Or, I could’ve titled this post Why Working From Home Isn’t As Amazing As People Think It Is.
Today is the first day of school for the big Dudes.
Lots of WAHMs anxiously look forward to this special day of the year when the kids head back to school and your living room couch home office gets to be used again.
In our case, it is a day that marks loneliness and despair for one left-behind-4-year-old and his mama who can’t seem to focus on work one bit because she is busy acting like a buffoon to make him smile consoling Mr. Gloomy-Pants.
Sadly, there don’t seem to be enough silly jokes or funny faces on the planet to brighten up my little guy. No handmade crafts, singing TV shows, or hours spent banging dinosaurs into trucks keep him from asking (every 5 minutes I might add) if it’s time for “the brovers” to come home yet.
Fine, I guess we will just have to hit up the pool, go for donuts, and take a nap together on the couch.
One thing’s for certain, with these shenanigans going on in the absence of his human entertainers, this mama won’t be getting much work done…
Note to neighbors: Wolf man likes to knock on doors and frighten unsuspecting residents. Please leave a plate of cookies on your door step if you’d like to keep him from interrupting your day.
