Day Without Mom

My family just picked me up from work.
We are now headed to hang out with a group of great friends around a bonfire….

ME: “So how was your day alone with 4 kids?”

Kevin: ๐Ÿ‘€ “Well…..”

ME: ๐Ÿ‘€

KEVIN: ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€

:::::we pulled out onto Augusta Highway before he continued:::::

KEVIN: “Well….
Your bamboo is on the floor.
The rocks from the plants are scattered everywhere.
Jack decided to fill cups with sand….and stored them in the freezer.
Caleb stood on Maggie’s bellie.
Juli found a marker. Again. You can imagine how that went.
She also got into your makeup.
They poured water all over Caleb’s bed.
Jack spilled orange juice everywhere. God bless his heart.
And we had two people knock on the door to ask where we got our leg lamp from.
…and how was YOUR day?”


KEVIN: “You’re welcome.”
