Whose turn is it now?

In our attempt to be "good parents," we try to go on our kids' fieldtrips with them; and today was 'another' fieldtrip. I should be happy that our kids even get to go on fieldtrips; but all these vacation days from work... not so good. Last week was a whale watching trip for our 3rd grader, and a play downtown for our 2nd grader. Tony had to go see the whales because boats make me sick, and I got to go on the BORING fieldtrip to see Peter Rabbit. Today was an all-day trip to San Fransisco with 6 loud 5th grade boys (it was no accident he got to do this one). I can't remember what's next, but I'm sure Tony's going to say it's my turn next. WHY? Because Mr. Wonderful, Patient Dad just came home... and looks like ^)%(*^&^$. HA.... HA I'm almost tempted to say it's my turn next, but he's always so much more appreciative of me saying I've had a hard day at work with my class, after he takes his turn on a fieldtrip. Yep, definitely will be his turn next time too....

LOL! It's good that he gets a [small] taste of what you deal with on a daily basis!

Good God. Field trips. By default I am ALWAYS the field trip taker, since I don't work. Headache every time. I've considered taking a flask of vodka along. At least you guys have WAY COOL field trips. We go to places like the Delaware Agricultural Museum. Barf.
