“Honey, um, can you take the baby? I think she just delivered a package.”
It’s a practice you usually only resort to the morning of laundry day. Sometimes, you’re just out of clean clothes for the kids and you just didn’t anticipate that there wouldn’t be anything left to throw on them for summer camp that day. That is when you hold your head high and do the “hamper rummage”
So I figured out the reason Caitlin was wailing was that Aidan was actually pinching her in the back of her neck. Well, yeah. You know he stopped “real quick” when I shot him the Rear View Mirror Evil Eye!
“Yup, so I just couldn’t take her whining for that cracker any longer and had to pull a “One arm Mommy” and get it for her off the floor. Oh, you bet I gave it back to her. It was the last one in the pack. We were almost home.”
