The Pumpkin Patch.
I'm just going to put something out there. Things like this are not my favorite. I think I'm supposed to love activities like this - the Pumpkin Patch, trick-or-treating, visiting Santa and the Easter Bunny, etc. Truthfully, I'd rather spend our family time at home, watching a movie or building train tracks or reading books. Social situations give me anxiety, and I end up feeling tired and drained after spending the morning around hundreds of other people and their children.
Despite how I feel, I realize that Sawyer doesn't seem to share my feelings about outings like this. He's an extrovert and thrives on being around other people. He just loved the tractor ride and the slides and the zip line swing. He spent a good ten minutes with the animals at the petting zoo and was so sad when we had to leave. He had such a good time that he only had 2 fits in the whole trip. That may be an all time low.
Life changes when you have a kid. Everyone knows that. Everyone tells you that you have to make sacrifices, but only time teaches you the intricacies of the sacrifices you have to make. I have to put aside my introverted tendencies to cultivate my son's extroverted personality. Sometimes it's hard and I have to fight through the day with sweaty palms, but I never regret giving Sawyer these experiences. He's worth it.
Pretty deep for a trip to the Pumpkin Patch.
