I would be remiss if I failed to say Happy Anniversary to Mr. Serious. 8 years for us!
In fact, I failed to say it this morning when I left the house and went to get an oil change…then I logged onto facebook and saw a reminder that today is our anniversary. Whoops. In my defense, he didn’t wish me a happy anniversary, either. And, we went out for dinner to celebrate at the beginning of the month. I guess this is what happens with you have two kids and one on the way and it’s just a couple days before Christmas. Pretty sure there isn’t a Lexus parked in our driveway as a surprise, either.
But, I did get a surprise of much different proportions. Mr. Serious and the girls put up some Christmas lights this weekend. They were outside for a while and seemed like they were having a good time. (Really, in and out, in and out..mommy I’m hungry….mommy I’m thirsty…) but they really were quite joyful. And, they only put their freezing cold hands on me one time.
As I was getting dinner ready, #2 came in and said “mommy, we made a surprise for you!” and she was SOOOO excited. I said “a surprise?” “Yes, mommy, a surprise outside.”
I was considering getting outside to look when she said “mommy, your surprise is a puppy!” (This is when daddy mumbles, “you aren’t very good at keeping a secret!”)
It hit me at that moment. I knew exactly what my “surprise” was/is.
I knew it wasn’t a real puppy (thank goodness, because that’s right up there with buying a car without talking it over with me).
I knew this puppy had been seen once before. I asked that we never see it again. It’s not me. I’m not into “puppies” at all.
But, geez-louise…if they are this happy about my “puppy surprise”, then I guess Snoopy can stay for just a little bit longer.
