When dad left for his hunting trip upon the conclusion of Christmas day, mom made lots of plans to keep us distracted from missing him. So after a great puzzle challenge, rock painting session, tent wars, arts & crafts class, Arby’s drive-thru dinner, swimming fun at Three Bears Resort, nerf gun battles, Texas Roadhouse treats, and a Colin sleepover, we were like, “Dad, who?”
Just kidding. Mom gave it her best effort, but in the end, she was unsuccessful at keeping all of the dad blues away… Not because mom needs to up her solo parenting game; it’s just that no one does fun quite like our dad and the days are more complete and joy-filled with him in them. Still, every once in a while, it’s good for us to remember that mom is also
pretty fun not boring.
