As I'm writing an e-mail to a parent, trying to get things settled before things get crazy around here HS comes down and starts rattling off his plan for the day. It involves Jeremy, but I guess it's necessary to let me know everything going on and the play-by-play as it happenes.
About three sentences in I ask him to wait a few minutes until I finish the e-mail.
He says, "Yes," waits a few seconds and then continues.
"Sweetie, I just a few minutes while I finish this thought please."
"Ok." And then he continues.
After a few sentences he realizes that I really am not listening and says, "I'll go talk to Jeremy."
"Sounds good, as it sounds like your plan involves him."
So he heads downstairs to talk to Jeremy. A few minutes later Jeremy comes upstairs and Samantha curls up next to me asking if I'll play animals with her, "Yes, just let me finish this e-mail, sweetie."
Jeremy then stands in front of me and starts, "HS just came and told me his plan for the day- we are going to-"
At which point I bellowed out, "WOULD YOU ALL JUST LET ME FINISH THIS E-MAIL! I NEED TO THINK FOR A FEW SECONDS SO I CAN COMPLETE THIS SENTENCE!!!"
To which Jeremy replies, "NO!!!! WE WILL NOT!!"
And then he sat down next to me and helped me finish it (I tend to be a little too blunt so I always need someone to proof-read e-mails to parents.)
And that is why my husband is awesome.
