K and CT came home last night and surprised the girls by arriving early. Both girls were quite happy to see them.
So what did Nana and Papa learn?
*Little Bug is not only fast, she is also persistent. The two main attractions: stairs and toilets.
*Bigger Bug really likes technology. We had to limit video viewing.
*Bigger Bug will disappear when she is upset, mad, or pouting. Nana had to hunt her down more than once.
*Sonic corn dogs and fries are a game changer. Things get done when Sonic is involved. (Corn Dog for Big Bug and fries for Little Bug.)
*Three adults are necessary to take two kids swimming. All hands were needed. Thank you, sweet sister-in-law and LuLu.
*Big Bug asked when she could have gray hair. I told her soon enough. She said she really wants it now. (We'll talk in about 20 years.)
*Little Bug is quite obsessed with the tennis ball hanging in their garage. (It tells K how far to pull in.) The little stinker has to hit it and send it swinging at least once every trip through the garage.
*Silly Dilly Duckling is a cute children's book the first and second time you read it. After 18+ times, I was tempted to burn it. (The Little Bug was obsessed.)
*Big girls sometimes need a little one-on-one time because little sis demands quite a bit of attention. Big girls also still need naps--even when they tell you they don't.
*Mainly, I'm not sure how K gets out of the house in the morning. There is so much baggage that comes with kids, I didn't have enough arms.
*Who am I kidding? I'm not sure where she finds the patience or time to accomplish anything. Just finding time to eat, sleep, or go to the bathroom is challenging.
*Given enough sleep (and wine!), Nana and Papa will recover. And then be ready to go again. Pretty sweet girls!
