I may never be a real grown-up

Cass hit his full stride heading for the house, spurred on by the thought of hot chocolate.

"Last one there's a rotten egg!'

And what does it say about me that the first thing I thought to say wasn't

Don't run! You'll fall!
or
That's not nice!
or even
Watch out and don't push Rosey!

but

'NOT INCLUDED!'

It says you've given me another reason to want to be your friend IRL!

I will have to remember "not included"!! It may stop me from crushing my son's spirit by immediately taking off and beating him in the race to the house.....

"Every dream can come true,
It can happen to you,
If you're young at heart."

Oh, that's too funny, I haven't heard that in years. That and NO BACKSIES!

Must be something in the air, I blogged about something from my younger days, too.

"Not included"? Does that work? Cos I'm ALWAYS the rotten egg!

I'm just a boring mom. I don't say ANY of those things, I just watch them run.

I grew up in a family of five, and I have five of my own. Nothing scares me anymore. I'm the last mom on the block to stop their kids from doing something potentially dangerous. I figure if they hurt themselves badly enough, they won't do it again, or they'll be more careful next time. (Well, excluding things that are REALLY dangerous)

Hahaha!

But what about "Don't run, you'll put somebody's eye out"? Yeah, it doesn't make sense but it would probably be the first thing out of my mouth.
