Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Sparkle Me Wild 5K

We participated in our first 5K on the 4th of July.  Frankly, I had no idea how it would all play out.  Knowing none of us would run the whole thing, and knowing that Puddin Pop isn't a fan of running, period, I still thought it would be a fun way to get some exercise and make a new memory.

Groupon had a really good deal, and the race was VERY close to the house.  We signed up and got excited about the big day.

We've been sleeping in most the Summer.  I've been scheduling myself later shifts so the kids wouldn't have to get up early each morning.  Even if I close, I'm out by 8:20, so it's a win.

Knowing the race started at 8am, I was worried no one would want to get up to do it.  Worried for nothing.

Sparkle Me Wild puts on a GREAT Family event.  No pressure, shorter routes for those with small children, and the entire family is encouraged to participate.  You can sign up, as an adult, and children can run/walk free of charge, as long as they don't mind forgoing the free shirt and medal that come with being registered.  We. all. registered.
