Recently, while my girls took a much need vacay , I gladly volunteered to grand-sit!
Eagerly I reported for duty, rolled up my sleeves, took a deep breath and jumped right
into their busy little lives. Balancing schedules and routines with domestic duties and
playtime is a big job! One that I’ve forgotten how to do, but after numerous calls to
“mommy” I got into the groove. Soccer game, birthday party and a Easter egg hunt didn’t
phase me once I figured out how to get Emme to sleep. In truth I enjoyed it and treasured
the opportunity to love on all of my girls at the same time. Both present and afar.
On Saturday, while Carter enjoyed Ruby’s birthday party at the Kiddie Park, Emme enjoyed
riding solo for the first time and ate cupcakes while I painted lot’s of cute faces at the party.
Kids are full of energy and non-stop fun but eventually they get tired and rest. During nap
time I tackled laundry, floors and the kitchen sink…knowing how appreciated they would be.
Easter Sunday was a special treat to have lunch and an egg hunt with friends. The girls had
lots of fun and candy. Later they came up with a new rumble tumble game on the trampoline
which kept us laughing for a long time. I took several videos. Now if I can figure out how to
get one on here!
Five days went by quickly and though we had a wonderful time, everyone was happy when
Mom came home!
