There are times in your life when you really realize your age.
Sometimes it’s seeing an old friend after many years.
Sometimes it’s seeing the kids you used to babysit with their own children.
And sometimes, like today, it’s when you try to keep up with your own kids.
And that’s just what I did. In fact, I think I did a pretty good job considering I’m not even in my 20’s anymore (not even close, in fact). A few months ago I had purchased a Groupon for Air Heads. Air Heads is a giant indoor trampoline and it’s tons of fun. Click on the link and watch the video and I dare you to tell me that it’s not fun! We had an hour of jumping fun but by 13 minutes into the hour, I was out of breath. I should have paced myself. There was heavy breathing, some sweat and lots and lots of laughs! Ethan was more willing to jump for the camera:
I’m linking this picture of Ethan with Sweet Shot Tuesday.
Jackson obliged but wasn’t in the mood to keep at it until I got the perfect shot:Ethan even got behind the camera to take my jumping picture. Before you judge my hairdo and overall appearance, please know that this was at the end of an HOUR of jumping:
When our hour was up, we spent a few minutes in the arcade. Enough time for them to get a bajillion tickets.
I realized it was all worth it when we left the building. As we walked out of the doors, Jackson stopped and gave me the biggest hug and kiss and said, “Thanks mom. I didn’t know it was possible but I love you even more.” I love my kids.
