I deserve a medal.

I took my children skating at the pond around the corner this afternoon. Be proud of me. I hate being cold. I hate winter. I am totally out of shape. I don't even have winter boots. Seriously, feel sorry for me. But I took the kids out, me in my sneakers and them in their skates, and let them skate themselves silly. They've wanted to go skating with me many times before but I always had an excuse. Today they didn't even bother asking. When I suggested it they didn't believe me.

"Did Dad tell you to take us?"
"Are the cousins going to be going?"
"Did you really think of it all by yourself???!"

I finally convinced them I thought of it all by me onesies. How could I resist doing something so nice for them when they're just so darn cute!?!

yup, you certainly did spawn some good looking kids there! :)

yay for skating with them and hilarious that they didn't believe you were going to take them. If I had a medal, I'd give it to ya :)

Classic! I'm right there with ya on the hating being cold. I'm such a hypocritical Maine-iac. I'm loving the PA weather. Only one storm this winter, and it's practically gone in a day. That's my kind of winter. A little bit of snow for Christmas, and then out with the snow and in with SPRING!

...good for you!! (I can see why you think your kids are so cute...'only a mother's love'...just kidding - I'm sure your kids are adorable!!) I used to LOVE skating on the pond when I was little...I haven't been skating in years, though - and also really hate to be cold...good for you, though!! I'm sure your kids were very pleased and impressed!!
