Didn't do anything today, my foot!

If you haven't already read my blog about our game night, you should know that part of the craziness of that night had to due with my state of exhaustion. I was so busy with the little stuff on Friday that it took all day to get it done.

At 2:45 p.m. I got in the car to go pick Karina up from school. She got in the car and we picked up our usual conversation once she's belted in and ready to go. If you're a parent, you know the one...How was school today? Did you eat at lunch? Any homework? Anything exciting happen? After which she innocently remarks "So I guess you just stayed home and didn't do anything today, ha?".

Poor child had no idea what she was in for but I guess I was just at that place where out of exhaustion, I could no longer control myself. I looked her straight in the eyes and said, in my most 'what do you think I do all day long, you're lucky I'm not gonna kill you' voice: "DIDN'T DO ANYTHING! I came to pick you up didn't I? Of course, that was after I got up this morning and drove you to school, went back home and made breakfast for your dad and Matthew, washed clothes, filled out the rebate papers for your dad's phone and Sonar program, cleaned the bathroom, cleaned the kitchen, mopped the floors, picked up some supplies from Office Max, ran into Target, and packaged the broken cell phone that you will now accompany me in mailing at the Post Office and then you WILL go with me to the grocery store to buy what WE will make for dinner before we even think about playing games this evening.

Didn't do anything, myyyyyy foot! Thinks she's gonna mess with me! She's got another thing coming!

The foot thing runs in the family; remember my mom? "Aie, mis pieds!"

You must be a super mom. Keeping up with kids is a major event in anyone's life, mom or teacher!!! Love and blessings, Ta cousine qui t'aime....Anita
