My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Don't Steal the Car!!

Being a one car family brings with it some interesting adventures!

Last Friday Subvet had an appointment downtown at the same time that the kids needed to be at school.  Since it takes over an hour to get downtown from our house and the school is less than 1/2 mile away, we decided that the kids and I would just walk to school. 

We told the kids the night before that Daddy would be taking the car to go to the doctor and they'd be walking to school with me. 

We told them again Friday morning.

Daddy said goodbye and drove off for his appointment.


And as we're walking out the front door for school all three kids stop dead in their tracks. 

Stare at the empty drive way....

And exclaim:

DADDY STOLE THE CAR!!!!!  

In perfect 3-kid echo-harmony. 


The entire neighborhood and I then heard   ~~throughout the ENTIRE 1/2 mile walk ~~  variations on "We have to WALK to school today because Daddy STOLE our car!!!"


Poor Daddy, he's in trouble and he doesn't even know it!

oh how funny! We too are a one car family now. It's much easier for us than you as I have one teen at home and hubby only works 8 minutes away, so it's easy to drive him to work and pick him up later if I need the vehicle for the day. I'm so glad to find that you are still "blogging"!
