Husbandrinka has been away in Paris all week, so I’ve been spending more time than ever with my kids. Usually he gets up to oversee breakfast so I can devote myself to watching The Today Show, but this week it fell on me.
And it’s a good thing that it did too, because I got some great blog fodder, I mean, quality time with my kids. It’s almost worth missing a week of Today!
Here are the best snippets from my week!
13 year old daughter: You keep telling me what to do. It’s really hard to live like that.
Marinka: I..I just asked you to make your bed.
13 year old: It’s like your rules never end.
Marinka: You think you have it pretty rough, don’t you?
13 year old: I know some people have it worse than I do. But they live in other countries, with famine.
Marinka: Let me know where you’re going after school today, please. You can text me when you decide.
13 year old daughter: OMG, I have absolutely no FREEDOM!
Marinka: You seem to be talking a lot about freedom lately.
13 year old: Sorry, mommy, I just finished reading 1984.
10 year old Young Ladrinka, eating toast for breakfast: You know, toast is basically just bread and butter.
Marinka: Shouldn’t you brush your hair before you go to school?
13 year old daughter: My God, this totalitarian family!
Little League coach: You know what the Yankees do, right?
Young Ladrinka: Steroids?
It’s been a long week, but I wouldn’t have traded a second of it away.
Hope you had a nice week an enjoy the weekend.
