the au pair has a wicked sense of humor

this happened friday night and i have been dying to blog it all weekend...

so late friday, kids are all home, i am getting dinner ready, hubby is running late from work.

kids, all eight of them (okay, so it's really only three - but it feels like EIGHT!) were running through the house playing, screaming, yelling, whooping and hollering at the TOP of their lungs. Having a ball - being relatively nice to each other - but louder than a rock concert on acid.

i walk over, grab a beer out of the fridge, pop the top, take a long draw, turn to the the au pair, nod my head toward the melee and tell her...
"my kids make me drink beer"

in her delightful german accent she tells me, "i think it should be whiskey."

we've got a live one!

"Cheers!" or as we say in Mexico, "Salud!"

Your blog today made me smile. Your kids sound happy, as do you!

Glad you had a good weekend.

That's great!
Just this weekend, I was telling Mag that she's going to drive me to drink. She asked if she should put her shoes back on & wait in the car.
