Party Pooper

ME: We’re going to drop you off at a friend’s tonight to eat dinner and go to bed.
J (6): You mean we’re just going to eat dinner and then go to bed?
Me: Yep.
J: But then we don’t have a chance to play!
Me: Well, you’re not going over there to play this time. You’re going so Mom and Dad get a chance to play. You know, you can’t have *all* the fun. Mom and Dad like to have fun too.
J: You have fun.
Me: Oh really? When?
J: Well, probably when we go to bed at night.
M: Not so much, by that time we’re exhausted from taking care of a million kids all day.
J: Oh yeah, then why are you going out at night? Won’t you be exhausted? Huh?

    John is astonished to have just realized that Chris and I stay up later than the kids. Mary has figured it out too and she doesn’t like it.

      ahahahaha that is so funny how he didn’t realize that! All my kids have known for ever which may be why they REALLY REALLY don’t want to go to bed – all those sanguines terrified they’ll miss some fun! 😀
