This morning I was leaving to take Sarah to volunteer with some other students at a big family fun day at Sacred Heart Hospital, when I got the usual question I get from the children when Sarah and I leave to go anywhere together. This time it came from Sam.

"But, Mom. Who's in charge?"
My response was to remind them all that Daddy was home and in charge. I knew Rob would be trying to get some work done as well so I also urged them to pretend Daddy wasn't there. Basically, he's in charge but unless it's an emergency, Emily could handle things. It's good training for her and let's Daddy actually get some work done.
Things were moving along rather nicely until Rob had heard enough of Sam's drum concert.
"Son, you have to be done with the drums now."
Sam: "Aaaahhhhhhhhhh!", throwing hands up and turning his face away. "You're making me disobey! Mom said to pretend you weren't here!"
He still had to abandon the drum solo.
There are a couple more funny Sam stories involving a whoopee cushion and a hymnal over on Rob's blog. And there might be one about Claire and her thoughts on Rob's age.
