Bears in a hammock

This is pretty much what my kids do to me when I get in our hammock.

Two years ago, I bought a hammock. Save for the urgent care visit to rule out a concussion in one of my kids, it’s been a solid investment in relaxation. The video below is precisely what my kids do whenever I decide to relax in the hammock for a bit. With that said, my nipples are more photogenic. I recommend cocoa butter.

“Hey, look Johnnie! Mom is relaxing. None of that on our watch.”
