Are your parents home?

I spent the weekend with the triplets and finn, was quite an uneventful weekend. The boys seem to behave best when at home entertaining themselves so we spent almost the whole weekend at their house. On Saturday we ventured out to visit my pup and then I took them to see Aliens in the Attic, my sister came along in case I needed support. It was a cute movie, my sis and got the giggles at one point...laughing at some goofy part in the movie followed by uncontrollable laughter...tears rolling down our cheeks. No, the movie was not that funny, ha! If anyone happened to have seen that movie over the weekend my sis and I started laughing over the whole Ricky being controlled by that alien little device, lol!! Overall, good entertainment...the boys sat through the whole movie without a peep. They were all armed with slushies, candy and popcorn.

Friday night highlights.....

I'm making the boys a fancy dinner, pressing the bake button on the oven and setting it to 425, throwing in a frozen pizza. The door bell rings, I knew the boys were in the basement making a "haunted house" for me to walk through (where they grab me in the dark and try to pull my pants off...little stinker butts) and are ignoring the doorbell. I go to the back door first (the door little kids always come to) and no one was there, run across the house to the front door (these people live in a massive home) and I open the door to 2 guys that look to be around my age (26).

Conversation proceeds:

Guy 1 - "Are your parents home"

Me - "ugh.....no, my parents are probably at their own home"
Guy 1 - "So are you the home owner"
Me - "no"
Guy 1 - "and the parents really are not here and you're not in high school"
Me - "no, really! i'm 26"
Guy 1 - "oh, there are kids in high school that live here....correct?!?"
Me - "nope"
Guy 1 - "Well I work for School District 19... and we need to talk to parents with high school students"
Me - "There are only kids here in elementary school and their parents are not here right now"
Guy 1 - "ok, thanks"
Guy 2 - hanging his head with a smirk trying not to laugh the entire time!


Second experience from Friday night.....

Finn yells to me while running toward the bathroom, I have to go potty.....number 2......and I need you to wipe my butt!!

Ugh....seriously!?! (literally, a stinker butt) He is 5!! Goes to preschool! I asked him if is preschool teachers wipe his butt and what his plan is for kindergarten since he starts in 2 weeks, full days. He said he really can wipe his butt but he just doesn't want to. I told him I really didn't want to wipe it either. He said ok and he grabbed the toilet paper and managed to wipe himself. Hallelujah, saved! He did have a bath that night too!

So that was my entertaining weekend. I got done watching the kiddos around noon, grocery shopped, laid outside with my mom and sis for a little while and spent the evening at my parent's house as well for our family dinner night. I played with my nephew most of the time who is always a handful. Love that little guy to pieces!

Having a 3 day weekend is great even though I did spend almost the whole thing "working", now back to real life....work is insanely busy right now!

Haha love those phone calls!

Sunshinemeg said...

Too cute! You totally caught him on not wanting to wipe his booty. My nephew told me a while back he has a boo boo and asked if I would kiss it. Of course, I said yes and he then informed me it was on his butt...

Kids are adorable.

C said...

Haha! sounds like an interesting weekend! Are you all ready to be a mom yourself now?? ;)

Maryellen said...

That was a funny weekend. I'm happy Finn manned up and took care of the situation himself. Your conversation with him about it was really funny!

Taylor K said...

I've totally had that happen to me while I was at home with no make up on. I'm like, hmmm, actually, I OWN this home. All by my big girl self. It also happens to me on the phone. People have even asked me on business calls, "How old are you?" So embarassing!

Lucy Marie said...

hehe I laughed when I read the part about the guys asking you if your parents were home. That's definitely something that would happen to me.

RCaitlin said...

Haha sounds like a great weekend. Weird about the high school kids and the parents. What was that all about lol?

mrosev14 said...

Sounds like a really exciting weekend, lol. Yeah, I don't wipe butts if you aren't in diapers. Yuck, you're a big boy--do it yourself!

Don't worry about being called a high school student, there are still times when I get carded to buy cough syrup. Whatever, lol.

OMG OMG OMG!!! i bet that was for the same program these two guys kept coming to my house and bugging us about! they came 3 days in a row asking for the parents and if we were in high school(and the first 2 times my brother just told them to come back later..and the 3rd, i told them we werent interested in whatever they were selling)...and then they come back the next day at 9:00 PM!!!!!..and of course, my parents were home. turns out they were selling some kind of workbooks for science or something (although, they had some wierd accents and my dad thought they were trying to sell foreign exchange students lol)! and apparently we were the hardest people to get ahold of in the entire town. i bet it was for something similar!

thats so funny!

Ugh, as a toddler/preschool teacher I have wiped so many butts I cannot begin to count. I am almost immune to the gross-ness of it. Almost....
