Out, out, OUT!!

It doesn't happen often. I mean, it really happens almost never. But, this Saturday morning it did, and it was oh so welcomed! Honey was actually out of the sack before me, on a weekend!! I mean up, dressed, wrangled the kids into the kitchen, fed them, had them get dressed, brush their teeth, everything. Keeping in mind, this was going on at 7:00 "A" "M" I was ridiculously relieved it was him and not me. However....

7:15a - Mina: "Mommy, Dad made waffles and gave me too much. I can't eat all of it."
Me : "That's ok Baby, eat what you can and leave the rest."

7:16a - Michael: "Mommy, I'm not brushing my hair this morning, it's Saturday. I want to just wear a hat."
Me: "Fine!"

7:22a - Michael: "Hey, where is my Hershey sweat shirt?"
Me : " I don't know, did we get it home last night from Zack's?"
Michael : "Oh, no I didn't."
Me: "Well, just wear your football one."

7:30a - Mina: "Mommy, my play shoes have something inside that feels weird on my foot. Can I wear my school ones....I just can't fine anything else."
Me: "OMGOSH!! I don't care if you wear your ballet slippers, get out!"

7: 34a - Michael: "Mommy, can I have a piece of gum?"
Me: "Are you kidding me, where is your Father?"
Michael: "He's in the kitchen."
Me: "For cryin' out loud, ask Daddy would you please!"
Michael: "We never ask Daddy anything though"
Me: giggle "Well, start and stay out!!"

8:00a - Out of bed. Ahhh, a full twenty minutes of peaceful bliss. I take a long hot shower, shave.....In peace. I get my self together and then I hear it. Nothing!! They're gone, all of them, whew! I head down the hall and into the kitchen to where an obvious bomb had dropped an hour earlier.

At that point I didn't care. Daddy had them and they were out. I didn't even call to find out where they were......I was alone and didn't want the moment ruined by hearing, "We'll be there is 5 minutes!"

Whoo-hoo, listen to the sound of silence. Hope it lasted longer than 5 minutes, and you were able to enjoy the freedom for awhile.
Take care, Meow

Silence in your own house? How much longer do I have to wait for that to happen? I hope you enjoyed it for a while!

LOL too funny this is pretty much the way it goes if Prince Charming should ever happen to get up before me.

I'm so in touch with this feeling. Sometimes it's like 'get out, I don't care if you go play in the street!'

I hope you got enjoy many more moments of "free" time!
I always find it funny how my kids will ask me for something too, even when their dad is the more obvious pick (at least to me anyways!)

Tell me it isn't so! I have never actually SEEN Honey get out of bed on a weekend before. And I've sat at the door WAITING for him to get up - it's just never happened. If I were you, I would have snuck to the kitchen just to get a picture of him actually cooking something. On a weekend. For the kids. How come he never makes US breakfast when I'm there??? lol

In fact, I don't think I've ever seen you HAVE a moment in an empty, quiet house. I'll forgive you for not calling me in that moment - I know you were enjoying the blue moon.
