Take Your Kid To Work Day

I mentioned yesterday that it was "Take Your Kid To Work Day".
Two of my kiddo's decided to not grow up too soon and stay in school.
One didn't. :0)

Sooo...after spending half his day with his Dad and a hot, sweaty garage and the other half with me, Bear decided that...

#1. He would never want to be a "Stay At Home Mom" because.."It's too confusing". LOL!
#2. Sweating in a garage is not cool either, however, using power tools is "Sweet".
#3. Scaring his Mom with the skateboard stunt yesterday was the highlight of his day.
#4. Supermodeling very well could be the life for him.

Today I'll feature Kody's life as a working man mechanic.

This is when we first got there...he's still clean, cool and happy. HA!

Here he is waiting for someone, anyone to pull up to the full serve pump.

Showing us what a taken apart dashboard looks like..

I have no idea what this dashboard part is called, but he seems to think it's important enough to show ya'all...

Power tool time....

His favorite tool of the day...the fire thing {OK...I have no idea what to call this flame thrower thingy}...

This is how I found him taking a break. :0/

The classic "mechanic pose" :0)

"Ummmmm, Dad..where is this supposed to go?"

Another break in the A/C, acting like the boss...

Trying to figure out either,
#1. The All Data system.
#2. Why there is no interent on that PC. :0)

Every garage, somewhere, has the "Wall Of Fame"

By now he's getting hot, bored, hungry, tired and wondering when the fun starts.

That's when he found this calender and the fun started again.

So...I'm saving the best for last and yeppers, this leaves me speechless too.

It's a cardboard cutout..I swear, and no..I had no idea he was going to do that, but it seriously doesn't suprise me!! LOL!!

So..with that last photo, we left to have lunch with Kolin and back home for some modeling time.
I'll show you those tomorrow because right now..I really have to run. :0)

Have a great day everyone!!

Love, Kim

here's an early mothers day poem

Being a Mother

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after
you've had a baby.
That somebody doesn't know that once you're a mother "normal" is a
matter of perspective.

Somebody said you learn how to be a mother by instinct.
That somebody never learned how to program a feeding pump.

Somebody said being a mother is boring. . .
That somebody never stood over their child and prayed they would make
it through the night.

Somebody said if you're a good mother your children will turn out good.
That somebody thinks a child comes with directions and a guarantee.

Somebody said good mothers never raise their voices.
That somebody never yelled for their partner to quick run and get
something to catch vomit in.

Somebody said you don't need an education to be a mother.
That somebody never spent endless hours on the internet researching
their child's condition.

Somebody said you can't love an unborn baby as much as you love one
that you hold in your arms, that certain things were "meant to be."
That somebody never lost a baby.

Somebody said a mother can find all the answers to her child-rearing
questions in the books.
That somebody never been handed a diagnosis for which no books have
ever been written.

Somebody said the hardest part of being a mother is labor and delivery.
That somebody never watched her baby get wheeled into the O.R.

Somebody said a mother can do her job with her eyes closed and one
hand tied behind her back.
That somebody never managed a med schedule, feeding schedule,
nebulizer schedule, therapy and doctor schedule.

Somebody said a mother's job is done when her last child leaves home.
That somebody never had children who may never leave home. And if they
do leave home, be it a home on earth or a home in heaven, that child
will never stop being a part of a mother's very being.

Somebody said your mother knows you love her, so you don't need to tell her.
That somebody isn't a mother. And that person doesn't know that a
child can say volumes with their eyes or body language even if their
lips never utter a single word.

To all the moms who do a little bit extra, I know you didn't ask for
this particular journey or expect it, but here you are, doing what has
to be done.

And Kim, yeah, the muscles... wow... you're right, they grow up so fast! Kody, you're one handsome young man. Thanks for the pics. Love yaz! Jen from WI

Tell the Bear to be careful with that skateboard. My 16 year old nephew just broke his arm doing a trick. He's been riding for his entire life.
I love the work pictures.
Have a great weekend "K" family!!
