When he gets home at night, that's it. The girls
He didn't hesitate, and took them outside with him. Usually I would leave the cleanup and go outside for some family time. Instead, I decided that I would take that opportunity to get the house tidied up from dinner. I would put a load of laundry on, clean up some toys and well, just enjoy the peace.
As I walked around my living room throwing toys in the toy box and picking rice up off the floor, I couldn't help but laugh at everything I could hear though the windows..
It went a little something like this:
"Gracie, don't touch that! Lylah, get down from there. Gracie, i told you not to touch that! Lylah, you're going to fall!"
HA!! Does it get any better than that?
My first instinct is always to run to the rescue. Tonight, however, the evil inside me took over.
I stood there and giggled. Alone in a room, giggling away like a school girl.
I was thinking "TAKE THAT!"...
Big deal!! He's having trouble controlling the two of them for 20 minutes while they're outside.. I do it 12 hours a day, 7 days a week!
So, I continued to do what any other resentful mommy would do... I hid behind the blinds and listened, and laughed.. (thank god no one could see me,,, I would have looked like a complete freak, peeking out the windows,, laughing hysterically by myself)
I could hear the irritation in Peter's voice getting stronger and stronger..and then I heard water spraying. "GRACIE!!!! Give me that! Get the hose off my patio... UGGGHHH"
LMFAO,,, at this point I could have rolled on the floor laughing. I honestly almost peed my pants..
Next I hear Gracie's little voice saying:
"DADDY! I'm sorry!!"
This is when I piped up. I was unable to wipe the smirk off of my face. I peeked out the door and said "DADDY!"
"Do you need a time out?" laughing out loud again at the look on his face
"Umm you don't seem to have much patience tonight"
He gave me the dirtiest look, shook his head and continued watering the flowers..
Me? I went back inside laughing.... by myself! A little while longer with the "angels" wouldn't hurt him!
I always say that it is good for the men to experience these situations.
Have a great day ladies!!
