so, i’m still hanging out with my son & his family. which is awesome…being with a family, a loving family, is fantastic.

he made me a Mother’s Day card and his brother, dad and he took his mom and i out for dinner and Cold Stone last night…it was so cute!

i’ve been making treats for their baseball games and cheering like a lunatic. so, on Saturday their parents needed to have a meeting with some other parents in the PTO and i said that Yes, i would babysit.

i ended up with EIGHT kids between 5 and 10 years old. for almost 4 hours. i said, ‘oh i was the oldest granddaughter and built in babysitter, it’s fine.’

that was a long time ago!!! i was crazy to do it. but kids are so funny and it ended up being fun…i put four in front of an X Box and Game Cube simultaneously and made them take turns in one room and in the adjacent room, i put Kicking & Screaming on the 60 inch screen, got out grapes and Kettle Corn and rotated playing connect four on the floor in front of the screen.

then, i made picking up the place a game so that we could play Hide & Go See in the dark – and the count was to sixty with a double count, which meant that for at least 3 minutes at a time, there was total silence in the dark. Ha!!!

they had so much fun and the parents ended up giving me a wad of cash at the end b/c they were so happy with their kids hugging me and loving me – and also b/c i teased them about giving them pills when they picked their kids up. so, i may be crazy, but i’m Paid & Crazy! lol…also, the wildlife here is awesome and i’m attaching some Reptography i stumbled upon πŸ˜‰
