Grandma Babysits!

I learned several things this past weekend (I babysat for my 9 year old and 2 year old grandkids for the past 4 days!).

  1. God had good reason for NOT letting older women have kids.
  2. Older women may be wiser, but have WAY less patience.
  3. 2 year olds are completely capable of kicking your butt.
  4. No one talks more but than a 2 year old (and what language is that?).
  5. There are no sweeter hugs and kisses than from grandkids.
  6. I am NOT smarter than a 3rd grader (much less a 5th grader!)
  7. There is no way to keep a house picked up with 2 kids in it.
  8. You cannot keep enough milk in the refridgerator with kids in the house.
  9. You better have a vehicle with a DVD player in it.
  10. When you get any of those dang Chipmunk songs in your head, they do NOT leave.
  11. I need to exercise more.
  12. There is nothing more peaceful than 9:30 at night when everyone is asleep!
  13. When they say "I can do it", they MEAN IT!
It was a great time! Really, it was! And don't they look like little angels!!!!

Don't let the one in pink fool you!!!!

Oh, and one last thing.... Dorothy, you were so right... "There's NO place like home!" Both theirs and mine!!!!

I love you Brenden and Trella!

Hey Janis, your blog looks great! Your grandkids are so cute. It was funny reading the things you learned because it sounds so much like my mom when she is talking about her grandkids (my brother's kids as I have no children, not sure if I would be able to keep up with them either)
