8 Daze a Week

Still watching my grandchildren while Karmyn is in Hawaii. Her computer (and my being busy) doesn't allow for any blog time. It should be salvaged by droids. Buttercup would act it out and make me be C3Po if I even suggested it aloud. Shhhh...

She could be hooked up to a turbine and create electricity -- that almost six-year old girl is energy with a Capital E.

The Caboose has been a great little almost 15 month old boy. He's been sleeping as well as one could expect in this hot weather. My morning starts about 5:30 when he rouses and I change his diaper and snuggle him in my bed. His hair is so fluffy and soft that it sucks up my nose when I breathe and tickles my face. Not a great sleep for me -- but somehow sweet enough to manage.

Jammin (8) went to boy scout camp with his Uncle for three nights/four days. His first trip away from home without a parent. He toughed it out.

Jammin: We were the closest bunk to the lake Grandma. If you got up at 6:00 and ran down to the dock you could do the "Polar bear" swim.
Grandma: Did you do the "Polar bear" swim?
Jammin, looking up from his game: Nope, I didn't even shower.

He made a "noisemaker" using a rubber glove, some PVC pipe, and duct tape. It sounds like a sick goose and makes the dogs bark and run to the door. Makes me wonder what kind of door-to-door salesmen hang out on this street.

I'll be home by Monday. That means I'm going to miss The Wiggles.

The shower part was so funny and reminds me of childhood. If we went to the pool, bathtime was done!

Grandchildren are our gifts for not killing our kids.

Maybe you should patent the noisemaker...I'm interested in buying one.

You are fantastic. Karmyn is a lucky girl. And those grandbabies are priceless. Enjoy every second.

You can still watch the Wiggles without the children..sometimes I watch Spongebob Squarepants if I am really bored!
5:30..I am so glad mine are older..but you get the fine hairs in the nose..during the early morning cuddle..that is so worth it!
They are little for such a short time..enjoy them ! :)

Diane said...

You must have almost as much energy...to keep up with 'em!

Amy W said...

You will watch my kids while I go on vacation, right? :).

Grandkids keep you young.

I'm betting you will be sleeping very soundly when you get back home, maybe not even wake up for days. :)

I do miss The Wiggles. My youngest used to dance to their songs and sing them!
