Vacation Day

Today I took a vacation day from work to watch Carter & Gray.
Steph took Noah for an eye appointment at Children's Hospital in Chicago.
We had a very relaxing day at my house. T.V. was on channel 11, kids network, most of the morning......Legos covered 1 whole table, G.I. Joe's covered another table. Cars were lined up in another room. Gray educated me on all the t.v. shows and gee is he a smart little 2 year old. Who needs Pre-school when you have channel 11? Carter talked about wanting a baby sister and he wants to name her "Emily", after watching Thomas The Train, since there is a railcar named Emily. Carter missed his brother Noah. They are so use to playing together that when they are separated it isn't as fun. If there is one thing I learned today, it was, taking care of 2 little ones is a hopping job. Between meals, snack time, drink time, wiping noses, washing hands, rocking and putting socks back on little cold feet a dozen times, I was ready for a nap myself. I admire all of the mommy's and daddy's who stay at home and do this all day long.
It is always an enjoyable day when I am with my grand-kids though....A Great way to spend a vacation day.

Ah yes, channel 11. I can honestly say I don't miss Barney, but I always liked CLifford. Sounds like a busy, fun day.

Aw, so sweet of you to take care of them. We are praying that they had a good visit to the doctor!

Sounds like a busy day, but I know you loved it. Were you able to get them to take a nap with you?

What a wonderful way to spend a vacation day! You are a very wonderful Mimi. My mom never reports off work or takes vacation days in case we need her. It takes a very wonderful person to these things.

You have a great grandma attitude :-) I love it....my mom swears she doesn't know how I get anything done! I'm trying to just enjoy each stage, though...even the more difficult ones.

how great that you could spend time with your little guy. He will have great memories of you.
I scrolled down and saw the picture in the last post--too sweet. My little girl used to favor the same two fingers.

Emily is a great name if Gray gets a baby sister. Maybe he knows something that the rest of us don't. The boys may keep you hopping but they are great kids.

You are such a good grandmother! I miss being able to rely on my in-laws like that.
