Life & Style | I Went To War

Two weeks ago,

I went to war,

Not a real war.

My front yard was the battle field. My daughter armed with her Nerf gun was my enemy number one. 

My weapon of choice was a tiny water gun. 

My husband with his tiny green water gun was an honorary member of The Green Berets.

It was a brutal war.

For 30 minutes straight we chased one another all around the front yard just laughing and giggling while shooting at one another.

This all started when my kid asked me to buy her a Nerf Gun From Target and forced us to play with her in our front yard.
We chased her all around the front yard with our tiny water guns. I kept running to the kitchen sink to reload.

Who said women can't fight in front yard(line)?

Apparently my husband had lots of fun that day since a few days later, he came home with two brand new Nerf guns. He also bought us 1,000,000 rounds of ammo to last us until World War III. 


Last Sunday, after dinner, we went to war again, this time in our living room. 

We had so much fun. We pretended to be soldiers. We hid in the pantry, under the dining room table and behind the kitchen counter trying to avoid the foam bullets. 

I feel ten years younger.

I think, we should all do silly things like this to keep us young.
