    Default i cant be botherd tonight.

    im on my 3rd night on my own. i am deleriously exhausted. DH is at work functions for end of year. He is staying in a motel in melbourne.
    He gets breakfasts, lunches and dinners all catered for....sits at a few meetings then meets up with work collegues for drinks of an evening/night.
    basically i am jealous. yes, he has earned this time off from tha family and worked like a ***** all year long. but so have i. i just didnt get paid for it.

    Anyways, ontop of doing all the christmas shopping, packing and organising for family xmas get together, managing a household and stimulating a 11mth old and an almost 3yr old.... im stufffed, tonight, ive let my 3yr old run wild while i sit on the couch and ignore her and drink beer. I had put her to bed, but alas.
    She is currently running laps from her room at the other end of the house to the lounge where i am. With the odd somersault.
    I then heard her open the slinding door the the deck area and some splashing around.....i check on her and yep....shes in the shell pool, in her pj's.
    DH happens to text me right then and ask how are the kids. So i reply:

    "DS went to bed at 6pm after crying non stop from 4pm.
    DD is currently in the pool in her pjs and i am drinking beer and watchin motorway patrol". The kids are fine.

    eh.

    Sorry but I've got to admit your entire thread had me giggling. It certainly puts DS's half hour pre-bedtime tantrum into perspective!

    Carry on my wayward sloth!

    it took him ages to reply. i think he was a bit stunned.
    An hr later he asked if she was in bed yet.
    i said yes to put his mind at ease.
    She is actually laying naked beside me watching breaking bad.
    I dont have the energy to move myself let alone dress her and put her to bed knowing she will get straight back up again.

    *cracks another beer*
