My Kind of Time Out

Here is the Third Grader all prim and proper :

Here is Hunka Hunka #1 (my son on the left) and Hunka Hunka #2 (his buddy) waiting for the bus on their first day of kindergarten:

So where am I headed now you ask?




To "Time out" of course!



My neighbors know me all too well...
Thanks T-Luh ;)



Note: No need to worry your pretty little heads. No alcohol was consumed before, during, or after the writing of this post. It's the middle of the day for crying out loud. Sheesh. And yes, that is a real bottle of wine named "Mommy's Time Out."

They look so cute!! We had a horrible morning (they mostly are - it's all paybacks... I was a beyotch in the mornings when I was little) and i was about at my wits end... then we were headed down the stairs to the car and I saw Essie and Gert and they had their backpacks on and they just looked so dang cute... and it turns out - they're worth the trouble in the morning.

But... some of that Mommy's Time Out could come in real handy... and it's after noon now so....

Melissa said...

PG. If I was a wine drinker this would be the wine. I love PG.

Your kids look soooooo cute all dressed for school. Enjoy your 3 hours of childless bliss.....:) Let me know what it's like. It's gonna be another 2 years before I know.

Ha ha!!! I LOVED that! Sometimes a diet coke with lemon just ain't enough! :)

Sissy said...

I am so glad you have regained a little thinking time during the day. But, now that school is back in, I have lost my quiet daytime hours. Sigh.

Kat said...

Awww...come on! There is nothing wrong with a little nip. Especially in celebration on this momentous day. Enjoy your day to yourself!

Midwest Mommy said...

I absolutely LOVE BATW, but I have been missing you! So fun to see pictures of your little girl, I know she doesn't like to be on the blog much. She's a doll. Congrats on the peace and quiet at home. Enjoy!

I love it :)
Let LRRH know that her haircut is way cute and looks very nice.

Steph said...

when my youngest, of 7!, headed off to kindergarten last year, my husband said that it was the beginning of the Year of Steph! and he was absolutely right! I told my friends to not even call me before noon for at least the first month because I was going back to bed...I had a lot of sleep deprivation to catch up on!

Mrs. Jones said...

Tracy P. said...

You didn't even need to tell us which Hunka-Hunka was yours. They're adorable.

Our day 2 was all that day 1 should have been. Yea!

I'm laughing at the comment ahead of me: "all the time in the world" goes by mighty fast, doesn't it?

Z's Mom said...

Karin @ 6ByHisDesign said...

Awesome! Everything looks just as it should - all smiles! (I'm sure for Mommy, too...)

Tiffany said...

Your kids are so stinkin' cute. I love LRRH new do.. she looks super cute and sassy!

And hunka hunka...well, that says it all.

Now you can finish the Twilight series.

Lula! said...

Your kids are so gorgeous...they are both hunka hunkas. Be sure to tell LRRH that I said that!


Um, and yeah...what Tiffany said...finish Twilight...all 4 of 'em.

And remind me to tell you of my Betty Ford moment today...'cause it's pretty funny, but I'll reveal nothing here. It's strictly an "e-mail" confession.

Heather said...

I. Must. Find. That. Wine. I have at least a dozen friends that need a bottle.

Caroline said...

That is classy Debbie, classy. I wonder if they sell that here in my newly reformed city? Hmmmm.

Your kids are so beautiful. Hunka-Hunka's friend isn't chopped liver either.

Rhea said...

Wine makers come up with such creative names. I love it.

The kids all look so cute and clean on their first day of school! Love it. Hope it all went well (including Mama's alone time).

Connie said...

What adorable kidlets on their first day of school. And OMG!!! Where on earth did you find that bottle of wine? I want (need) one! I had the migraine from hell today and perhaps all I needed was a little "mommy's time out".
