Grandpa HNT

Last night Lori and I baby sat for Lori's son's girl friend's kids so they could go out to dinner. Things are VERY serious with all of us. I guess you could say we are family. Being family there comes certain responsibilities like baby sitting one's kids and grand kids. Last night was baby sitting the grand kids. The one boy just turned 4 and the other two are two year old twins; one boy and one girl.

I was told that the twins go to sleep at 6:30, so I figured baby sitting would be a piece of cake. LMAO!!!!!!! Sleep? Not a chance.

We are plum tuckered out by this point. Even the 4 YO brother.

Finally the twins were put in bed. I said "night, night", but that was far from night night. Two year olds do not want to go to sleep when the grand parents are baby sitting.

That was followed by crying and crying, screaming and screaming and crying and screaming. Obviously the babies didn't want to go to sleep.

Finally they did quiet down and go to sleep and I took a well deserved nap.

I napped for 30 minutes. That nap was interupted by the mom and her boy friend; THANK GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Finally they were home. They owe me BIG TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All said, I love these grand kids like they are my own.

Happy Grandpa HNT!

Hee hee thats what grandpas are for. They do look like they are wearing you out.
I am glad that things are very SERIOUS with you two. LOL, that is what Mr Ratburns uncle whispered to me when I met first met him, and Gary and I had been dating for a year...."Is it serious?"
22 years later, I'd say it was.
