My son very politely, but firmly asked me to leave my daughter’s room so that they could have a party…without me.
I was suspicious about his motives, especially after he reassured that “they weren’t going to do anything bad" and suggested that I "go have fun by myself.”
But I decided to play along and see what happened. Needless to say, I may have left the room, but I’m keeping both ears wide open.
So far, they just both singing loudly to a CD and dancing together.
It's been almost 20 minutes.
This is wonderful.
But this is also a bit awful…so much fun being had without me.
I’m very glad my kiddos get along pretty well (at least 80% of the time), but I wasn’t quite ready to be dethroned already.
Guess I should go finish up dinner and fold the laundry.
Or… I could listen to my son and find something fun to do (within ear shot of course.) Maybe I will even find more time to blog if my kids continue spending time in their rooms without me!
I think once I get used to this turn of events, I just might just like it!
Have a great day!
