Swee’Pea and TheMonk had various illnesses today that kept them away from daycare. And seeing as how people get all judgmental when we leave them home alone, I decided to stay home with them today.
But first I needed to pick up a few things at the office so I could pretend like I work at home get some work done at home. So, I packed up my two little bundles of germs and headed to the Y. Upon our arrival, Swee’Pea and TheMonk were a big hit as no one at this Y had ever met them before (I started at this Y in January). I gave Swee’Pea and TheMonk a tour and introduced them to my staff, starting with our receptionist. Our receptionist is a young lady who is a very hard worker with a great sense of humor. Which is fortunate for me because I enjoy teasing her about how she never seems to be working. The great thing is she has no qualms about giving it right back to me so we have bonded in that way.
As I finished the tour and we were back up front where the reception area is, our receptionist was nowhere to be found – most likely collecting a fax off the fax machine or making copies. Swee’Pea was quick to understand the significance of this.
“Hey,” she said, “Where’s the lady at? Why isn’t she up here, Daddy?”
And I swear to God, the look on her face looked like she was about to issue a counseling statement.
