My Facebook feed is littered with “Spring Break is over *sad face*” statuses and here I sit, the horrible mother who is almost jumping up and down with glee, smiling from ear to ear, happy to have my home back to myself for 8 hours a day once again. I can get dishes and laundry done, the floors vacuumed and work accomplished without having to break up a minion argument or constantly tend to their various and unending needs. Oh, and keep all the love and attention from the dog to myself.
I love them. I do. And I had fun with the minions over the break, but their break is over and mine begins again.
YES, YES and more YES.
Two random thoughts on a Monday:
It’s incredibly stupid to have CRCT Tests the very day that children resume school after Spring Break. They’ve been out of school for a week, some have stayed up late almost every night and are getting back into the swing of things, most haven’t even cracked a book since the Friday that school let out for Spring Break and now they want them to come back fresh and ready to ace a test? It’s a good thing my kids like to read and write, otherwise I think they’d be screwed.
Mr. Butter looked a lot like a super-hero when I needed him this weekend.
I can prove it:
His only weaknesses? A hot skillet (or in this case, griddle) and a stack of pancakes.
Now that I think about it, Mr. Butter isn’t so much a superhero as he is an unfortunate victim of recipes. But he has his defenses. Even after he’s been consumed, he works to pay back the evil villain who overcame him by clogging their arteries and shooting their LDL Cholesterol levels up to magnificent heights. Heart attack anyone?
I took one look at those pancakes and answered that question with a genuine “yes, please.” Turns out Mr. Butter isn’t the only one with a weakness.
