We all need a little respite now and then. Respite from our jobs, our kids, the demands of our busy lives. We are so blessed to have Mama Sue and Aunt Patsy in our lives. Not a week goes by that someone says "You know not everyone has a Mama Sue right?" Yes, yes I know we are incredibly blessed. She takes not the one kid that she started with, not even the two older ones but all three. And the best part? They love every minute of it. They come home raving about how much fun they had. It makes me smile just thinking about it!
Well this time it was our turn. We got to take care of these two wonderful little girls for the weekend. Boy did we have fun! The oldest called us mom and dad the whole time and the little one truth be told preferred Ava to me. We had a blast! Movie time, dancing, playing, coloring.... Even Derek got involved in our assembly line bath time and shopping. We even took all 5 kids to church and made it there on time. It was almost easier! Yikes did I say that? Easier since there wasn't much time to get into trouble or stray from the plan.
Mama Sue and Patsy had a restful weekend away but I still think we may have had the better deal!
