Seeing Red

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

What a week it has been.  This week Nurse Boy and I traded roles.  I worked and he stayed home with the kids.  I love switching it up every once and a while.  I think we both get to appreciate the other one more when we get to walk in their shoes for just a bit.  I spent most of the week substitute teaching at the preschool I work at during the school year.  Nurse Boy spent most of the week entertaining the kids.  He may or may not have sprinkled a little bit of housework in there.  He did keep up on the laundry though.  Thankfully, the man knows that I hate to get behind on the laundry. 

The boys also worked their dad for all he is worth.  They talked him into taking them to the Chiefs training camp on the hottest day of the year.  (OK, I don't know if it really was the hottest day of the year, but it sure felt like it.)  So, despite the extreme heat and Nurse Boy's hatred for the Chiefs, they got up early one day this week and headed out the fulfill the boys' dream.

I mean, how can you possibly say no to these handsome faces?!

After an exciting hour long drive, they discovered that the morning practice had been canceled. 
That's right:  CANCELLED. 
Without warning. 
Nurse Boy wanted to head home, but those disappointed faces had him rethink his plan.  Instead, they hung out until the afternoon practice would begin. 

A mere 5 and 1/2 hours later.

(Yes, I have nominated him for father of the year.)

By the looks of my future Chiefs players, it was worth every risk of a heat stroke.

They even came home with some autographs.  You couldn't wipe the smiles off of their faces.

But, I am afraid that Nurse Boy still swears that the only red he will be sporting this season will be a sunburn.  Ha!

That is so fun and something my hubs would do for sure. IT is all about the sports. Love it.

Tractor Mom said...

Too cool (sort of)! I'll vote for Daddy of the year!!

Come by when you can...


Rachel said...

Ohmygosh! Yes! Dad of the Year! Those boys will never forget that time with dad and how he was willing to get sunburned for them!

Sooo cool!

Kmama said...

What a dad NB is. Your boys certainly are lucky!! LOL at him sporting the sunburn red. ;-)

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

Do I have to come up with a list? I did a lot of laundry like you said. I cleaned the bathrooms, cleaned the kitchen many times. Dusted the house and vaccummed the whole house. I was only home for three days. How much housework do I need to do to get some credit for that? :-) Oh, I guess I would need ot cook something to get that credit huh.

I do appreciate your vote for father of the year though.

You were very sexy being my sugar momma last week!


Jewel said...

What a great dad! I'm impressed! It honestly sounds like something my hubs would have done with our son! And where was Sweet Pea during all of this? :-)
AND you'd think you two were in love or sumthin'? :-)

Boy Mom said...

You two make me happy. I like Nurse Boy and Sugar Momma as blognames, it makes the kids blog names even more relevant.

Way to go Daddy! Lucky boys!

Those boys look so excited! Mr NB is a trooper!

Mummy McTavish said...

Ahhh, Sugar Momma... I love it! I don't know that team or what sport they play (though I am going to guess it's football) but it looks like the boys had a great day. I say Nurse Boy should get father of the year simply for taking the camera and REMEMBERING TO TAKE PHOTOS!


What? He'd get all three cheers if he cooked you dinner while you worked!
