Bad mom alert

Bad mom alert! We have a new family activity that we’ve been enjoying every weekend and it doesn’t involve any fresh air or exercise (unless you can class air conditioning as fresh air and reaching into a bag of popcorn as exercise…)

I don’t know about anyone else but when we wake up (early) on a Saturday morning our main objective is to get out of the house without doing anything too strenuous.
