Dinner at seven…

Dear mom and dad…..

I now completely understand why you sent me away to live with auntie linda when i was younger…..i realize it really wasn’t because you thought it was in MY best interest….but the truth is…

it was in YOUR best interest.

I get it.

It occurred to me last night that it’s going to be a tough road ahead….and here i was…. worried about lola…

but it’s coming out that i have someone else i need to REALLY worry about.

His name is fin and he’s 4.

Last night the kids were sitting around the dinner table eating of all things…..

no…..

not mac n cheese….

but a lovely lean cuisine…..and it had LOTS and LOTS of veggies…..

because i was thinking the other night that they don’t get enough veggies…

so when i was perusing thru the frozen foods isle at the market…..i saw some

lovely frozen meals with LOTS of veggies.

anyhooooo…….

as soon as i nuked up some FABULOUS dinner……

with lots and lots of edamame and carrots…

i just knew that it was going to be a long night…..because normally it doesn’t take

a full freakin hour to eat…….

then i noticed sweet boobs…

yes…i call my little fin….BOOBs sometimes…

there

i said it

little boobs…big boobs…whatever….

i suppose he might have a complex one day….

but…anyways….

fin had made a note and was handing it around the table…

and on the note….it said….

i pass.

Apparently……the children thought it would be fun to take turns eating

the veggies……

but whoever got the “i pass” card….

didn’t have to eat theirs……

so….round and round went the card…

and no veggies were being eaten….

I then had to call Santa…..

because you realize that all good mothers have his number programed on their phone…

on my phone he is maked as a “favorite”….

but Santa was in the hot tub…..

apparently….

with one of the elves….

at least that is what mrs clause told me….

so then i had to explain the situation with her…

and she then in turn had to talk to fin and lola…

because at this point Mason is rolling his eyes….

which he got a time-out for……

duh……

of course Santa’s real…..

i told him….if he doesn’t want to believe….

then let’s just see what he gets for christmas….

so then he was the first to eat his veggies….

but not lola and fin…..

they started wondering how the heck mrs clause knew

that they were eating nuked veggies….

and that lola just had her hair cut….

duh….

she knows as much as santa……

probably more than santa….

mrs. clause is the BOMB.


…then bryan came home…..

and when bryan comes home…..for some reason…

the kids….

they.eat.their.food.

I sat there for an hour and a half with cold…nuked….vegies…

and hottie husband walks in…..

and they gobble down their food……

saying…

hey dad…gosh…you look nice..

did you have a good day today….

blah….blah…..blah….

so…mom and dad…i completely understand now….

that if in fact the time arrives that i

can send fin to live with you…..

right???

by the way….is there a reason you have not been answering the phone when i call??

xo

{all photo’s were taken on Fin’s first date with his girlfriend…..

and yes….times have changed……they start dating at 4…}
