…but yesterday when Boy #3 was home with Husband and Boy #1, who was sick, this is what he told Husband:
“All I want for Christmas is for Mommy to put clothes on me.”
Seriously?! Is it MY fault he was still in his underwear at 6:00 p.m. when I got home?
So I grabbed some clothes for him, gave him a hug, and said, “I’m sorry! Were you cold all day?”
And teary-eyed, he replied, “Yeah. I wanted clothes but you weren’t here.”
So when I asked Husband in my
accustatory loving tone why HE hadn’t put clothes on our son, he informed me that he tried and was told, “No, only Mommy can do it!”
Well, at least Boy #3’s already gotten his Christmas wish.
My Christmas wish?
That the state doesn’t take my children away!
