You have to love a trier

DH just dropped into the conversation that he has all the 3 SGD’s next Saturday, and what will I be doing on that day?

I will be having a lovely day on my own walking round our local city; you will be getting thrown out of any café you take the wild bunch in [like we have done the last 4 times we have taken them out].

Good response. Disengagement

Good response. Disengagement = the absolute best. I only disengaged from one of my skids bc the other two were fine...though I did expect DH to do most of the work for them when they were here. To me, that's not disengagement...that's just basic parenting / responsibility.
