Tuesdays With Tyler: At the Blueberry Festival

Tyler and I went to a blueberry festival at a Protestant Church a few weekends ago.  It’s funny, you parents drag you to these things that you complain about as tweens and teens as really cheesy and then you bring your kids to the same things!  We didn’t know a soul but the people there were welcoming and friendly.


Tyler immediately went for the cupcake with blue frosting while I went for the more traditional blueberry short cake. We drank lemonade and then I convinced him to try something with actual blueberries in it, blueberry pie!


They had a band and Tyler immediately began dancing.  He loves to dance.  I tried to get him to dance with a little girl there but they were too shy.  I was his dancing partner for a while.


Looking more like a concertgoer at Woodstock, Tyler gets into the peace and love by listening to Christian folk music!

I love summer nights like this.  Whenever we go to something like this, Tyler always asks, “Can we come here again next week?” and I have to explain to him that these fairs and festivals happen only once a year. Fortunately our wonderful times together are a lot more often than that!

About mamasick

Emily Cullen is a pen-name. I suffer from chronic illnesses and diseases which include Bipolar Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes and Fibromyalgia. I had battled Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis but there is no longer evidence of me having these diseases and my Rheumatologist has declared them to be "burnt out" of my system. I am separated from my husband, “Grant”. Our son, “Tyler” was born in September of 2006 and suffers from tics and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and is delayed in fine and gross motor skills. In my blog I seek to let sick moms know that they are not the only ones going through this, and to educate people about what can happens when one becomes catastrophically ill. I also strive to break down stereotypes of what a “Welfare Mom” is like. Anything that I have gone through due to being sick, is written on the pages of Mama Sick.
