After a long hard week of situations after situations, Friday has arrived and you look forward to a weekend alone. It is not that you don’t love your children but you are longing for some luxuries for self.
Well, the time is here. The children are excited about being with Daddy for the weekend and you are excited about being by yourself. It is around 6 p.m. and all bags are packed and the children are waiting eagerly for 7 p.m. arrival of Daddy.
So, the saga begins, you have been here before. The time now is 7:45 p.m. and no phone call with an explanation, as of yet, has entertained your ears. The two youngest children are waiting patiently with no conception of time, while the eldest has went into his room to play his video game. A car has pulled into a parking spot and the children are happy until they realize it is not Daddy’s car. It is now 8:30 p.m. and another disappointed child leaves from window watching duty and starts to watch TV with you. No questions were asked as the child sits down next to you. You go into your bedroom to make a phone call to the blankly…blank…blank Daddy and of course, NO ANSWER. Now you say, “God give me strength in this situation”! As you entered into the living room you noticed the youngest child has taken off his backpack off his back and has begun watching TV with such sadness on his face.
This is where you have to get a grip on yourself to not go totally berserk and start cussing and fussing as hard as it may be. Sit in your bedroom for a moment and count to 10, maybe in this case to 50 before you go back into the room with the children. Now, how do you handle it? You learn to put on your happy POKER FACE and use a clear audible voice of happiness as you walk back into the living room. “Okay, stinkers we are going to order pizza and have a late night game/movie night” you say, as the children shout with joy and happiness. Mommy is the hero once again and unfortunately Daddy is an afterthought again.
Doorbell is ringing at 9 a.m. the next morning…umm; can you guess who that is?
