My niece so graciously offered to babysit and sent me and dad off tonight for our wedding anniversary, which happens to be tomorrow. (I told ya it was a busy month!)
So after we go she allows certain children, namely Chase and Chance, as well as Kat, to go outside and play. They were instructed to "stay in the yard." WELL...... she is obviously too trusting because not only did the boys take off, they took Kat, as well as the dog.
They claimed- after returning 45 minutes and a near heart attack (our poor niece) later, they were "walking the dog." Now, this would be a super excuse, IF the dog LIKED them and wanted to be walked by them. As it is, they have no love lost of my tiny little fluff ball and do not consider him a "real" dog so they torment him more often than not. They do not have any desire to "walk the dog" any other time, as well as me telling them to "never take the dog again for a walk."
Tommy really only prefers ME to take him out at any given time. A little "prince like" but that's my Tommy for ya. I keep telling him when he refuses to go out on rainy days he does NOT belong to Par*s Hilton and needs to get over it, already.
Beyond the boys' disappearing act --the MOST aggravating thing about this was they knew they did something wrong and yet Chase and Chance sat there and LAUGHED when being scolded.
They have done this to me before, numerous times, as well as saying "it's okay" when it clearly is NOT okay. Quite frankly, it makes me feel like slapping the grins right off their faces, grounding them for life-- I guess you get my drift. It's incredibly annoying and they have been told this is NOT appropriate behavior but it continues. So any ideas, my trusty readers?
Luckily Debbie did not call us, we enjoyed our dinner out, then went in search of a t-shirt, hat and letters to create a baseball outfit for Camden. He has a presentation this week and he picked a character that requires a uniform and it's someone from ages ago that we couldn't find a real jersey for the dude if we wanted to. So we get to be creative, of course we do. Camden had no understanding how difficult the outfit would be to make up. Gotta love those innocent 10 year old boys and their ideas.
We guess Debbie will know better than to babysit for us again, man, there goes the only crazy- oops I mean, wonderful person who was willing to even TRY babysitting our hooligans. And now they've messed that up. To think, we only let her with half the crew, too, Camden and Chloe were at friends houses!
We really are stuck with these hooligans for good, for always, thick and thin, every day 24/7, sniff, sniff...... I hear our date night swirling their way right down the toilet. Honestly I can't believe we can't leave 15 and 14 year olds, and they not pull this crap. And they look so innocent and sweet in their pictures, don't they? Guess they act like ours so we gotta claim 'em. OIY.
