Friday’s conversation with the kids:
Me: The kids at school will probably be talking about it so I thought I should let you know that Prince died.
Kids: Our prince? The prince of Sweden?
Me: No, no no! The music artist. Do you remember who that is?
Kids: (with sad face) Yeah, it’s the one who sings “We will, We will Rock You.”
Me: Um, no that’s Queen, but I can totally understand the confusion.
My children were complaining this week that the weekends should be longer. I slammed my fist on the table and said, “I shall make it so that this weekend is 4 days long!”
The kids stared at me in amazement. Then they stared at my husband who simply nodded in agreement.
I said, “Who decides?!”
They yelled, “Mamma decides!”
(Did I forget to mention that we have a 4-day Easter weekend anyway?)
It’s nice to have my own little kingdom at times. Especially when your subjects think you control the days. (Until they ask you why you make it winter so long.)
