I would never use my vehicle as a babysitter. Nope! I would never send my kids to go get their seat belts on (we park in the garage) even though it's not quite time to go! I mean, having them secure in one place while I run around getting all the last minute items together? No way! This does not sometimes go awry. For example, it never takes longer than I think it will. And they never get snarky at each other while couped up in the van unsupervised! I've never made them all get back out of the van to get spankings, only to send them right back into the van. Nope! Not my perfectly behaved children. :o)
On Saturday, DaddyMan did not offer to let me have some time to myself. I did not jump on the idea and then plan on leaving as soon as I got dinner started in the crockpot. Upon deciding this was a ridiculous idea, I did not proceed to introduce DaddyMan to my beloved crockpot. When I left, the microwave was not beeping, One was not talking back, Two was not whining, and Three was definitely not mere nano-seconds away from eating some dog food! I did not proceed to leave without even a second thought! Nope! And I certainly did not get a little tickle of -dare I say it?- joy from leaving DaddyMan with this crazy scene! I mean, I do it everyday. I know how crazy it can get. I would never choose for DaddyMan to have to deal with such craziness. Especially not with the thought in my mind that he might be more compassionate if he really got the worst of it.... No way! Not me!
