Yesterday I picked WP1 up from Auntie's house. He stayed overnight with me. We both are trying to get over a stomach virus.

KZ1 and KZ2 (32114)

I had my Z's over yesterday. Their great-grandma is in the hospital.

My Gems are Sick

Two of my gems have a stomach virus or something has them throwing up. I have WP1 again. He's not going to school. This is day three for him. I'm going to try to get some work for him, so he's not so far behind when he goes back.

Two for One

Today I will have WP1 and WP2. They will be here with me until nine tonight. Their dad has to play at Stapleton's Church tonight. WP1 is still not feeling well. He has another stomach virus. This is his second day and he's missing school. WP2 is a handful and you have to give him your undivided attention. He's a busy rascal.

Being Available

I'm available to you, use me Lord. That just popped into my head as I thought about myself being available for my family. WP1 is coming this morning he got sick and won't be going to school. His mom is going to pick him up and take him to the doctor. He's been sick off and on this school year. I wish I knew what was happening to him. So he's here laying down resting. I think his little body is just tired. He goes back and forth between parents. It's a blessing that he can withstand all of this movement. I know he loves his parents but maybe he needs a break from this co-parenting situation. Just my thoughts of course! I always enjoy having him with me. If I wasn't so busy I would keep him all the time and let him visit his parents on the weekends. I know I have some nerve. Later on today I'm picking up KZ1. He has a half day of school today. I know KZ1 is going to be so happy to see WP1. They had a good time together. KZ1 is such a thinking. I just love his logic. He and WP1 were doing some mental math. WP1 asked him how much was two plus two, and he told him. Then WP! asked him how much was two times two, and KZ1 told him. Then out of the blue KZ1 said, "if two plus two is four and two times two is four, why is ten plus ten twenty but ten times ten is a hundred." So WP1 tried to explain it to him and then I used paper and pencil to explain even further. KZ1 always comes up with somthing that you wouldn't think he would be thinking about. He's the thinker!

WP2's Overnight

I didn't have time to blog on Friday, but WP2 can for an overnight visit. I am always glad to see him; although he requires all of you undivided attention. He doesn't like the dark. I turned off the lights and he had a fit. I had to keep a small light on until he went to sleep. I'm not sure what he saw or heard that has him afraid of the dark. He's still my little rascal.

KZ2's turn . . .

Today I have KZ2 with me. He loves goldfish. I try to have at least two bags but I forgot to buy some. He's playing with blocks and watching The Magic Schoolhouse on his Leap Pad.

My Gems . . .

One of my gems is with me today. I'm watching WP2. His grandpa is conducting a funeral service today, so I'm the backup sitter. I don't mind being backup. I'm glad to be of service when I can. He's still asleep. WP2 is my little rascal. He can be so mischievous. He has a certain way of turning is mouth when he's being mischievous. You just gotta love him.

Gym again . . .

I watched WP2 today for about two and a half hours. He slept the whole time he was with me. Boy was he tired.

A Night with WP's

I was with my two of my grandsons tonight. The oldest and the youngest ones. WP1 stayed in his room. He was too busy watching a video, and of course WP2 was asleep. His dad woke him up before he left for work. WP1 came downstairs to eat, so I got to say hello. WP2 played on his drums set and we watched the Baby channel. Oh, I forgot to mention that Aunt Fee was with me. When it was time for WP1 to go to bed. I went upstairs to make sure all electronic devices were off and that he was in bed. WP2 went with me. I didn't read him a story but he said his prayers and then I always sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star to all of my grandsons. His brother gave him a hug and I kissed his brow. WP2 turned off the light and off we went back downstairs.

Honoring KZ2

We are celebrating KZ1s birthday today. He had a TMNT theme. I forgot to wear green, but anyway it was GREAT! His mom really knows how to create a party.
