Tag Team Parenting

Yes, based on your encouragement, Smoking Hot Roommate, The Boy, The Rocket Scientist and I had chicken fingers for dinner. Well, she and I had chicken fingers, and the boys had cheeseburgers...they don't apparently see the same humor in eating fried pieces of chicken to spite a girl who gets to spend her whole summer at the beach...

I should take an extra moment to give a huge shout out to Big Sis, who has spent nearly two weeks now "working" from the beach so she can watch Munchkin. While that sounds kinda fun, it is actually sort of a pain...she still has to get everything done, but doesn't have the advantage of coming to the office. So, while she does get to spend the time at her palatial beach house gazing at the ocean while she works, it is still a pretty big commitment for her to do it. I have thanked her, and Munchkin most definitely has as well...but I want to take another minute here to point out how completely awesome she is:-). And thanks to the Brain Surgeon, too, who had to go without his lovely bride for about half of that time (unfortunately, neurology can not be performed remotely...)

Papa Bear is on vacation with some friends next week, so he takes over parenting duties, and then I will be there for a bit after July 4th. We have begun joking about going to stay at "Munchkin's House"...let's hope she isn't secretly angling to take it by squatting...

Weekend plans are much the same as usual. Blowing out of work as early as possible and heading to the beach. Normally I have to wait for The Boy to get out of work, but he has the day off for a golf tournament and is gonna meet me there, so I may be able to take half a day and leave at lunchtime. That would be ideal....otherwise I could wait and ride down with SHR and the Rocket Scientist or Papa Bear. Haven't decided on that just yet.

And that, folks, is about all she wrote for this week. Somewhere around six more weeks of work for me...
