew that the weather would be perfect for what I had planned for them. Nope!
I was totally wrong. The past two days have been chilly,rainy and overcast. It certainly made no sense of going to a water park when it was only 67 degrees out.
So I made the best of the day yesterday and we decided to take a drive to our local park. I mean, at this point it’s been two days already and the weather condition didn’t help us out by being stuck in the house. I guess we were going a little stir crazy.
So after packing a small picnic lunch for the kids and I, we finally make it to our destination. It still was on the chilly side and lightly misting but the first 10 minutes, the kids were having a ball at the playground.
I found a picnic table that was covered and it was in eye view for me to watch the kids. Sounds like things were working out? Right?
Well not exactly. My daughter says to me, Mom can you help me up on the swing? I said sure. Granted the swing seat was pretty high so I knew that she couldn’t get up by herself. Within minutes, she was swinging higher and higher. I told her to slow down and be careful. Within 2 minutes after I said that she started to cry. My son hit her accidentally in the head with his swing. I’m telling ya, we were only there for 19 minutes before this happened. Yes, it was one of those days. I took a look at her head and after seeing a bump and blood drawn it was time for us to leave.
As we settled back at home, I felt the urge to make something sweet for us specially after the day we were having. I mean something had to go right. Right?
Luckily, I had Ice Cream, Brownie mix, Butterscotch and Whipped Cream just waiting.
Doesn’t it look so good? My kids forgot all about the yucky weather and injury when they finally got to see and taste my special dessert.
Have you had one of those days that nothing you do goes right?
