not me monday

a few things me and the fam DID NOT do this week...

hubs and i DID NOT have the best time on our alone vacation. it was NOT awesome to finish sentences, eat when and where and what time we wanted. it was NOT awesome to kiss when we wanted to and not hear "eeeewwww. gross mom and dad."
we DID NOT eat dunkin donuts for lunch one day...eating nothing but 2 donuts. we are not getting cholesterol tests after this vacation to ensure we are NOT having heart attacks.

brooke DID NOT call this week on wednesday and said she had lost a tooth that had been loose for at least 3 weeks. i DID NOT ask, "would you like to write the tooth fairy a note and tell her mommy and daddy are on vacation and she could come on saturday when we all were together again?"
b DID NOT reply, "no. i think i'll just take the money now and show it to you when you get home. seems smarter, mom."b DID NOT call on thursday saying she had lost yet another tooth at school that day...then proceeded to misplace it on the bus ride home. she DID NOT reassure me the tooth fairy knows everything and that she'd still get the cash even without the tooth. i DID NOT ask, "what are you going to do with all this money, b?" b DID NOT reply, "i think i'll keep it in my room until i want something, then i'll have it." my heart DID NOT jump a beat thinking that she is learning and growing up.

ryan DID NOT complete lose the key to the condo while boogie boarding in the ocean. ocean 1, ryan 0. did i mention he had the ONLY key at the beach that day?
ryan and brian were NOT able to still get into the condo with a slim credit card...and i was NOT certain i would get a call from the sheriff's office saying they were arrested. turns out they had not idea what they were doing, but still got us back in the condo!!!

paige DID NOT go to her very first high school homecoming as a freshmen...she DID NOT have a blast at the parade and the game, in spite of a terrible loss.

jada DID NOT stay with grandma and grandpa all week...getting totally spoiled and baking up a storm!
ryan and i DID NOT sit at the airport wringing our hands and wishing we had dorothy shoes to just get home for our girlies on saturday morning...we DID NOT miss them sooo much!
