Kid Week

I just got home from chaperoning six 14 year old boys at Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.

I was supposed to run for 30 minutes today for training.

I think that running behind six energetic teenagers from 9:30AM until 5PM counts.

My feet hurt. We had a frickin' blast. And I realized...

... God blessed me with sons for a reason. At the end we ended up merging with a girl group and... they make me insane. All the giggly, crazy loud voices, absolutely made me half mad.

Listening to them... it was like nails on a chalkboard. God knew what he was doing...

I'm up early tomorrow to chaperone five 4th graders at a baseball game.

I'm tired just thinking about it...

I'm with you on the nails-on-a-chalkboard factor. Too many giggling girls at one time gets on my nerves too.

Bou: I love my daughter dearly, but a van full of her girlfriends was a headache waiting to happen. Maybe it's just the lower voices, but boy noise is easier to handle.
