Young couples think it’s hard to find “alone time” when the kids are little … it’s worse when the kids are teenagers. When we want them home for family dinner, they have a million other places they want to be, but when we want them gone so we can have “alone time” THEY WON’T LEAVE !!
It started out as a joke about what D and I would be doing when one of them asked as they were all leaving the house on a rare occasion, “we’re going to play UNO.” It turned into code … and then the kids figured out the code and now it’s just fun to say “be sure and knock before you walk in, because we might be playing UNO” because their response is ALWAYS “GROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSS” OR “THAT’S DISGUSTING!!”
What’s the point of having kids if you can’t torture them a little?
