... the only thing more neglectful than a mom, abandoning her children to a weekend of grilled cheese sandwiches and too much soda and excessive tv watching** so that she can spend the weekend visiting friends in NYC????
A mom who is home less than 48 hours before leaving again to spend a long weekend scrapbooking in Pennsylvania with her girlfriends.
**I'm totally kidding. Blaine is a fabulous stay-at-home dad the times I go away, and in fact, would probably make a better house husband than me. Plus, the kids LOVE the soda and excessive tv watching.
Also, to the general public of the Atlanta-Hartsfield Airport from Thursday morning: the human dandelion you saw walking through your jetways was me. Deciding to park in long-term (ie, cheaper, NON-covered) parking during a wicked downpour, pelting, thundering rainstorm was perhaps not the best idea for someone with naturally coarse, frizzy hair. So I'm sorry for any small children I might have frightened yesterday. All the flat irons in the world are no match for Mother Nature.
Note to self: Umbrellas INSIDE suitcases really do no one any good. Moron.
