[twitter]It happens every summer. When the boys go off and spend a week with their grandparents, Jen and I are left alone in a quiet, empty house to live a life without kids. And we’re bored. Here’s my latest for Babble:
“What do you want to do?” I asked my wife, eager at the opportunity to head out into a beautiful summer night without fighting with our kids about bath, bed, brushing teeth, or whatever.
“I don’t know. What do you want to do?” she replied.
I leaned a little closer to her on the couch and flicked through the channels again. For some reason, it landed on American Ninja Warrior. Twenty minutes later, I asked her if we were actually going to do anything.
“I’m good,” she replied.
Our wild week without children was off to a yawning start. The boys were away with their grandparents at a lake for the week. This was our first night back in a child-free life and we were well and truly bored.
