Look over here Moo moo!

A morning all to myself....well kind of

Monday my Husband was kind enough to take the girls to the gym with him, and the girls were kind enough to go. So a carefree morning of shopping awaited...kind of.

On the way to my first store, Hobby Lobby(by the way the BEST home decor/ knickknack place in the world) I only checked the back seat....hmm fifty times. And I almost made it into the store without going back to the car to make sure I didn't somehow manage to imagine the whole "children free morning scenario" and leaving them in the car.

I know what everyone is thinking, cuckoo( yay I know) and you need to get out more without the children. Working on it.

After I stopped checking for children, and checking my cell phone I realized this is very necessary! The best part was being greeted at the door with their little tails wagging!

The three year old going on sixteen is getting very sassy these days! An all too common phrase she uses is " leave me alone!" Usually accompanied by "no" and "I'm going to my room!"

So yesterday I left her alone, and let her go to her room as she requested. When she didn't come back downstairs for awhile I got suspicious, and went to check...this is what I found...

...apparently Miss sassy got sleepy while pretending to be a ladybug preparing a meal? None the less I did not look a gift nap in the mouth, and enjoyed my two hours of freedom!

You might be as old as me

You might be as old as me if....

The walls in your room were covered from floor to ceiling in Duran Duran posters.

You contemplated wearing a safety pin as an earring.

The barbie dream house was the best Christmas present you've received to date.

You played Pac man, Donkey Kong, and Pit Fall until you lost feeling in your hands.

Saturday mornings meant cartoons.

You saw E.T. in the theater, the first time.

Madonna's performance of "Like a virgin" on MTV's music awards left your parents speechless.

Everyone wanted to live in the "Valley" and say things like "totally tubular" and "bitchin".

The movie "Purple Rain" was a phenomenon.

Dressing up as Prince for Halloween was totally tubular.

You chose what cereal to buy based on the free toy inside.

You almost had yourself convinced you could moonwalk.

And last but not least....

Michael Jackson was cool.

Showdown at Chick fil A

It was the best of times at the Chick fil a play area, it was the worst of times at the Chick fil a play area.

The events you are about read actually took place, names have been changed to protect the guilty.

11:45 "Poopy head" and I walk into one Chick fil a restaurant for an enjoyable lunch with friends.

11:50 "lucky to still be growing" notices a play scape, and rushes off to play.

11:51- 11: 57 Mommy and her adult friend exchange calm, rational conversation.

12:00 Food arrives and Mommy tries to retrieve "cranky pants".

12: 05 "Booger face" throws herself to the ground claiming she doesn't want to eat!

12:10-12:25 Children eating, and jovial, sane adult conversation is allowed to continue.

12:26 Children return to the beloved play scape.

1:00 Mommy tries to explain to " The girl that was supposed to go to Disneyland in December, but might not be now" that it's time to leave.

We did eventually leave Chick fil a after many "full body on the ground tantrums", crying, screaming, hitting, many looks of shock, even more looks of pity. I know with time, and maybe some Prozac we will leave the house again one day.
