I love Mr. Man, I do, he is loyal, dedicated, a great father, motivated, and the man does not know how to relax. He started his "vacation" with a bang and a plan, "Let's clean out the house!"
I kept protesting, "Pourquoi? Mr. Man, it's Christmas! I still have gifts to buy, to wrap, and baking to do." Mr. Man assured me it would all get done and he was right, even though I threw several tantrums along the way. We worked as a team and everything came together for the most part.
The kids decorated Gingerbread houses while Mr. Man & I purged the closets.
My favorite was that they had an actual Kwik E Mart from The Simpsons. While the studio tour had some fun features, but it wasn't nearly as fun as hanging out with Mr. Man on the Warner Bros lot. Even Mr. Boy said, "What we can't go into the soundstages? Daddy.. tell them it's okay!" I don't think Mr. Boy knows that not everyone has a dad who works in the Entertainment Biz.
We attended my company Christmas Party, which I love because it is a family affair. The kids love it because they get all the root beer they want plus gifts.
Mr. Boy was hiding out under the table anxiously awaiting his gift.
