My DS and I were outside this evening around 7:30 and there were no kids outside playing in our complex, which is unusual because all summer long they were out there until 10 or 11 at night and we are talking about little 4 and 5 year olds, not just the teenagers.
My son didn't have to worry about anyone taking the swing away from him, we didn't have to listen to the teenagers dirty music, and we also went and picked blackberries and made homemade milkshakes his idea and recipe. This was like a whole different world compare to yesterday that time.
My DS just asked if he could get up early, open his curtains and window and yell at the kids to have a good day at school while he is still in his PJ's. I love it!
