Some of you already know this but at the risk of repeating myself, I am at my niece's babysitting her four kids (under the age of eight). My niece's one friend took care of them the first week and now it is my turn while my niece and her husband vacation in Italy.
I wanted to show you the plans I had for my time here, in my free time, spare time, my sewing time (those of you with kids....no laughing).
Some of you may remember this quilt from Samoa? I am blanket stitching around the flowers, I was hoping to finish this while here.
AIN'T HAPPENING EITHER!!!!
AIN'T STINKING HAPPENING!!!!
My niece's friend laughed when I showed her all the things I had planned to get done. I could have saved myself a lot of prep time before I came.
Oh...I am not complaining. These kids are adorable and can make you laugh and hugs that melt your heart...but....
My niece has stairs. I climbed those stairs so much yesterday that my calves hurt. When it came to bedtime, I read to them, let two stay up and read. Her son came to me and said, can you come and tuck me in. Those stairs looked like mountains by that time. So....I sucked in the "No..can you just go to bed" and climbed them. Then the last one to go to bed.....oh my gosh....must I really climb those stairs... I did.
When the last child was in bed, this gal crashed. WE all know I am a night person.....
My eyes flew open at five this morning. I ain't no spring chicken but it looks like I am crowing when the sun comes up.
Will be crowing tomorrow with the Reindeer Games quilt, so please join us then.
