And let me just tell you that if this child expects me to be her entertainment the ENTIRE FREAKING summer, there will be a traffic death about mid-June when I have thrown myself out in front of the next passing truck. Yesterday, she and the Door Man went with my Dad to the Memorial Day parade. They came home, and we immediately got in the van to go see Ace at his store. We went out to eat, and then came home. Put the Chandelier Monkey down for her nap, and then it started. It was 95 degrees out yesterday and I wasn't getting anything out that remotely resembled water fun, so I kept them inside for the heat of the afternoon.
I'm BORED. What can I do?
Well, you can fold those three baskets of laundry there.
NO! I don't want to do that.
Well, you can clean your room.
NO! I don't want to do that, either.
Don't ask me what you can do then... go FIND SOMEthing to do.
10 minutes later:
God give me the strength to make it through this summer. Seriously. Yes, she will be signed up for a few things, but not the WHOLE SUMMER!
And don't even get me started on that God-forsaken pool across the river from us.
Can we go? Can we go? Can we go? Can we go?
NO NO NO NO and NOOOOOOO!!!!!
So as soon as the Monkey was up from her nap, I decided to take them outside for a few minutes.
Guess what I heard about 10 minutes into being outside?
Can I go in?
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
BINGO, my ass
