Visiting Grandparents is always fun. My kids have never really gotten to know their grandparents because we live so far from them. The last couple weeks before PCS-ing, we decided it would be a good idea if the kids and I stayed in Grammy & Papa’s trailer, so hubby could finish making repairs to our house, and get it rented out. My kids are loving it here, except for bedtimes.
They love that there is a dirt pit right near the house. If we let them play outside, you can guarantee that is where they are headed. When mommy is mean and won’t let them play in the dirt, there is a rock path that Blue Eyes loves to jump from rock to rock. Grammy & Papa have chickens too! Blue Eyes loves to watch them and sometimes he gets to collect the eggs, although if he helps, there is a chance they will not make it to the house. He has a tendency to drop them. He also loves Aunty Bing, and Uncle Giant. They are the first people he asks for every morning. Snow White loves the dirt as much as Blue Eyes does. She is getting so independent, and man does she have my temper. It’s going to be a rough road helping her learn to control it. We can be mad all we want, but throwing fits isn’t going to happen! Snow White also loves that Aunty Bing picks her up and dances all over the house with her. Sometimes Snow White will go over to Aunty’s legs and cry, “Dan Dan Dan” until Aunty picks her up.
The kids are missing daddy. I don’t blame them. We did this short separation to get the rest of our move in order, but we all miss daddy a lot. It’s not just the kids either. Hubby’s dog is being a royal pain in the neck. He has an attitude, and when he’s not happy he likes to shred the trash, or open the fridge. It’s a good thing my parents fridge is too high for him to reach.
