Poor, Poor Daddy!

Peter had some yard work to do after dinner last night.

When he gets home at night, that's it. The girls do not will not leave his side.
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:
"Sorry Daddy!"
"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.
I'm thinking hoping that after a situation like this, Peter will have a little more empathy when he gets home at night and sees that I have absolutely no patience left. Instead of asking me why I have no patience, he'll keep his mouth shut and just "get it".. If he doesn't, I'll just send him in the backyard with the 2 girls and a hose again!!

Have a great day ladies!!

i love this! i have a hard time myself not saying anything when my husband sounds like he needs to be rescued. it's amazing how kids pick up routines with mom because they're home all day with us, and it's the dad that has to get adjusted. good for you momma!

LOL too funny and too true! My husband actually tried to tell me he didn't do his homework because I am out of patience with Jensen at the end of the day. I was like uh uh. Homework is a priority and Jensen does fine when it's just me and him. He only acts out when Rob is here! said...

Did daddy take a time out? Very cute post ;)
