Witch Stew


June 11, 2013 by themommahen

All the rain we’ve gotten during our first week of 70 Days of Summer has left some nice puddles in the driveway. Our morning was spent outside practicing our new sport of tennis, but it didn’t take long before we ended up next to a couple of the puddles.

The Hatchlings were busy stirring with their sticks, adding rocks and swirling everything together. “Look, Mommy! Witch stew!” the older two called to me.

H#3 walked up to offer me his little meaty paws and told me, “Mommy, I help!”

I turned around and heard a kerplunk behind me, and when I turned back I saw H#3 standing laces high in one of the puddles with a huge grin on his face. His brother and sister laughed with joy at this silly little boy they call their little brother. And then that silly little brother stepped out and did it again. And again. Until his white socks were as gray as the gravel in the witch stew.

Walking in the snow So beautiful. But please let the power stay on. Morning chicken duty is always more fun when snow is falling. A little cold today. #brrr #beach I'm gonna Momma Hen you all for a minute with a gentle reminder that giving kids access to social media accounts -- whether theirs or yours, whether they're "old enough" or not -- without any guidance or oversight is not so different from letting your kid drive a car on the highway without any training. The damage may not be physical, and with a little luck there wont be any damage at all, but...images seen cannot be unseen, words said cannot be unsaid, things heard cannot be unheard.
