I have never spent a night away from my children. Not a single one. Now that I’ve got this flashy new job I will occasionally take trips away and the first one is next month. I’m going to Hawaii!
We told the children over dinner that I will be going to Hawaii for a week and that Daddy will look after them. Elizabeth responded with, “Daddy and who else?”. Daniel asked me, “Will you wear a grass dress with no underpants?”. Then he added, “What happens if someone asks you to marry them?”.
We finished dinner and discovered we’d run out of the usual desserts – ice blocks – so I suggested porridge with maple syrup as an alternative dessert to Daniel. He looked suspicious and asked, “Is porridge healthy?”. I said, “Not when it’s got lots of maple syrup on it”. He seemed satisfied with that answer and had porridge for dessert 🙂
