My child-filled weekend!!
I got to their house about 5pm on Saturday and the drive was actually pretty nice!! The parents left about an hour later…I cooked dinner--corn dogs and Tater Tots--which we ate on the back deck. Then, baths and a board game--the Bratz dolls, which I am a little sick of have this "make the doll up" game--then ice cream sundaes and I let them watch TV in bed for a little bit…then it was night-night!! Sunday morning, woke up around 8--I was SO happy they let me sleep "late"! Breakfast was instant oatmeal, easy stuff, and then getting dressed--complete with me doing hair!! Whoo! That was an adventure!! I'm NOT good with hair, but I fared pretty well!! Then, we packed lunch for an outdoor lunch in the "park", which was actually just a bench at the playground. Then we actually walked to the playground. They played, we all got on swings and then I practiced some of my dancing…played a QUICK game of basketball--I was referee--and then walked home. As we got back to their block, their parents were rounding the corner!! It was GREAT…they listen to me pretty well and when they don't, they are easy for me to discipline!! A simple "Go to your room and I mean it" brings tears and fear! Oh yes AND the kids wanted to dance...LOL!! WE did the Cha Cha slide, Electric Slide and Booty call...like all five of us, in the living room, doing line dances!! AND she paid me $60!! WHAT? I was EXTRA happy!! I was willing to do it for "a chance to be out of Baltimore and gas!" LOL!! So it was a great weekend...I can wait to have my own children!! (And NO, I didn't write the "can" by mistake!)
