Oh, XWH... you are so transparent.
So, he and the Owife came to pick up the kids from my house (ETA: for trick-or-treating). The kids had to wait on the porch with me because it was raining, but fortunately, Owife knew her place (out in the street) while XWH came up on my lawn.
So, not only does XWH come IN COSTUME this year (this from the man who previously did nothing for Halloween other than slog along with us during trick-or-treating while I took care of everything else), but he and the Owife then stand in front of the neighbor's house on the sidewalk chit chatting with the kids for about five minutes-- gosh, enough time for me to see what a happy family they are?
I just sat there and honestly tried not to laugh. It is really somewhat sad to see how hard they are trying. Oh, and her kids? They were apparently with their dad, so shucks, no Brady Bunch Halloween this year.
At the end of the night, DS #2 informed me that he no longer wants to go trick-or-treating with his dad and wants me to take them next year; DD said that she wished I could have gone with them as well. So yeah, XWH, your cutsie outfit and attempt at playing the family man isn't even working on your 7 year old and 5 year old. They'd rather be with their real parent.
Suck on THAT, you Dum Dum.
