While the cat's away...

The mice will become incredibly slack. :P

DH is away on business.  This was a more-often-than-not part of our Saitama lifestyle.  It's pretty rare here though.  Especially multi-night trips.  But he left this morning and he'll be back late Friday night.  We all miss him, and before it's over A will have at least one long wailing plaintive 'Dadddyyyyyyyyy!' bout from the front door (think Stelllaaaaaaaaa! and you're close.) :'( 

But at the same time we are having our own 'hee hee hee, don't tell daddy!' fun.  Today it was eating brekky in our pjs, sharing leftovers for dinner- a pick and choose tupperware banquet, not tidying the shoes in the genkan, and eating our rice with soup poured on top- with spoons!!  Shocking, hey?

And before you all think I am being deceitful and encouraging my daughters to lie to Daddy be reassured that they tell him EVERYTHING the moment he calls.  

'Hi Meg, it's Daddy.  How was yo-'
'Daddy, Daddy!  SKUSE ME!  Mummy said brekky in pyjamas today!! And Daddy? Mummy said...'

And it's getting my two Daddy's girls through the business trip.

You see, this is how our family works:

I have really fond memories of eating take-out fried chicken (!) and watching a movied during dinner (!) while my mother and sister and I had an indoor "picnic." My dad was away for the weekend and it was so sinfully decadent for us to indulge in the "forbidden." I hope your daughter's feel the same one day.

Daddy's girls eh? : D I find that very cute! As I am a daddy's girl myself. We've always been just so close, my dad and I! : )

My two son's are very close to me. I have 2 very loyal sons. They adore Noboru and all,spend heaps of time with him doing that guy bonding thing, lol, but they are definitely closest with me/mom.

And I also really like that picture as well! : )

I love that picture!! It really fits into what you were saying in your post!

I hope your girls are enjoying doing all the 'naughty' stuff while their dad is away!! I'm sure they are loving every minute of it.

coffegrl- I hadn't thought about it but yeah, even now I remember doing that kind of thing. When mum was out we could stay up half an hour past bedtime if we promised to then get to bed no fuss (smart Dad, now I think about it!) and when Dad was away we would all snuggle in their bed in the morning and my mum would read us books. Fingers crossed we don't have too many opportunities to do that sort of thing here but I hope I can make them special, anyway. :)

Illahee- you don't think I look a little lonely there by myself?? But as a picture of K and the girls I love it.

Gina- yup, very much Daddy's girls. They do heaps of stuff with me and middle of the night it's 'muuuuuummmmmmmmmyyyyyyyy!' but the rest of the time Daddy is definitely most popular around here. I'm happy for DH as he doesn't get to spend a lot of time with them but I do get little jealous sometimes. :(

Nay, thanks. We had a bubble bath, ate in the living room in front of the fire, took Friday off kinder and spent the day drawing and cutting and pasting so it was quite the fun times here but when Dh came home they were sooo excited: DADDYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! Can't blame them though, I was kind of excited, too! ;P
