The Paths of Time

Yesterday I was walking with my children. Correction. They were shooting up the road on their razor scooters. While I followed up behind, yelling, “wait up”.

I laughed to myself.

And remembered (insert zig zag screen here), I am a long cooker.

“You haven’t had that baby yet?”

“Oh my gosh, how many weeks past due are you”

“You haven’t had that baby yet?” (they like to ask this more than once).

I would walk, up and down the street with my HUGE belly. The neighborhood birds in between puffs of smoke would cackle at me, “hey Robin, not yet?”.

No, not yet, I would smile and sigh. Stopping to share the latest news.

Boy was I sight.

By myself puffing up that hill.

I walked up that hill with almost everyone of them.

I’d walk and walk and walk hoping to trigger labor. Maybe today, maybe tonight, I’d hope.

41 weeks….

42 weeks…


And with one of them I was in labor, I remember stopping to catch my breath…

Walk it out.

And now look at me.

They are running ahead and I am savoring this vision of them small, happy, laughing with tall mighty 60 year old trees towering above them.


All from my belly.

Thanks God.


PS Thanks to the High School student who came up with my  super creative post title.

Spring Break At Medieval Times & 4 Tickets to Giveaway!

Will your kids have fun?

Let’s just say in my rear view mirror the whole way home was backseat sword dueling. Going to Medieval Times is a little like going to a theme park.


We had a blast, an absolute blast at the  Atlanta Medieval Times this week. My kids got to participate in the Special Junior Knight Training they are offering April 7th through April 10th. Now a few stats, you have to be 5 and older to participate, but even if your kids are younger they could sit out the training and still go to the dinner.


The show was generous in excitement, food and fun.

I will say be prepared to bring some extra bucks along if you are going to Medieval Times. There are plenty of opportunities to buy Blinking Swords ($8), Colorful Wands ($8), Tiaras and more. You can get knighted by the King for $20. Which is a great picture. Speaking of picture op we ended up getting our picture taken at the dinner table (which was front row by the way, swwweeet) for $15 (if you don’t have a flash on your camera, than your pictures can turn out blurry since the lighting is lower and dramatic.

We were seated in the Blue Knight section, so as a group we rooted for him and any time our side of the field went up to battle. It was terribly exciting. The jousting, the horsemanship, oh my. The food is served the same to all. You get soup and bread first, followed by meat and end with a pastry. They feed you plenty and you get take home in a box what you don’t finish. Chicken salad the next day;) PS They have vegetarian options!

Now this is a very exciting show, so I don’t know if very small children would like this. It was borderline intense for the 5 year old. Just saying.

SPRING BREAK SPECIAL:  All Seats for these shows are just $29.95 with code SBGR. Book online at or over the phone by calling 1-888-WE-JOUST.
