Let The Party Begin!

T.G.I.F.F.F.E.  (That’s Great, It’s Friday For Freaking Ever!)  Seriously, that’s what it’s going to feel like here in 3 days, when my kids don’t go back to school come this Monday OR the Monday after that!  When the boredom and cabin fever sets in after all of the holiday parties are over and presents unwrapped.  The new and shiny toys will last a few hours and then my youngest will be pulling his best Lurch impression, appearing out of nowhere with his gloomy face and solemn demeanor.  “Mom, can I… have a friend over, go to a friends, anything other than just be here at home without someone to entertain me 24/7, huh?  Can I?  CanIcanIcanIcanI, mom, mom, mom, mommy, mommy, mommy, mother, mother, mother, Lois, Lois,” – oh, sorry got carried away. 🙂

Meanwhile, my oldest – who totally spoiled me rotten and left me utterly defenseless for when my youngest came along, will be curled up with a book somewhere, or a Kindle – or both – and I’ll probably be bugging him.  “Hey you, kid I gave life to, stop being a broody teenager for like FIVE SECONDS and pay attention to me!”

Taking his sweet time, he’ll close the book over and look up at me, nonplussed.  “What, mom?”

“Go entertain your brother.”

(Eye roll, book opens, Mom is back to being ignored.)

*Sigh*  Gotta love the holidays! 😀

  1. Hee hee this made me chuckle! It’s the exact same situation here – one who we have to beg to spend time with us, one who is as I write pacing the room waiting to be taken swimming. Happy days! Good luck 🙂


    1. Thanks Rose Red, I kind of felt like I was echoing some of the same points you made in your earlier post about the holiday break, I’m guessing there are plenty of parents out there experiencing the same things right now. Big smiles! We can get through this! 😀 It’s only two weeks, right? (In kid time that’s like FOREVER) ha!


      1. It’s good to know that I am not the only one! and yes I’m sure there are many of us out there…We can do it 🙂
