I'm sad...

Okay no not really...but here's the thing...I decided to book Friday off this week to spend with the boy (it's spring break here this week). As an afterthought I thought maybe the boyfriend might want to book it off too. So we put our plan in motion today and both our bosses agreed we could have the day off.

My plans were to eat lunch out, then catch a movie (the boy is dying to see Monsters v. Aliens) or maybe head over to the museum to see the cool dinosaur exhibit they have right now. Sounds great, right???

WELLLLLLLLLLL, when I told the boy about what I had planned this is the response I got:

The boy: But mom...Friday is the only day we are allowed to bring our DS to daycare...that is the only day I really wanted to go this week...I need Zane to help me beat that level on my new pokemon game.

Me: Well can't you do that some other Friday?

The boy: Urgh...mom....you know we are ONLY allowed to bring our DS on inservice Fridays and we won't have another day off school after this week for like months....so I HAVE to go on Friday.

Me: Okay...so there is nothing I can say to change your mind then? You want to go to daycare on friday?

The boy: Well...I could go and you could come get me early...

Me: Like you want to go for the morning and I'll pick you up at lunch time?

The boy: Wellllllllllllllll...that might work....

So, I'm leaving it alone for now...I'll still take the day off...afterall I need to prepare for all the houseguests I have coming next week (wow how did it get to be here so fast...I could have swore I still had plenty of time to prepare!). I wanted to purge some closets before my relatives all showed up. Maybe we can do something fun on Saturday...that is if the boy doesn't have other plans *insert eye roll here*

Oh, doesn't it just suck when they atart to grow up and don't want to do the fun stuff you plan?! My boys do it to me all the time, and sometimes it's sad, cus it's like you take the time to think of something special and they just don't care.

Maybe you and your guy could go out for a nice breakfast or early lunch together before you pick uo the boy.

lol! Those days will make me sad :( Look at it this way, you can have your morning to yourself, get your cleaning underway and then head to lunch and a movie with your 2 favorite boys! :)

Enjoy some time to yourself!

kids are so unappreciative. I'd totally want my mom to convince me to take a day off of work to go to a dinosaur museum!
