Do you know one of the things I like best about vacation?
I love getting to surprise my kids . . . I find myself saying things like, “Sure you can have ice cream again today (for the 5th day in a row!)” or “It’s only 9:00 p.m. – we still have time to do a few more things.”
It is during these weeks that I morph into a mom who is more permissive, more carefree, and sometimes, more fun! My kids have a name for me when I am in this state . . . Vacay Mom!
This past weekend, I acted like “Vacay Mom” (easy to do when you live in Branson!) when I took the girls out to Silver Dollar City’s Midnight Madness. We got to watch these awesome bands play until late into the night:
It was so much fun! When I left Silver Dollar City a few minutes after midnight, I decided to head down the strip and check things out. It isn’t every day that I see what’s going on at this hour, and would you believe that all three Track locations were still open! Had I really wanted to surprise my kids, I would have stopped for a ride or two! But, there are limits to my “Vacay Mom” mode when we’re not technically on vacation.
But, you are! So, take those kids to the Track late . . . they’ll be waiting for you!!
