Papaw Rod and Aunt Pat's Adventure

Well, yesterday was a very eventful day in the Fuller household. Papaw Rod and Aunt Pat survived their first attempt at babysitting the Fuller Children, AND SURVIVED!! They were both exhausted last night after eating dinner at 8:30pm and fell in bed just in time to get up and do it all again today! Oh yeah, about dinner at 8:30....me and my big mouth....again....
After picking up the kids from Karen's on Wednesday, I was being nice, or so I thought at the time, and asked her if she, Matthew, or Mark needed flu shots. I offered to bring one home from the office and give them on Thursday...I didn't know at the time that Rod and Pat were coming to keep the kids and I wouldn't have to go to Karen's and get them (which is 20 more minutes out of my way). She and Matthew needed them as well as some of the other parents and kids, so being the NICE person that I am, I said OK. Long story short, I had to go to Karen's yesterday anyway to be the mean doctor and give flu shots to several. After carrying on a conversation with Karen.....for a loooooooong time, I went home to find that Caroline was screaming in her bouncy seat and Pat was doing all she could do to please her. As soon as she saw me coming, she smiled instantly and knew that DINNER had arrived...she is such a mommy's girl!! As I was feeding her, Rodney came in with Terri and Tom McGraw to look at the basement door that has leaked since we moved in and to discuss realtor options for the house. So dinner was postponed again even later. Once again, long story short, we opted for pizza that was delivered at 8pm and finally took our first bite at 9pm. Caroline fell in her bed at 830 and Collier was PUT in his bed at 1030...needless to say he was not happy! He wanted to stay up longer and play with his trains....he probably had too much sugar and pop if the truth be known! Anyway, the weekend is fast approaching and who knows what we will be getting into....
I am sure there will be something funny to include on my Monday entry.....

  1. This is such a great idea. Only moms know what their kids needs are most of the time. I enjoy reading your daily events.
