Catching up

It's been so busy around here the past few weeks that I have had a hard time keeping up on my blogging. These photos are from last week when I had Randy's and Leslie's kids for six days while they went to Las Vegas. It was a busy and fun time, and I sent them back undamaged for the most part. :o) (Grace had a bowling ball dropped on her toe, but it's pretty much healed now.)
The kids loved to stand in the big window and see what they could see outside. While Greg was mowing, it was so exciting for them to see him ride by. :o)
The cats pretty much staying in my bedroom under the bed, but when they did venture out into the open, they were quite tolerant of the kids wanting to touch them.

Grace especially likes the kitties and is always thrilled when one just lays there and lets her pet them. It is unusual when that one is Max.

I took Wyatt to his first day of P.L.A.Y. school in York.

Just like their father, these boys can sleep whereever they need to. Yes, Garett is standing up. He was sleeping on the sofa, woke up, walked around the living room, and laid his head on the footrest and went back to sleep.

We won't talk about the food and drink that is still under my dining room table. (The carpet cleaners come tomorrow.) This supper was spaghetti, corn on the cob, and garlic bread. They inhaled it. Garett was gnawing the corn cob after he got all the kernels eaten. :o)

Don't really need to explain this one. Those kids LOVE corn.
I took them home on Tuesday evening (a week ago today) and it was such fun to see them greet their parents when they arrived. We had a good time, and I'd do it again, but it was nice to come home and be able to sleep in my bed all night without waking to check on them. :o)

How many times...

in the past 31 hours have I said:

"Let's go to the potty! Quickly!"

"Please pick up your shoes."

"Do NOT hit/pinch/kick your brother/sister!"

"Why don't you go to the playroom?"

"Yes, I heard you. I heard you. I HEARD you!"

"Just try one bite."

"Pick that up. Pick it up. Pick. It. Up."

"Sit on the chair until the timer goes off."

"Don't pee on the floor!"

"If you have to poop, you tell me so we can go to the potty."

"Do NOT chase the cat!"

How many times in the past 31 hours:

have I had to "come see!"

have I pulled up the blankets to cover little bodies in their sleep and watched them snuggle into the warmth.

have I given and gotten "high fives".

have I had little arms wrapped around my neck, little lips puckered against mine.
