Wanting to enjoy the mini glimpses of sun yesterday, the WM family walked to a nearby park to enjoy a mini hike.
The twins, B & J took turns being the leader as hubby and I followed with our schizoid mutt, Buzz in tow. They were so excited that at times I had to break in to a jog just to keep up with them. Each time that happened, I expected to see hubby and Buzz not far behind, but one time I noticed hubby had stopped a few feet back. I called to the kids and asked them to turn around because Daddy had stopped.
Wondering what hubby, who had his back turned to me, was looking at so intently I called to him "Whatcha lookin at?"
"Well there aren't any frogs over here" he says in an oddly exaggerated voice.
Huh, I thought...we hadn't been looking at or for frogs. What is he... ?
B, hearing the word frogs had gotten so excited he ran to his Daddy and was then able to answer that question for me, "Daddy, are you peeing?" my son asked.
All I could think was he's so going to get caught. Why couldn't he have waited until we got back home ?
My thoughts were interrupted when a woman and her dog appeared. They were walking on another trail a few feet away and fortunately headed off in another direction.
But that close call got me to worrying. "C'mon guys...lets get going" I urged my hubby and son.
My words fell on deaf ears as hubby was busy asking B, "Do you want to water the plants too buddy?"
My daugther J and I started walking but then stopped as my husband said "Wait up, B's trying to water the plants too...like Daddy" his chest swelling with pride.
So my little 4 1/2 year old hiked down his pants and started to go.
"Look, Mommy,I'm watering the plants" he said. Once he'd finished he hiked up his pants and slapped his dad's raised hand in a high five.
"Yeah" they both exclaim.
I rolled my eyes ...
The testosterone was so thick you could choke on it.
Aah yes,it moments like this that make me so pleased in my choice of a life Partner.
