People Think The Grass Is Always Greener

I am sure you have heard the saying “the grass is greener on the other side” but I am here to conform that it is not.

In the last week and a half I have been home a TON alone which I thought would be awesome but has been extremely boring. When the kids are home I complain sometimes that they are being a pain because in the moment they are. It starts when I walk into the house from work with Shae and her nonstop sentences that start like this: dad did you know that, dad guess what, dad today I, dad, dad, dad; LOL. Not that I mind because I love her to death but I wish she would stop adding dad to ever single sentence. Then Shaun starts in with his nonstop can I watch TV, can I play Xbox, can I play the iPad, can I play your phone, can I have a snack. Oh my goodness, if he is idle for more than two minutes he starts freaking out.

So like I said I have been home a ton recently alone as Melinda and the kids went to the beach all last week and this past Sunday night into Monday Melinda and Shaun were in NYC, Sabreena was at a friend’s house in Maryland and Shae spent the night at Mom Mom and Pop Pops. So it has been just the dogs and I and I am going to admit I have been bored out of my skull and miss ALL of the kids’ questions and nonsense. I can’t believe I am actually saying that but it’s true. The house had been so quiet without the kids

So now I need to remember the next time the kids are driving me up to wall to appreciate every moment because when they aren’t around I wish they were.

I Disclose
