Sometimes when Sam is having a minute we'll go for a walk to help him settle down. Sometimes he needs to run and one of his sisters will bike ride beside him.

Last week he was wound pretty tight so even though it was dark and really, really cold the two of us bundled up and went for a walk.

There's nothing quite like finding a toilet on the side of the road to restore a teenage boy to good humor. And yes, he did ask if he could drop his pants so it would look more realistic in the picture but I said no.

I know, I know.

I'm a really party pooper.

See what I did there?



  1. I thought you were going to say that you were a "potty pooper," but maybe that would've been too much.

    1. No, that would have been funnier...just not that quick thinking I guess :-)


I appreciate any thoughts you'd like to makes our visits so much more enjoyable!
