Momma Kiss: Grand gestures

Momma Kiss

If momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!

Grand gestures

I haven't been home for bedtime all week.

Got a new situation at work. Co-worker got promoted, is now my boss, The Douchenozzle is a WAY different manager than my old boss (who's older and a softie and has kids and is a Christian! God Fearing!)

Anyway.

My schedule has changed, for the worse, and I've been working a TON. Mr. Kiss has been picking up the kids, making dinner, doing bedtime, tucking in, doing all that stuff Momma's supposed to do.

Don't get me wrong, he's great at it. But I HATE missing it for so many days in a row.

To make it up to my kids?

I'm taking them to a super fun show on Friday. I am not above bribery or grand gestures to make them think their Momma rocks, no matter how much she's away from home.

Best part? I didn't even have to think very hard about what to do. Hell Yah! I won these supercalifragilistic tickets to see the Toy Story dudes at Disney on Ice. My girl A is going to come with us. I'm going to buy those boys cotton candy and popcorn and juice and whateverthehellelsetheywant!

Why?

Because I have mom guilt.

Whatever.

We're going to have a blast. And we're going to stay at A's house afterward. And she's making them a killer breakfast in the morning. And when I drop them off and go right back to work on Saturday, I'll know they'll be remembering our super fun time at the "Party" the night before.

I win over Dada.

That's all.

No, Wait, That's not all! I forgot to tell ya who I won the tickets from: SarahViz from the Trenches of Mommyhood. AND, I get to meet her (hoping her kids aren't too sick to go).

Thanks love, I needed this win ;)

Don't get carried away and try your hand at a triple salchow to impress the boys with your ice skating skillz. Sounds like such a fun night. You totally deserve it.

Have a lovely, amazing time! Don't feel so guilty, "absence makes the heart fonder" is true for romantic love & mommy love!

I hope you and the kids have a wonderful time at Toy Story. I go to school at night so I often miss the nightly routine including bedtime so I know how hard it is to be gone.

Hi!

Does anyone have anything to eat?

Anything but pilchards and funny smelling dips would be fine.

Whose turn is it to make the coffee?

Hope you enjoy yourselves at ... ooooooooo! Cake! Sorry, you were saying?

Have fun! I love Disney. Lately it brings a tear to my eye. I'm one of those softies.

Skipping out on bedtime duty is a guilty pleasure but it would get me down too if I had to miss it for a week.
Have a rockin' good time.

THAT is going to be so much fun! Though, I'm so jealous that you and Sarah get to hang out together. Met Sarah at Bloggy Boot Camp this year and she and I were rocking the same pair of pj pants at one of the parties at Blissdom. You'll love her.

Speaking as the person playing the Dad in our story, I'm certain he'll be glad to have his night off duty.
Have a blast and please take pictures of your kids during their sugar high...b/c those will be priceless!

Sometimes, bribery works. Nothing bad about it.

When I make time to go to those things I buy Boo Boo whatever she wants too - one time she wanted cotton candy that came with a cool, really NICE Handy Manny construction helmet. The lady behind me heard it was $10 and she was all "TEN DOLLARS FOR COTTON CANDY!" - Uh, with a cool HELMET, YAH! You have to either tell your kid ahead they can only spend X or go with the flow. Those shows always have spendy stuff.

p.s. we got our picture taken with Handy Manny and the tools with the helmet on too for another $12. I roll like that.

Hi. Just stopping by. First-time visitor. Saw your banner on "Sassafrassery" and figured that I'd like your style. I was right!
