Run fast and jump high

We have eight new sneakers in the house. Six of them sport a light-up Spiderman. Two of them are mine. The boys put them on for the first time after dinner last night and of course needed to try them out. We decided that they needed to run outside since Aidan was going to go through the glass doors while watching them light up. Plus it was dark and they light up! Noah and I ran at top speed down the street with Violet before the rest of them got outside. I passed the torch to the brothers who ran a synchronized course as instructed by Sammy. When it came time to go in, I said, “last one to Mommy is a rotten egg”. Sporting MY new sneakers, I waited until they got about 5 steps away and ran. Then I heard the blood curdling screams of Sam & Noah, who had crashed into each other at top speed.

As if this Mother of the Year didn’t feel bad enough, Sammy, through sobbing tears, said, “Mommy, you shouldn’t have run”.
