You had one job
While I got the kids ready for naps, Matt sayed downstairs watching the Pitt game with Audrey, because she had already napped. As I’m running around dealing with one emotional kid after the other, I hear Matt cheering, and I smile to myself because he deserves to watch the game after the week he had.
After getting Mae’s face washed, I turn to see Audrey at the second to last stair at the top, beaming with pride.
No, Matt behind her.
I shout, “Matthew!” and I hear him jump to his feet, then shakes his head at the bottom of the stairs, grabs Audrey and puts the gate up.
When I came downstairs, he said, “I asked Audrey why she got me in trouble, but she’s not answering me.”
