I just got in from my babysitting gig with Pete and RE-Pete and boy did we have another fun-filled night!
When I first got there, the boys were both sitting down to dinner so after mom left, I joined them. BBQ chicken sandwiches for them, and another one of these beauties for me!
Afterwards, we headed outside to make good use of the…wait for it…upper EIGHTY degree weather we had today…ugh, I worry what’s in store for us come August! :-/
Just monkeying around!
Then while I pushed Pirate RE-Pete higher AND HIGHER on the swing, Pete shared with me a few of his masterful skills…
Hanging upside down…
Spinning in circles until gravity takes over…
Who knew he was such a gifted yogi! 😉
Then what started as a simple game of kick-the-ball morphed into full on tag! I seriously have NO idea how I didn’t lose my
Unfortunately, Heather’s endurance isn’t quite what it used to be so I was MORE than grateful when Pete asked if we could go back inside and play a few minutes later.
And I may have a sweet spot for Legos, but there is another thing I cannot say no to…and that my friends, is playing CARS!
I can remember how much I wanted one of these road rugs when I was younger but instead I was forced to use the lines in the linoleum on the kitchen floor! 😉
I was pretty happy and content “vroom-vrooming” my little race car hither and thither when all of a sudden, out of nowhere, came the most horrific sight you will ever see…
Be afraid, be VERY afraaaaaaaaaaaaaaid!
After total annihilation of the city’s streets and one innocent passersby (a lone astronaut was harmed in tonight’s events…but it’s ok, I hear he’s gonna pull through!), I was left to ponder
Maybe it really ISN’T easy being green!
After some time in thought, we cleaned up the aftermath, toted the astronaut to the hospital, and then quieted down with a little light reading.
All the boys’ idea…LOVE it!
And um, hello?…Coolest book ever!
Bathtime was a hoot…Pete and RE-Pete were too excited to see my made skills in soap-made mohawks 😉
And then we picked out some super hero PJ’s, messed up our hair, and brushed some teethies before settling in for some quiet time waiting for mom and dad to make it back from Bible study.
It may seem like just another night to you mom’s out there, but when you don’t normally get to spend time with the humans of the short variety, it’s the little things that make you smile.
Like when Pete cracked up and about fell out of his chair at the dinner table after I told a really bad joke…
Or when they looked up at me and called me “Miss Heather”…
And especially when they hugged me goodnight!
I’m smiling as I type this!
Did you know that during the Jurassic Period, dinosaurs grew to be their greatest size?
Got any random trivia knowledge to share?
What was your favorite playground game in school?
I always loved Red Light, Green Light!
They are so adorable!! I bet they are a handful but so fun!!!
My son used to have those hulk hands! haha!
See you SOON! <3
Definitely handful…but in a good way! They are endlessly entertaining!
Ahh, I’ll see you TOMORROW!!!! Eeeeee!
You are going to make a great mother if you want to have kids! I loved babysitting – I could act goofy/silly (ummm, being me) without eye rolling or being called an idiot! They thrive on silliness!
No trivia that I can think of right now but that book looks neat!
Aww, thank you Missy! I really hope so! And yes, I love the goofy/silliness…aka, just being me! 😉
It looks like you guys had a blast!!
Random knowledge: Last night I went to dinner with a geeky group of mechanical engineers, and as I ordered my hummus and veggies, one of the guys said, “Hmm. What is in hummus? Supposedly it has a really good (something sciencey here) that offsets heavy metal poisoning, should that happen.”
Um really? And apparently it’s better than eating charcoal when it comes to alleviating most poisons. Pass the hummus please.
Oh my gosh, you totally have to make that guy your “phone a friend” should you ever find yourself on some sort of trivia contest! Learn something new (and sometimes incredibly odd) everyday, huh? 😉
aww those little boys are so adorable!
they’re just like my little cousins 🙂
I had one of those map rug things and it was awesome! I used to make my dolls walk up & down them 🙂
