Beach Trip

Thursday this past week--my weekend--began with a brilliant blue sky filled with the magical light of a surprise pre-Spring Sun.

"MiniWarrior" I called over my shoulder to the lanky 12 year old stretched out on the sofa in the family room, "Come here I want to talk to you about something."

"What I'd do?" He said, body taught, paused in full alert for an impending Mom lecture.

"Nothing. I just want to talk to you for a moment."

He climbed off the sofa and shuffled slowly towards me, trying to read the expression on my face. "Yeah, Mom?"

"How'd you like to skip school tomorrow and head to the beach." I said, holding back a smile at the wary look on his face.

Shadows disappeared as his grin scattered joy from his mouth and lit up his eyes. "For real? Really?"

"For real. Really."

"You're the best Mom, ever!" He exclaimed as he pumped a victorious fist.

Indeed. I am. ;)

I know, right? Do you think I can twist fate and become my own Mom so I can go back in time to redo my childhood? :D
