My baby girl is staying the night at Grandma and Grandpa’s house tonight for the first time. My parents decided that for the next few weekends each of the kids will have a turn at spending the night at their house. I can’t understand why they can’t take them all at once. I mean how much trouble can 4 kids be? HAHAHA!
This is the first time Karli has stayed the night anywhere else than her own bed except for when she has been with us on vacation. This is sort of a big deal. I actually went out of my way to spend the entire day with her today before she left. When we were cuddling on the couch watching TV she was being so funny. I was missing her already and she wasn’t even gone yet. First she was saying that this girl that was bleeding and fell down (she was pregnant) on TV slipped and fell in a pile of ketchup. Then when I told her I loved her she replied with, “I know”. Nice.
I actually took her to the store and spoiled her by buying her some shoes, some pj’s, some underwear (this was what she was most excited about!) and two new girly movies that came out recently. I could go broke trying to keep up with all the new movie releases. We always buy all the Pixar, Disney, Dreamworks, etc movies when they come out on DVD even if we have seen them on the big screen.
I just got off the phone with Karli, she called me to say Goodnight. She told me her and grandma were putting together puzzles. Being a grandma seems like it would be so much fun, doesn’t it? I always think about silly thinks like how I know I will be close with Karli when she is older and she will come visit me all the time with her babies. But for the boys, I will have to kiss the butt of some girl that probably isn’t good enough for my son, so she will want to come over all the time. Seriously think about it! Who do you visit more often… your parents right? Not your husbands. I think about crazy stuff like that all the time.
