This past week

Had my kids with me this past week, and have them for two straight weeks in July, and then one more week in August. One of the weeks in July, I am taking some vacation time.

My goodness those guys can get on each others nerves. They will start arguing over the stupidest thing and just wont quit. I am like, "All right, you both made your point, now be done with it." Then they can turn around and be Angels. One day they completely cleaned the apartment and also bought some flowers for the living room. They each talked about what the other one did. Hunter was like: "Chase did the dishes" Chase was all: "Hunter took out the trash"
Then they can play on Web -kins together for hours, just laughing and giggling and playing that silly game, until suddenly, My daughter will be done with it and My Son will still want to continue playing. then they argue about whether or not she should continue playing and the "I HATE YOU" language will get thrown out there.
My goodness ... And my daughter hates it when my son wears his sandals. -- She is all: "You are such a DORK with those sandals" . And my son is like, "I'm not a dork" and then "Yes you are" and then "No I'm not" and it just wont stop. It's like a record with a scratch on it, until I go and re-set that needle on them. "PLEASE JUST DROP IT YOU TWO!"
Then the procrastination about going to bed, and when they do finally go to bed they still talk and laugh and needle each other and I am at my wits end with it....PLEASE SHUT UP AND GO TO SLEEP YOU GUYS!!!!. -
It was a good week though. We rode bikes, played catch at the park, watched some movies, went to adventure Island and also the beach, and we ate some Five Guys Burgers and Fries which is a damn fine treat, and something I try not to do to much of lately while I am losing all this weight in my belly.

Sounds like good times. I just had my kids for two weeks. It was great. I'm not sure they'd agree with that though. I think they were bored except for on the weekends.

Minnow -- One of the best things about being the every third weekend parent is they associate you with "FUN" and then when you get them during the summer for an extended period of time and you still have to work some, they lose some of that association. -- Face it, as part time parents we get the raw deal and the only good part about it is that they get brainwashed a little bit into thinking how cool it is to spend time with their dads because he does fun stuff. Honestly it would be better if I just had the same School year weekend schedule during the summer in the short term, but long term I think its good overall having the time in the summer......
