I have taken a few days off work during the school holidays to spend time with my children. I thought they deserved time as a family to just hang out.
I didn't realize that they don't want to hang out with me
They want to do their own thing
Oh, I do come in handy to drive them here or there
They sort of begrudgingly 'fit me in'. With a sigh
Miss T says she has spent time with me and she needs time with her friends
I sat them down on the first day with offers of theme parks, movies, lunch out...
Nope. Nothing. Zip.
I ended up spending 3 hours sugar soaping the walls upstairs
I have to admit I was sulking a little. Well, a lot really
I knew this would happen but I didn't realize it had happened already. Where was the memo?
So, I've walked the dog every day, read a book, cleaned, organized, rearranged.
I have some nice clean walls.
ciao for now
