Barefoot Kind of Momma

I've started a new blog. :-)

Barefoot Kind of Momma

I have high hopes of being able to transfer my posts from here to there. ;-) Thank you for all of your support and I hope you continue to follow me on my journey through parenting.

Color Runner

If you do not know what a Color Runner is you really must find out! I'll help you: Color Runner

Today my sweet hubby and I took our oldest, Mini, to run her first Color Run. IT WAS AWESOME! It was not without it's difficulties though. Apparently, Mini had outgrown her tennis shoes, which we did not fully realize until after the first mile. By "we" I mean "me & Mini" as hubby was actually running while we were....moseying? It was a joy to watch Mini do Color Angels in the powder (a nontoxic color powder that is various colors) and, of course, everyone thought she was adorable and were eager to dump more color on her. :-)

At 4 years old, Mini barely made it over the finish line but she did it. And she wants to do it again. I think we will because this race that is not a race at all is all about happiness and joy. I din't run barefoot (I'm not crazy!) but I might as well have judging by the color of my toes. :-D

I'm a Barefoot Kind of Momma (I hope)

Huh? I can hear you now- what is she talking about?? Well today after nap my daughter asked if we could go outside and play and I said sure but you need to get some clothes on first. (She had clothes on before nap time, I swear!) She asked if she needed shoes and I said 'nope' which lead, of course, to the inevitable "why". Well, because that's how we roll in this house. Why wear shoes if you don't need to? Why worry about things if you don't need to? So, I'm a Barefoot Kind of Momma...well, I'm trying to be.  Join me on my journey of raising 3 kids while trying not to worry about the small stuff, you know, like wearing shoes when we play on the back patio.
