At the dinner table tonight we were talking about our day. The kids told their dad all they had accomplished - watching some TV, playing dolls, trading baseball cards - the usual...when the topic of how cool Christmas vacation is came up.
Alek - 'Dad, you should be on vacation too. It's cool.'
Dad - 'I'd love that.'
Me - 'I'd like to have a vacation too.'
Alek, incredulous - 'But Mom! You're ALWAYS on vacation.'
Me - 'Ex-cuuuuuse me?'
Alek - 'You don't go to work anymore...so you're ALWAYS on vacation.'
Me - 'Believe me, Alek. Staying home is no vacation.'
Alek - 'But, Mom, you WANTED to stay home.'
