A bunch of you have heard me write or talk about the jammy ride. But I feel I should bring it up just in case someone out there doesn’t know what a jammy ride is.Â Or perhapsÂ you’ve forgotten about it. I would hate to feel like anyone was going to live through another summer with little kids around and not have at least one jammy ride.
Here’s what it is. We would get the kids bathed and jammied and put in bed and prayed over and then we would say our goodnights. A few minutes later my husband would holler, “Jammy ride!” and the kids would all tumble out of bed and come running. Then we would pack them up into the car and head off somewhere usually involving ice cream followed by a drop-in on the grandparents.
I tell you those were the big hits. If it was cold or snowy out, we threw an afghan or blanket in the back with the kids. If it was summertime, it was usually still light out and tough for the kids to get to sleep anyway.
There. My conscience is clear. Now you have no excuse for not scheduling at least one jammy ride this summer!
