Just got home from a few days with the grandchildren. We had such fun. One of the best days was when we went to the playground. I don't take my computer when I go. Not even the iPad. But I do love to snap a few photos with my phone.
What a gorgeous day to run and climb and slide and race around.
Mommy never goes to lunch when she is alone with the littles. Too hard when one needs a trip to the potty. Too hard when you are juggling a couple of food trays. So when I am there, Little Sister's first words at preschool pick up are, "Where are we going for lunch today?" I look forward to a trip to this local eatery, too.
Knitting at their house needs to be super simple and it's done early in the morning when the house is quiet. (I can't imagine a visit with no knitting.) Grandmother's Favorite is my pattern of choice for simple knitting. It's appropriately named, too. And someone always needs a new dishcloth. Every time Baby Girl sees me knitting, she asks, "What doing, Mimi? What doing?" Maybe next time she know what to call it.
One of my "Mimi duties" is getting the bigger girls to school in the morning so that Mommy gets a little break. Finding shoes. Brushing hair. Packing lunch. Leaving on time. Listening to "Old Bell Cow" one hundred times on the drive to the high school, then on to the long line at preschool.
Since I was there last, Baby Girl has become a reader. I read and read and read to her. And every now and then, she read to me. Good times. Precious moments.
When the sun came up this morning, I was home in my own bed. It's awfully quiet here.
