This week, I developed a master plan that will allow us to go on another big vacation. It involves convincing my mother that my kids are actually really easy to watch. This way, when I want to plan my next trip, she will have no problem wanting to babysit them. It's genius, I know.
Tonight I began stage 1 of my master plan: Subtle Suggestions.
I called her tonight and casually mentioned how easy it is to do things with Charlie and Luke without help from another adult. Consequently, during those 5 minutes that I was on the phone with her, the following happened -
Charlie intentionally hit Luke in the head with a shower squeegee.
Luke locked himself in the bathroom and got water everywhere.
Charlie hit the computer keyboard so hard that it messed up the desktop.
Charlie threw a temper tantrum when I took him away from the computer.
I didn't think much of it until my mom pointed out that they must not be as angelic as I claimed because she could hear me banging on the bathroom door. Agh! Foiled! Next time I will call her when they are asleep.
Seriously, though, look at these sweet boys. You really think they'd be that difficult?
