My son had a field trip a few weeks ago to Stone Mountain. It’s a huge mountain here in GA that people who are all about that fitness life climb. I refuse! So my son and his friends tried to get me to climb here is how the conversation went
Dman: Mom, you came on our field trip are you climbing the mountain?
Me: Hell to the no
His Friend: Come on Ms. Kita you can do this. If we can do this you can do this
Me: let me repeat myself Captial H to the E…to the double hockey sticks NO
His Friend: You are going to climb this mountain you can do this come on
So to appease them I walked up with them for about 5 min. They kept stopping to listen to the tour guide talk about the mountain it was a learning field trip
Me: Oh wow look at the time. Well it was nice walking with you all but I gotta go
Dman: Come on mom, please
Me: I love you but not enough to climb this mountain for you.
His Friend: You disappoint me I look up to you Ms. Kita
Me: You should look up to God he will never disappoint you
I started to walk away being proud of my decision not to walk up that mountain. As I was coming down the mountain I ran into another parent and we sat and watched the pretty leaves fall from the trees
The kids came back down and my son was in pain.
BTW I went on the field trip because I do like to show up for my kids. I may not participate but I do show up. I want my kids to know at least I am there.
Dman: Mom, Mom….my legs hurt, my feet hurt, I am in so much pain. Why do my thighs hurt?
Me: *falls out laughing* you see why I didn’t climb that mountain but I am proud of you because you did it.
He was aching for a min after that trip. I almost felt bad for him….almost
