I’m going with highlights here because I cannot possibly begin to sift through all the emotions and thoughts in my head right now. Part of me would love to do a complete recap of our entire trip and share all the fun details of the last dinner party I hosted, but I simply don’t have the mental capacity.
Guys, OMG, what a whirlwind the last couple of months have been!
I started moonlighting as a bartender while wrapping up one doozy of a semester. My Mom had knee replacement surgery. I got COVID (first time!). The 12-Year-Old got involved in his school play. AND THE 17-YEAR-OLD IS GRADUATING HIGH SCHOOL?!
Welp, I wish I came back from the road trip with good news to report, but unfortunately, my car broke down on our last leg, and it has totally bummed me out. What a shitty way to kick off summer.
That said, the boys and I still had a fantastic time! So I’m choosing to focus on the pros instead of the woes!
Before I get into the trip I’m planning with the boys, let me wrap my head around something.
This guy, The Baby, The Toddler, the one who made me a mom and changed my life forever, is turning SEVENTEEN on Tuesday!
This week The Boys and I returned from our 10th annual Mother-Sons trip.
*insert head exploding emoji here*
I started this tradition in 2012 after my youngest turned one, and I was still blogging full-time. The idea was to travel at least once a year with the boys, just them and me. I thought it would be a good way for us to bond and instill a sense of independence and intrigue about the world.
