Want to have a coffee date?
If I had you over to my house, I would ask you to stop by Starbucks on your way. A grande pumpkin spice latte for me. I hope you don’t mind the Bailey’s I dump inside, I’m friendlier when I’m buzzed.
There would be Spongebob Squarepants singing about living in a pineapple as my kids stomp around in my roller skates. They’re learning, so you’ll have to speak up as they pound their wheels into my hardwoods.
My little Kainoa might ask you to buy him a train again and again and again and again. Isn’t he endearing?
I would probably ask you to sit on the floor. Keep my kids occupied with stories of your own while I steal a quiet minute to use the bathroom. It’s been so long.
I would probably apologize for my dog’s over active need to hump legs. I hope you take it as a compliment. He only humps attractive women…which is why I can rarely have him around me.
I would tell you we’re ready for Thanksgiving! I have showed my daughters tutorials on how to properly prepare a turkey and I can’t wait to taste their final product. I would ask what your kids will be serving you this Thanksgiving? And confess to you that this is actually my least favorite holiday. Would it have killed the pilgrims to serve pizza during this feast?
I would tell you I desire little more than to nap soundly right smack dab in the middle of the floor as my children skate stomp around me.
I would confess I don’t have the courage to wear colored jeans in public. Or riding boots. Or the two together. Even though I’ve seen they look adorable on Pinterest.
I would tell you about my wonderful children.
Maile is bright and gets 100% on her spelling words each week. Laina is magical. Part girl, part dog…I never tire of her laughter/howl. And Kainoa has a gift for gab. He will enlighten you with his knowledge of trains and Fruit Loops. I would ask you if you’d like to take them home with you. They are my greatest gifts and I am a giver. I love to share my gifts.
I would thank you for coming over and wave wildly as you drive off with my children. They will make themselves at home with you for the day and you can bring them back after you feed them their dinner.
Please come again any time…with the Starbucks…and the Bailey’s.
I’m fresh out.
