    No matter what you say, they still don’t believe you

    June 24, 2008

    Yesterday we spent the lunch hour(s) within the hallowed halls of PBS, banging out what we hope to be the last of the issues before we can get our blog rolling. I think it’s gonna rock.

    We spent the morning taking pictures. Even in my profile picture I am not alone. You won’t be able to see him but imagine The Boy standing just below the PBS head shot, gripping my hand tightly with tears streaming down his face, asking when we can go to PBSParents.org. And these people were worried that the marketing between shows wasn’t working?

    I can’t even be alone in my profile picture. What….the…..hell? I have taken to physically placing the kids in the other room and then running to the bathroom and locking the door behind me. I don’t really have to go to the bathroom that much during the day. I’m just trying to get away from them.

    Bless their hearts, people came out of the woodwork at PBS to help watch the kids while we worked. The Husband showed up because he heard Jorgie was coming. So we had two dads, seven kids and about 5 PBS people watching the kids. Weak link? A room with no door.

    So you would imagine my surprise when I saw one of my kids run by the glass window of the conference room. There are 7 adults to 7 kids and one of mine is toddling past as fast as his fat little legs will take him. And then there is another one. Also mine. Much faster. The meeting hasn’t even started yet and there have been two runners. Suddenly I see my husband dart past the conference room. I think he was yelling but I don’t know. He walks back past the glass carrying two children upside down.

    It’s at this point that someone mentions the colossal bruise on my forearm.

    K: Derek did it.
    Jen: PLEASE.
    K: I tripped coming up the steps.
    Pache: That’s what they all say.
    K: I took pictures. Just in case I need them in the future against him.
    Jen: Seriously?
    K: I tripped coming up the steps. I was carrying The Baby. But I did take pictures.

    The Husband walks past the door leading The Boy on a walk that can only be described as The Bathroom Walk. I’m guessing that the “poop” conversation favored by the older cousins has been an inspiration to the very impressionable preschooler. Suddenly The Baby darts past. By himself. And then Jorgie is picking him up.

    45 minutes of this and Derek had to go back to work. Heaven forbid my children play with their cousins at the premier source of SUPER WHY STICKERS! Now I have one on each hip in the conference room. They are both crying. And I’m wondering why we didn’t push that lock on the conference door. It’s no bathroom, but it’ll do.

      Hey K!

      Just thinking about you and checking in — and wondering what in the heck you’re doing at PBS … I am curious about this fame you’ve found – I want in. ;)

      I just threatened to lock my children in different rooms if they didn’t stop fighting then come crying to me. Is it September yet?

      I want a cool PBS gig. But God knows I don’t want my kids with me.
