I'm an outdoor mom

I've come to realize that I'm an outdoor mom. I much prefer to spend my days outside with my boys than stay cooped up inside all day with two crazy monkeys.

Maybe it's because I have two BOYS... I don't know, but dealing with them all day within the confines of our house is maddening.

The fighting, whining, crying, etc is just too much to take some days.

But nice long days spent outside getting dirty, sweaty, rough and tumble boys is just what they need.

They play hard, have lots of fun, nature adventures and go to bed happy...and so do I.

I'm becoming the same as Evan gets older! I think it's a necessity with boys. It makes me really glad we replaced the fence last year so the backyard is a pretty safe place for him to play.

I am so the opposite. I would much rather stay indoors and sit at the kitchen table and play playdoh or do a craft, or do letters/reading, do numbers/counting, build with legos, do puzzles, etc. Roland likes outside, and likes the park, but I usually keep it to maybe 30-60 minutes a day. I have to stretch myself to do outdoor stuff more, but in the end I find it more work, not less. Staying in and doing activities and playing is way less physically and mentally exhausting and playing outside to me,hahaha
