While the Cat's Away

The mice will play.

This will include, but will not be limited to, viewing 1.5 movies (They had to leave Space Chimps before the end because of bad guys being mean to the chimps; enjoyed Kung Fu Panda and new moves were learned. Everything is now AWESOME too.), eating out almost every meal, a trip to Best Buy, throwing rocks in the water, swimming, a long bike ride, sharing a huge tub of movie theater popcorn and the purchase of her very own new plant.

What struck me as hilarious though, was the fact that when I walked in the door at 10:30ish PM, Scott was absolutely bursting to have adult conversation. My bags were barely set down and he was talking a mile a minute. Having had 1.5 days away with my girlfriends, I was almost talked out, but I complied. In the past I have tried to explain to him how important it is for him to listen to me and talk to me when he comes home from work, after I have had a full day of kid talk. He has never really understood. Now he does.



  1. it looks like they had an AWESOME time! :) sometimes it really is only experience that will teach those with the y chromosome. :)

  2. That picture of your daughter is BEAUTIFUL! I love that your husband was able to walk in your shoes for a while, but it also sounds like he did a pretty good job.

  3. Thanks Aranne! I really appreciate him taking care of A. (he even took half a day off from work) so I could get away with my girlfriends. He did do a good job and they had lots of fun too.

  4. She is so stinkin' beautiful! I hate that I've missed out on watching her grow with you. I'm sure you are a great mom! :)
