How do my parents REALLY feel about the Dinks?

Mum and Dad were watching the baby this morning while I took care of some ... uh ... personal business. I then picked her up and took her to school.

This was the phone conversation later in the afternoon.

Mom: You made it into work okay?

Me: Yep, all in one piece.

Mom: And the baby?

Me: Yep, she's in one piece, too.

Mom: Well, we feel bad we couldn't keep the baby today.

Me: Don't. She loves going to school.

Mom: No, we feel bad for ourselves.

Me (while nodding head): Ahhh. Gotcha.

That is sweet of your parents.

oh I'm praying you get a mother's day gift this year, at least a homemade card from the Dinks, something they do in school.

Ruth ~ My parents are nutz about the Dinks.

Snickers ~ Wrong, you sick little muppet.

VG ~ Well, Dinks blew that secret yesterday. She showed me her art project in school when I picked her up. Yes, a hand-made Mommy Day card.
