In Cloe's Words

This morning, Cloe had some thoughts to share...in her own words:

Well, Mom, Spring Break and all my days off are over.  I have to go back to school today.  And Dad gets today off, but he has to go back to work tomorrow.  But you, mom, get every day off.  You're so lucky.


Yes, that's right:  I get every day off.  Cloe said so.  Better run and enjoy a few bon-bons with my feet kicked up on the couch!

In all seriousness, I'm glad I get every day off...to care for my family, to show them love, to meet their needs...nothing more I'd rather do on my days off!

Be sure to get a nap in the hammock today, too. Tell your gardener I said hello. And remind your maid and butler to give the paycheck to the chef when he arrives :-)

So funny! While you are eating bon-bons, sitting in your hammock and bossing your butler around... might as well turn on some soft music and take a nap :)

Cloe is amazing. So funny. And, since you're loafing today, don't forget to lazily paint your nails, get your eyebrows waxed (or threaded, or whatever it is that ladies of leisure do nowadays), slowly browse your way through TJMaxx for a few extra throw pillows and comfy slippers, sip coffee with a friend . . . Goodness, I laughed out loud when I read that. What does she suppose you do all day, I wonder? :)

Oh, my goodness, how funny! Their perspective is hilarious. :) I'm so glad I get every day 'off' to be home with my family, too! :)
