Moms Need A Break Too!
It started off as me the mom needing a 5 minute break from the kids, so I quietly slipped up stairs to my room after dinner. There was only one small flaw in my plan, I have 4 kids and the thought that I wouldn't be missed for 5 whole minutes was absurd.
So when I heard the familiar sound of my oldest hollering "mom, mom where are you?" did the idea to slide off my bed and hide between the bed and the wall come in. If they just peeked their heads into my room they wouldn't see me but if they walked in they would find me. AAH worked like a charm I heard my oldest at the door say "Mom ... you're not in here? He was very confused I had to cover my mouth to keep from laughing out loud and giving away my position. I was sure he was going to walk in the room and I'd be discovered but he didn't. I stayed on the floor for a few minutes before I decided why not go with it. I jumped up grabbed a pillow and a magazine and laid back down on the floor.
It took my husband calling me on my phone to find out where the heck I was cause the kids were panicking cause they couldn't find me. **Note to self leave the darn thing downstairs next time I want 5 minutes of peace.** Don't worry I didn't leave them completely unattended my husband was down stairs doing the dishes.
I did however manage to get in a full 20 minutes of reading time even if I did have to hide to get it but sometimes moms need a break too!
Don't let thier cute smiling faces fool you they know exactly what thier doing!
