Spending three days with my grandchildren was exhausting! But it was also priceless! There are a few things that you forget when you have a house full of preschoolers. Here are just a few -
- to go to the bathroom.
- to sit down, anywhere.
- how to clean up, toys are everywhere.
- they give compliments differently. My favorites this time were - "I'm going to marry you," and "Here, you can have one of my guns." The sloppy kisses and uninhibited hugs are pretty amazing too.
- boys and girls play differently from each other. I know this in theory, but nothing prepares you for it until it's experienced.
Playing balls was so fun! Life lessons were learned after all the balls were left outside over night and our dog ate them (not every piece of them, but a piece out of all of them.)
This is the first time that Susannah and Abigail finally learned to fall asleep together. I see many nights of sleepovers and giggles happening.
This picture explains it all - boys play differently than girls. I didn't tell Josiah to find a gun, he just did.
The sofas became launching pads, the pillows landing pads, the rest of the house became every imaginable place in the universe.
