I had SUCH a good time today!! Went to Rachel's for a Blog/Flylady/Memorial day picnic. There were about a dozen kids running around in and out of the pool, swingset, and mudpit. YES MUDPIT!!! It started out as a dirt pile and ended up as a mud wallow-- the kids were COVERED and none of us had a camera -- by far the best was Chaotic Mom's oldest son -- sans cochlear implant and COVERED in mud. LOL! He just grinned a me (when I got his attention - he's deaf if you didn't pick that up) and said - "It's not too bad" HA! His winning grin was just about all that wasn't covered! The kids had an absolute blast.

Us Mommies had a good time too - I loved being able to hang out with my friends and talk about things other than Dora, school, and the sandbox. I can't tell you all how fun it was. And I only had a little wine - so this isn't a drunk "I love you man!" moment... ;-)

K- we meant what we said - REALLY - I know you don't know some of us all that well, but really, feel free to unload on one or all of us - it helps having someone you can go to in person to talk to, who will NOT judge you, your kids or your parenting. But really see the doc too -- All the other kids are doin it!

Poor DH is upstairs laying down in a dark room watching Stargate Atlantis. He developed a headache at Rachel's and actually fell asleep! He was embarrassed about that, but you know it was bad because he let me drive home. I don't know why - but whenever we go somewhere as a couple, Brian drives. I know we are not the only couple that works like this - so you all know it must have been pretty bad. Poor guy, I don't even think he got any of the ribs. :-(

Well, back to reality tomorrow..... Sigh - I need a nanny and a maid....

I think it is a guy thing. DH always drives when we go somewhere together unless he has a migraine. And actually he even drives sometimes with a migraine if he thinks I won't notice. HA!!! Like I wouldn't notice, I am generally a basketcase in the car WITHOUT him driving erratically.
