Jump Up...




It always comes back to me, I swear.  I've never been a real involved mom.  Not because I don't want to...I love my kids more than anything in the world...I'm just not that type of person.  For so long I was SO overweight that I physically couldn't do it, and then, well, there's the fact that I'm just not a creative person.  I mean, yes, I am creative in the fact that I love to do scrapbooking and take photos and even play music.  I am not creative however with glue and scissors and glitter.  It's just not how I work.  I don't like the mess.  I don't like not being in control.  BUT, I made a promise to myself that I would be more involved now that I'm physically able to.  Thus...today we made a trip to Jump Up in Channahon.  It's about 20 minutes away and the kids get to play on the inflatables for an hour and a half for $7.  How could any sane person pass that up?  We had a ton of fun.  Seriously.  I even played with them!



Anyway, my photo for today was one that I could have NEVER taken last year...




She had so much fun today.  Emma did too but Emma was more of a given.  Madelyn was very hesitant last time but this time she just had a BLAST.

Until next time...
