Official complaint

Today was the best Valentine’s day ever.

Little J’s preschool organized parents time out between 4 to 8 so that we could celebrate the day of love. My husband had a class so I was left home alone. I napped. Then I ate cheese. It was marvelous.

Apparently Little J did not share the same enthusiasm about his evening. When I picked him up he got in the car and said:

‘Mommy this parent time out was not what I expected. There were no boys, just girls tonight. You know how girls are. All crazy about me, running behind me and bugging me. I had no peace and no time for myself. Then we did two art projects. Not one, but two. That was too much, I felt like I was in school, but without any boys. And then we watched a movie I did not like. It was all mushy and full of princesses. Lucky for me the pizza was tasty. But no dessert after dinner. Really I think you must tell Miss K that this time she did not win my heart with the party. Next time we need to check the schedule before you sign me up. If there are heart projects and pink, I am not going.’

He had some other complaints, but I tuned him out. Frankly he was killing my cheese buzz.

Five year olds are a tough crowd to please…

    omg this cracks me up because I didn’t have any chocolate in the house ( the hell?), but I do have the amazing cheese that I have been just eating slowly because the factory burned down 2 weeks ago – so now more cheese for awhile. and it’s so good it’s like candy. And well… is gone.
    was totally worth it.

    Sorry Little J had a sucky party. Monkey Boy got a smile and a Toy Story valentine from his crush and pretty sure he floated off the bus.
    Le sigh…..remember being 8 years old?
    meh, me neither.

    Hahahahaha!! Soon, he’ll look back and regret he didn’t enjoy being the boy everyone wanted a piece of.

    I love the idea of a parent time out, brilliant.

    LOVE this!!! I have heard some of the best kid stories today and this was the icing on the cake.

    Not surprising all the girls are following him around. In another 10 years or so he won’t be complaining. Haha!

    Sorry to hear that the party did not win his heart – at least there was pizza. (But napping and cheese sounds delightful!)

    I hate when it’s me and a bunch of hot guys. Poor Little J. Especially the NO DESSERT part. That’s just mean.

    Aw, J! LOL, ruining your cheese buzz. I think that he’ll wish girls were chasing him around when he’s a little bit older :).

    Next time Mommy, you better check the hearts situation! Boys do not like hearts unless they are in dead animals! Sorry, but it’s true. Boys love a dead animal. Just sayin’.

    I can just hear the conversation/complaint playing out. My sons would have felt exactly the same!!
    Don’t let him lose that cheese moment for you… sounds wonderful. Peace, solitude and a little indulgement – just what every Mumma needs! :)

    Oh no he did not kill your cheese buzz. Unacceptable!

    LOL! It’s so funny when children say such things, and of course, the expression on their faces are always so serious and it’s difficult for parents not to show their smiles
