The Art of Sneaking Some Alone Time
Let’s chat, folks. When you’re a parent, finding a little alone time becomes an art form, a ninja skill, if you will. Gone are the days when you could lounge on the couch with a glass of wine or indulge in a little… personal time. Now, it’s all about scheduling, tiptoeing, and sometimes praying to the powers that be that no one, especially not your little ones, decides to surprise you. Oh, the perks of parenting! And if you add a surprise visit from your other half? Well, then you’re really playing with fire.
The Magic of TV Distractions
Ah, the beloved television. Our modern-day hero, always there to save the day. Be it a babysitter when we need to make a quick call or a handy distraction for our little nosey parkers. But let’s face it, even the allure of TV shows has its limits, especially when unexpected sounds lead to curious little feet scuttling your way. There’s only so much “volume up” can do.
Unplanned Comedy in the Bedroom
There’s no denying it; life throws curveballs. But the kind that leads to an amusing game of ‘grab the mysterious object’? Now, that’s sitcom-level gold. Parents worldwide have had their fair share of ‘caught red-handed’ moments, with the little ones often mistaking grown-up gadgets for… well, a more innocent plaything. The key? Swift reflexes, a pinch of panic, and perhaps a witty line to save the day.
This is the story:
A few years ago I bought a similar toy to the ones on this website. My husband was at work and the kids were down for a nap, so I wanted to try it out. I had the tv going so in case one of the kids woke up they wouldn’t hear anything.
Well my husband came home early and it woke my 6 yr old son up when he came through the door. Next thing I know I’m right about to climax when my husband bursts into our room with our soon hit on his heels and I freak out and jump 10 feet in the air with the toy falling to the floor. My son ran to pick it up thinking it was a new toy for him and I screamed at him not to touch it.
My husband is laughing his ass off while my son is now crying for me yelling at him and I’m in full panic mode. My husband picked up our son and took him out of the room while saying to my son. “Moma just had to make sure the batteries wouldn’t die in the middle of playing”.
