The Creative Mind of the Spawn


I picked the Spawn up yesterday and we headed to the beach.

I'd been telling the Ex Husband that Boot Camp Boy has swim week this week and I was really thinking about him.

I know he's not a really strong swimmer and I hope he does ok.

Apparently the Spawn was all listening ears.

We'd been at the beach for a while when she said to me....

"Mom! I made you something!"

I'd moved my chair to sit in some shade, I could feel my skin getting a little tight and I didn't want to burn to badly.

At some point she had taken a photo of me on the sly while I was laying face down on a beach blanket, soaking up the sun.

It's a horrible picture.

She then photo shopped the picture to make it look like I was dropping down to an island, tiny parachute included.

"Oh My God! Yikes!!"

I laughed pretty hard.

"When did you did this? What am I doing?"

"You're parachuting down to Parris Island. You've got your bathing suit on to help [Boot Camp Boy] with swim week."

Um, yah.....

Happy Monday!

She does surprise! She's totally got my sense of humor and creativity, it's always interesting to see what she comes up with!

    Bless her heart. This was kind of funny and very sweet. Even if the pic made you cringe.
As hideous as the picture was, I loved her reasoning behind it. It did make me laugh and feel better!

She's definitely got a creative little mind. I was always into writing and creating through word, she's more into artsy type stuff visual creativity.

    That technology is beyond me.
She has an app on her phone that makes it easy. Granted, the photo shops look simplistic, but she's a 13 year old girl, they don't need to be award winning CGI.

    Sounds like it's going to be a tough week ahead for him If his mindset is to be in the military ; He will overcome and survive all that they throw at him
It's going to be a tough week but I'm sending him my strength and energy. As long as he doesn't lose his cool and freak out in the water he should do ok.

    She thought of you the way she see your troubles.
    As for your boy he will either sink or swim.
    They are testing his ability to see where they can use him.
    If anything it will make him think more what he wants.
    Then he can push on.
    Relax and enjoy your life more xoxoxo
I thought it was funny that she put me in a situation where I was coming to the rescue... Parachuting in to help my son get through swim week. LOL I'm more worried about him not passing swim week than I am about him drowning or getting injured. He's worked so, so hard...

I don't know how she heard any of the conversation, to be honest. I'd brought her bathing suit and told her to change before we left her dad's house so we could go right to Lake Michigan. Somehow, she did though.

Yes she does. I don't know where she comes up with this stuff, but I love her developing sense of humor.... Most of the time.

    That's too funny! It's also very creative of her to be able to do all of that on a phone.
You should see the stuff she photo shops the cat into.... It's been road kill, a speed bump, the main course of a luau....
