I have a confession. I had this entire post planned out. Really, REALLY planned out! In the planned post, I had several witty quips about how we parents will do just about anything for our beloved children. Among other things, I’ve memorized every train in the Thomas series, searched high and low for a ratty old panda bear, and endured hour after hour of Strawberry Shortcake’s theme song, all for the sakes of my 3 cherished children.
It was therefore expected (by yours truly) that I had just cracked open the shell of a new stage of endurance for my eldest child. His newest passion, Dungeons and Dragons, is one that I whole-heartedly support. When my child who proclaims to have no imagination (not true) or creative ability developed a love for this time-honored tradition of middle-school boys since 1974, I saw the opportunity for him to enjoy an activity that isn’t attached to a screen or electronic device of any sort… and I JUMPED ON IT.
