I decided to follow my pal Kari's lead today and participate in Aloha Friday. It may be the closest I ever get to Hawaii these days :) So I'm putting on my virtual grass skirt right now.
Here's how it works. I'll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
My question: "How would you gracefully excuse yourself from a rowdy game of soccer without disappointing a bunch of boisterous 10 year old boys?"
My answer: I'm okay for the first 30 minutes of game play, but my muscles really start to feel the pain when the boys want to keep going and going. Usually, my pathetic pleas for freedom are dismissed by the happy bunch, but I figured out how to redirect their attention from me. Yesterday, just after the last goal, I yelled to the gang, "Who wants an ice pop?"
Now that I used that line already, I definitely need your help with some more mama life saving responses.
If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and link up at An Island Life. Happy Friday everyone! Are you doing the hula yet?
