Summer is here people.
Ain’t no denying it.
I sweated straight though my panties at the soccer field last weekend.
Gross if you attempt to conjure an image of me in my soaking wet drawers, so yeah, don’t do that.
Just know that the kids are home, the sun is out (when it’s not a torrential downpour), the humidity is starting to make me hallucinate, and we’re already spending an insane amount of time in our swimsuits (well, them, not me really).
I have grand plans for how I’m going to bring the joy of summer home this year but, if I’m honest, we could probably continue on this path of low maintenance awesome and no one would really notice or care.
Want to make sure your kids have a rocking summer without breaking the bank, throwing out your back, or losing your ever loving mind?
Just do this…
Dude Mom’s Guide to an Awesome Summer: 10 Things ANY Mom Can Pull Off This Summer
1. Go thug life for a day. Arm sleeve super hero tattoos are pretty gangsta if you ask me.
2. Practice diving catches. Over. And over. And over again. I can not guarantee that you won’t throw out your back and/or lose your mind on this one. However, it’s a cheap way to make your kids (and their future football coaches) love you.
3. Go fishing. It’s really only fun if they catch something. Otherwise, they get bored and they scare all of the fish away skipping rocks and throwing sticks and junk.
4. Play dress up. For those who don’t know, he’s NOT a hero, he’s a secret agent. Obviously.
5. Go camping. SIKE. Like I’d ever suggest to any human that they should seek shelter in a flimsy structure sans air conditioning and a private poop place, with nothing but work and swatting bugs to keep you busy. But, s’mores are so delicious aren’t they? You can easily enjoy those bad boys on your own deck. Stay out until dark and star gaze if you like. It will feel real, minus all the sucky bits.
We’re not the only one’s feeling the burn of summer so this week we’re featuring some great summer shots, including an absolutely amazing Mad Hatter Tea Party, fabulous peacocks, discussing the topic of hitting, pinching and getting kids back (with a great photo), and some lovely shots of farmland and barns.
