Mommy, you're a loser!

The kids (Payson, mostly) have randomly been asking to go bowling lately. The only thing I can think of is that they were inspired by Grandma and Grandpa's Wii.

So this afternoon we went! We weren't sure how it would go because of how young they are, but I'm pretty sure it was a big hit!!



My freaking adorable kids, waiting for their balls to S.L.O.W.L.Y. reach the pins.



Final Scores:



Jack 98
Payson 69
Mommy 106 (with bumpers, mind you)
Daddy 179

Um, did anyone notice that my not-quite-two-year-old bowled a mere 8 points under his mother?? The boy got a spare!! Actually, I believe he got multiple spares!!

And in case you're wondering about the title, any time I didn't bowl a strike or spare, Payson would casually say to me, "Mommy, you're a loser." I swear I try to teach my kids manners!

Both of your children beat my average score. I'm so embarrassingly bad at bowling! I tried with my left hand just for fun the last time I went. I figured I couldn't get any worse. Hahaha......
