The more things change the more they stay the same

When I was younger every now and then my mother would make us come in early from playing out side and take a bath and put on our pj's while it was still day light out side.

I would go in kicking and screaming all the way. I would gripe how all my friends got to stay out and play till it was dark. I would gripe about having to take a bath. I would moan about how it was still day light out side and I was in my room in my pj's. I sulked till the sun went down and tried to reassure myself that I didn't miss a thing.

The boys didn't put up a fight when I said time to come in. Well R8 didn't. R3 thinks he is nature boy and should be out side all the time. So any time I say come in, there is some sort of ruckus.

Here it is 8:05 PM and I am in my pj's. Happy as can be.

The boys are bathed and watching a movie. Hubs is on the couch, with my lap top watching the Astros.

Me, I'm just chillin'. Funny how things change as we get older, yet they stay the same.

Funny how things change as we get older, huh? Cute post.

I just had flash backs to my childhood too! Bath, fresh PJ's and the long summer nights :)

Perspective is a FUNNY thing.

Sounds like a perfect summer evening to me, though!
