It use to be that I was too busy after work to do house chores, i.e., wash dishes, wash clothes, oversee homework, pick up Olusola, cook, etc; But now that GRANDMA’ is in town, the children literally race to the door to greet me and vanish to the side of GRANDMA’. Which throws off the ecological making of la casa. Ok so maybe ecological is not the best word, so let’s just say GRANDMA’ is unbalancing the natural habitat of our home.
No longer can I use the children for being lazy and escaping chores. KMT is now timing my route home from work and assigning me house duties I haven’t done in 10 years; she actually tried to call me, at which I ignored, then texted me and demanded that I make broccoli. I’m a man with muscles, at least assign me to taking the garbage out or something – but BROCCOLI!!!???
So while I’m blogging I can’t help but notice that GRANDMA’ and the children are in the room, enjoying their selves playing board games. See the problem is GRANDMA’ now home schools Olusola and helps Freedom with her homework after school. And just when I thought that I can use my freelance work as an excuse, come to find out I have 5 clients lined up, all lacking the content for their websites to move forward. To make it worst, I tried bringing work home from the job and that was rolling successfully until yesterday when KMT says, “You know, the more you do their work at home the less you get paid on the job. They are paying you hourly so they’re getting more buck for your contract.” DAMN!!! Can’t beat a woman with sense.
I love my mother, I truly do! But she’s too damn AWESOME!!! She loves her grandchildren and calls Olusola her “Doo-Doo Bug”. Freedom and moms petitioned to go into business together, beading – so Freedom asked, “When can we set up a meeting with you to do our website”. Being tired from doing nothing after work, i tried to avoid the petition but was reminded again over the weekend (by Freedom) that we need to meet… sigh.
So Doo-Doo Bug is now able to request toys, and foods in multiple colors (red car, blue truck, green grapes, white juice (not water!!!) – but literally juice, and Freedom is trying to contract me out and KMT is demanding that I work around the house or as she (KMT) says, “we can now dibby the house work between us”. Who the !!!adult volgar sex!!! is dibby!!!
Thank You all for reading / listening… Go GREEN – GRANMA IS AWESOME!!!
