Well, my darling husband is in Nigeria for the next 22 days.
I am going to practice this single mother head of household thing again!!
Last time he was gone for over 4 months. This time, I put my foot down. I made him wait until his ducks were in a row before he could leave.
Because once he is there it is a sit and wait kinda game.
Plus, he gets homesick so quick that it is even worse than if he is here and driving me crazy.
I have to admit that the first few days are great. My house runs like clockwork.
I run a tight ship. I am in charge it is a benevolent dictatorship. They don't have to like it, they just have to do it.
I have a rule in my house, I learned it from my parents, you can be mad, just pick up your toys because it is such a waste of energy to be mad and put it to go use.
You can disagree with me, but I don't want to hear it. Just clean up your room.
You can cry until you have no more tears, just get in the bathtub and take a bath, because dirt bumps are bad and we don't want any dirt bumps in this house.
You can beg until you are blue in the face, but after they are done, they must put their dishes in the sink.
Now, I have gotten the kids trained. Training my husband would make my life so much easier.
Since he is gone for the month, I will have these little buggers ship shape so that when he gets back, he will undoubtedly mess up our two step and be the Daddy that the kids love and just throw a monkey wrench into my mix.
So now to put them down for a nap because we have to go plant blueberry trees at my Aunt Jean's house this afternoon.
My theory is this...
(mess made by kids)3 * (amount of time it takes to make the mess in seconds) =
GOOD TIME HAD BY ALL!!!
until we meet again,
