Always Thinking Ahead

Last week my boys had thrown me over the edge. It was the incessant bickering. So I sent the younger two to their rooms and as they left I yelled after them, ‘And you can’t come out until your father comes home! I am DONE! Don’t even THINK of asking!”

It was an hour later when he walked in the door and I heard the pitter patter of little feet as the boys quietly came out of their rooms to see if it ‘was safe’.

This morning as we were pulling out to go to school, I noticed my husband had his suit coat in his hands and was hanging it in the back of my car. I rolled down the window and said, “Oh wait. You have study club tonight, right? You’ll be home late?”

He answered, ‘Yeah, I’ll be home around 9… probably 10.”

As I rolled up the window, I heard Bones say, ““Whew, we surely don’t want to have to go to our rooms until Dad gets home tonight!” Heh heh heh!

Until 10 minutes before they were to go to bed.

And I called my husband at one point to make sure I wasn't holding dinner for him. I had emailed him the story so he knew what Bones had said. Bones asked to talk to him on the phone and I heard his father say, "Hey. I'm getting home late. You better be good or you'll be in your room a LONG time!" Bones face had a look of utter amazement and when we hung up he said, 'Do you know what Dad said to me?!" Like his Dad had read his mind. It was really funny.
