I remember cleaning the house, buying lots of groceries, and making long lists of all the things that needed to be remembered in our absence. It was a LOT OF WORK to have a "get away".
I also remember how excited I was to come home to these four "little ones". They seemed to have "grown up" a bit in our short time away.
This past week I had a chance to play "grandma" with this sweet little guy! A friend of mine from MOPS, had an opportunity to travel with her hubby, so I kept the little man from Wednesday through Friday until his Grandma came in from out of town.
Louise and I had a blast. He was happy ALL THE TIME! He was even happy to go down for a nap.
Here he is!
He loved playing with our phones and rocking in Karl's rocking chair. I had a chance to dig out some of the kid's old toys and books. Lots of fun memories!
And yes, his mom made me a great list to help me know what I needed to do and when. She also brought over all the necessary gear to make it easy for us. (She needed a few days away after all the work I know she went to to get ready. And I bet she thought he had "grown up" in just the few days she was gone.)
