Today we went a pumpkin patching. There were bouncy houses, tall tube slides, hay rides, a petting zoo, and a corn maze. It was a good time although I have to admit that the corn maze gave me a bit of a fright.
No, I was not worried about getting lost in the corn, or really even loosing Cody and/or Carter in the twists and turns. It was the fact that I had forgotten to ask before we were deep within the maze, forgot to ask if either of the boys had to use the bathroom. It ended up being a non issue, but the thought did stay at the forefront of my mind until we were safely out of the field.
Here is a picture of the view from the inside, looking up.
That such a ‘Mom’ thought ! Has happened to me too. A completely trivial doubt enters my mind regarding the children and then I gnaw at it for hours 🙂
And the kids remain happily unaware of all the turmoil !
I know, right?!? All this internal turmoil we mothers carry with us. It is nice that the kids can simply be kids and not be burdened with such thoughts.
Absolutely right ! 🙂
