Long story short, right after the first term school break, both the boys will be sent to my in laws place after school. Currently, the in laws come in the morning and stay put till evening. They leave once I am back from work.
Both boys leave for school in the morning. The earliest to come home is D, at 12.30pm. N on the hand, reaches home at 1.30pm the latest. Basically, the in laws need spend only half a day till I come back from work.
Let’s just say everything is not rosy as it seems. The house looks like a warzone every single night I come back home. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s the sticky floor. And I am moderately OCD.
Regardless of the time I reach home, I clean the kitchen, tidy the house, sweep the floor and mop the living room & kitchen floor. Every night. Since last December. I reach home late, even at 9.30pm sometimes, ever since I came back from my 10 days long business trip. I have not cooked a single day since then. Work has been crazy.
My MIL can be untidy in the kitchen while she is cooking.. That said, she keeps her house well. Since this is my house…oh well, let’s not get into that.
So anyways, since they are technically free from the boys till half day, we felt it is only fair for them to rest and do whatever they want in the comfort of their own home.
Not before the husband audits the house, that is.
The arrangement is almost similar to what we had before except that the boys will head to school from our home now that both has started schooling. The respective transporters to send them to in laws place as opposed to our home. Hubby will pick them up after work from his parents’ place.
I will head home after work. Will either cook or buy dinner and be ready to welcome them back home daily just like before. At least, the time I spend on cleaning the house everyday can be used to spend with my children.
