Mums can do ka-rah-tay, too.
The kids' karate school had a Mum's day on the Saturday before Mother's Day. The mums got to break a piece of wood and then we were presented with a flower from our kids. It was something I've never done before and honestly I was a little scared. But! I broke the wood on the first hit. William and Drew were proud of me but not nearly as proud as I was (secretly) of myself. It was so fun to get up and be involved in their karate. I think this earned me a bit of street cred with them, too. In case they ever were beginning to doubt, this was just a reminder. Don't mess with Mommy. She's the real deal.
