Little Munchkin was screaming, "Mommiiiiiie!!! He's got a bug in his mouuuuuth!!!" Then she would clap her hand over her mouth and giggle. Little Buddy laughed with his mouth open wide enough that I could see what he had, then he ran away and tried to dodge me so I couldn't get it from him. Don't worry. He didn't actually eat it and it's not poisonous (I checked). Anyway, being alone with kiddos doesn't usually bother me except for things like what happened yesterday. I went up to a college football game with my parents. We all went to the same University, including Hubby. I took the kiddos and it was a little hot and rained a little, but the kids loved seeing all the people. Everything was going swimmingly until we ran into a family friend on our way to get some food.
"Where is Hubby?" she asks.
"He has to work today," I say. I suddenly notice the look of pity in her eye. She doesn't believe me! I guess she thinks he's sitting at home by himself?
I launch into an extensive explanation of the surgery he is performing and I reach up to swat away one of the thousands of bugs that keep bothering me. Crap! I'm not wearing my ring! I've been doing these stupid pull-ups for Crossfit and they really bother my hands so I have to take my rings off. I forgot to put them back on! Now she probably thinks I'm either not actually married or that I'm separated! I guess this is a sign that I should stop doing pull-ups. I hate them anyway.
She hurries away akwardly and I find myself trying to run after her. However, it doesn't go well because I've got the kids by myself at this point and they are bouncing all around in the grass in their little cars. I stop and smile at the kids.
"Mommy, can we walk around a little more?" Little Munchkin asks. "This is fun!"
