    Waitaminnit…..you have FOUR kids and you don’t yet have a LOCK on your door? (to keep your MOM out?!)

    I gave my husband a locking door knob as a Christmas present many years ago. 🙂

    Giggling. My husband came home from work for a quickie on Monday.

    • OH Jane Jane Jane. I’m TIRED. Suddenly I am feeling intense gratitude for my husband working an hour away.

    Obviosuy you don’t know me. I would NEVER live above my daughter as I don’t live under my mom’s roof (which she repeatedly requested, yes Bb the apartment wher eyou stayed was my home in my mom’s head).
    Other than that you should have said at the top of your lungs …


    (which you probably did)

    “OOOOPS!” moment uh?

  • Paola

    that would be obviously …

  • BigBro
