This morning our children let us sleep in a little bit and then were in a mood to be kind and helpful. Especially Jacob, he spread out a blanket and pillows in the front room so he could give his dad a back massage. I switched over some laundry and then decided to crawl back into bed and read for a little while. It took about half an hour for my family to realize that I wasn't out in the living room with them. (I know it was a half an hour because that is how long an episode of Phineas and Ferb lasts...)
Brian: "Hon? What are you doing?"
Brian: "Why don't you come out here with us?"
Evie: "Yeah! And watch a show with us!"
Jake: "Or you can have a back rub!
Lila: "Oooo-or you can make dinner..."
Gee thanks. I think I'd rather keep reading.
