They're going to give me a complex

This weekend we get to GO AWAY WITHOUT OUR KIDS! Grandma and Grandpa Seaquist are coming to stay with the three munchkins for us. (bless their hearts!) I don't know if I will know what to do with myself if I don't have diapers to change, meat to cut, spills to clean up, and noses (and other things) to wipe. We sold it to the kids by saying that they are getting a grandparent weekend so we HAVE to go away so they get time alone. That worked so well these have been the comments from Ainsley:
  • Could you please just leave on Friday night instead of Saturday?
  • Don't come home until really late on Monday night.
  • Why can't it be grandparent week instead of just a weekend.
  • I have to get my list ready of everything we are going to do and have fun with while you are gone with Grandma and Grandpa.

And the best:

  • I'm just really glad you are leaving because we just need a break from you and time with Grandma and Grandpa.

Wow! That sure is a kid-version of "Here's your hat and coat, what's your hurry?" Sounds like things will be fine without you. Have a GREAT time!

I assume you have suppressed the "right back 'atcha, kid" in the back of your throat?

I am glad you guys are getting away.

You are the "word master!" Seriously, that is genius, pure genius. If bad news ever comes my way, please be the one to tell me! =)
