Parenting is always an adventure in the making. Just yesterday I took my three little people and one of my son's friends to Six Flags Great America. The lines were long, the wait times were insane, my son and his friend forgot tot text me to let me know where they are and I had a mini panic attack thinking they were lost to me and how was I ever going to tell my friend I had lost her child; when all the while my son and his friend were in an arcade as I was wearing downs paths looking for them both!
You get what I am saying?? An adventure in the making . . . the kids, all exhausted as we dragged our feet into the house at 11:00 pm last night. By the way, all my kids are still sleeping at 10AM this morning! Hallelujah - hot hot coffee for me!
And today, we are off on another adventure, my little one will be getting her molds taken for the beginnings of the braces journey. My son will be getting a bracket reattached because he was eating sticky candy yesterday at Great America and pulled it off. He has been on this braces adventure since he was 8 . . . he is 13 now, as he frequently reminds me that he is almost able to legally drive?
After the orthodontist adventure we are headed down town to have fun in the sun in the city and then off on a museum adventure tonight. Family membership night at a local museum my family loves. It will be another late night for us.
This summer has been sort of a bust for us since Chicago has been having so much rain. Like, literally, every single day. The past two days it has not rained. There is also not any rain in the forecast today either. Thus my need(and rush) to get in some activities that will involve the sun shining down on us. We are greatly deprived of Vitamin D right now.
Though yesterday was an adventure and today will be an adventure, most days our adventures happen at home. My daughters finally made it out of bed and they plopped themselves right in my chair and turned on Netflix and are finishing their own adventure with Hiccup and toothless. They take some dragon rides each and everyday to watch the all-new Netflix original series :Dragons: Race to the Edge. My girls, along with Hiccup and toothless embark on unparalleled adventures together.
Are your kids fans of Toothless? Since the first movie, How to Train Your Dragon, my middle child my first daughter has been smitten. There is something about Toothless that just speaks to her. She is a Dragon lover and a Dragon Rider at heart. We have stuffed Toothless, we have plastic Toothless, we have big and little Toothless toys all about our home. She wants Toothless to visit her here in our home. What an adventure that would be!
Dragons: Race to the Edge
Get a first look at the all-new Netflix original.
Dragons: Race to the Edge soars beyond their home on the island of Berk in search of new dragons.Dragons: Race to the Edge introduces some of the most exciting dragons yet, each with its own amazing abilities -- shock waves, cannon balls and fire blasts, just to name a few.
With the magical Dragon Eye, an artifact Hiccup finds aboard an abandoned ship, Hiccup learns there is more outside the confines of Berk, and that a little curiosity and determination can make every day an exciting journey. In Hiccup’s own words, “this changes everything.”
