The Mom Hat: Seeking Solace in Bowling

When a child isn’t kicking, screaming or throwing a tantrum, they are actually quiet serene. Last weekend I watched as Kelsey “bowled” outside. We stayed in my in-laws backyard until the stars came out with a toy bowling set. Kelsey had more fun putting the pins in order than she did knocking them down. I sat nearby and watched her bowl. The only sounds I heard were little feet on the grass and birds in the sky. Quite relaxing, it was.
