Every Mother's Day my husband leaves me to cook, clean, and provide love to our two children while he spends the day visiting with his step-mother and mother enjoying a fun, re-energizing day. Every Father'sDay he has always left to go take his dad out to an extended lunch, then takes his step-dad to drinks.
NOT THIS YEAR BUDDY! I've wised up.
We went to brunch as a family this morning. When he was ready to leave, I handed him the kid's bag so they could go spend the day with him (it is Father'sDay) and swim at grandma's. I packed another bag because my other MIL is keeping them over night (so I can go to the dentist alone tomorrow). I don't think he knew what hit him.
, I cleaned, did laundry, mopped...now I am relaxing on the porch drinking an adult beverage and playing on the computer....alone... Father'sDay just may be my new favorite holiday.
