Mrs. Earp is scheduled for jury duty today, and while I did get a kick out of her whining about going – since she always laughs when I have a court case downtown – I was not entirely thrilled with being Mr. Mom today.
You see, Mrs. Earp is a stay-at-home mom, and when she is not eating bon-bons and watching her stories, she actually works her ass off getting the kids up, fed, dressed, and off to school. Today I have to do all those things. On my day off.
Naturally, I suck ass at these things since I rarely have to organize them.
So, by the time you read this, one of two things have happened:
1. I actually woke up, got the kids dressed, fed, and off to school without a hitch, and I am currently putting up the outside Christmas lights before smoking a celebratory cigar.
2. I overslept, the kids overslept, no one wanted to eat OR get dressed, and I said screw it before calling them all out sick.
Honestly, it’s a 50/50 proposition. Wish me luck.
