This week, however, all the members of our family are back at home, where we belong, where we should stay, forever and ever, amen.
With that in mind, you will understand why low-key summers are my love language. Definition of low-key:
Having your dad assist you in your dreams toward superhero-dom:
Neither Adelaide nor Atticus could execute that Superman pose; both are way too gangly and leggy anymore. My mom recently commented on the excess of limbs they're both sporting these days; I told her it was like living with spiders. Caedmon's still compact enough- not to mention strangely strong- to make this look easy.
Bubbles are the definition of low-key.
How to know you've kept your kids' entertainment expectations nice and low, where they belong: They lose their minds when you bust out surprise packs of cheap bubbles. You'd think I'd announced we were going to Disneyland.
|Bubbles: The most exciting thing to happen to him all day.|
|Really, this is almost sad.|
