Bring me back my marbles!

Monday was a holiday here in our lovely part of the world… Family Day. And we had a whole lot of family over for the weekend. It was great! My kids loved playing with their cousins. My teensy toddler nephew discovered the marbles for the Hungry Hippo game and spent all weekend walking around with them clutched in his tiny fist.

I’m pretty sure he took my marbles home with him because that’s the only explanation for my week. Tuesday morning I dropped my son off at his school, then drove my daughter to her daycare… actually, I drove my daughter right past her daycare and almost all the way to my office. I would have made it to work except for a little voice that floated up from behind me in the van that asked, “Mommy, why are we going the wrong way?”

When I went home from work I forgot my phone, my precious phone, on my desk. I hate forgetting my phone. We don’t have a home phone line. I felt like I was missing calls all evening. Although to be honest, I hardly ever get calls. But if I had gotten a call, it would have been Tuesday night.

Last night when I realized that I had not supplies for the kids to make Valentines cards for their classmates, I hopped in the van to go to the dollar store. I parked in front of the store and went to grab my purse. Then I realized… it was still at home.

And that is why today I will take my lunch break to go pick up pre-made Valentines cards so that I don’t have to spend all evening pretending to be crafty.

I really need those marbles back little dude!

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home. I love Mondays because I can return to the world of adults, go to the bathroom alone and have nearly uninterrupted conversations with others.

  1. Ah crap, I have to get valentines day cards for all their little classmates. Thanks a lot, now I have to go out. 🙂
    Your nephew very well may have taken my marbles as well. And you have family day? That is so awesome. Way better than National squirrel appreciation week (yes, that’s actually a thing.)

    • Head’s up… when you leave your valentine card shopping until your lunch break the day before, you won’t be able to find any. I ended up going to a photo copy shop and buying red and pink paper. Now I have to go be crafty and shit. Way to go Valentines for making parents everywhere lose their shit!

    haha- at least your wee one was on the ball as a navigator…and wasn’t sleeping lest she be forgotten in the car outside your work 🙂
