We're off to Detroit this morning to catch the 1:00 p.m. game against the Carolina Panthers "blah". I don't know how Fred and Gloria know we're going but every time we get up and get ready to go to a Lions game they sense that we are about to leave them for the day. Then the guilt trip starts.
"Don't do it Momma." "Don't leave us again." Yes, then the promises come. Gloria says she won't eat poop anymore and Freddie, well there's just to many promises to mention as the list would go on forever!
But I am tough. I do not cave in to them pulling at my heartstrings. It is my day away from the kids....and yes I will miss them, but I will also enjoy every minute of it!
So they try to block the door.
They'll enjoy some quality time when their sister Brandi (check out her blog at YeeWittleThings) comes over to babysit them. They just don't know it yet.
As for me, I've painted my nails blue, am putting on my game face and saying my prayer. "Dear Lord, please let the Lions whomp the Panthers butt!!"
