Last week my son came home and I thought I heard him say, Mom, I want to go to the pumpkin patch. My heart skipped a beat and my eyes lit up. I love going to the pumpkin patch! But I haven’t been for years because my teens don’t think it’s cool to hang out with mom and dad on the weekend at the pumpkin patch. But maybe my son had a change of heart.
When do you want to go? I asked.
I’m going tonight, with a girl from school, he said.
Aaaahhh. So it’s a date?
No, not a date. Just a friend.
Guess I can’t come along and take some pictures for the blog?
Mom, that would be weird.
Then my other son came downstairs. Mom I need a pumpkin.
Yessss! I get to go to the pumpkin patch after all!
Mom, let’s just pick it up at the store. My son had a busy Saturday planned and a party that night. He said he wouldn’t be able to make it to the pumpkin patch.
