Wow! My whole week has been thrown into a tailspin! I swear, I’ve got 100 things going at once–but everything took a back seat when 4 nephews and nieces needed me! (and my sister-in-law!)
11, 9, 7, and 4–and this morning I’m moving at the speed of—zero. Oh!–plus, we snatched up another niece who was visiting! I don’t think my sister-in-law was thrilled with my “loose” rules though. Hey, I’m not their parents–I’m their fun, favorite Auntie!!! (Revenge is never so sweet as getting back at a big brother by way of his kids!) At one point when I told them we were all going to be in trouble with “Mom” and she wouldn’t let me babysit again–they told me they would make a “petition” for me to come back every time! A petition…??!!
During school hours, when it was just me and Rachel, I teased that she needed a job–she defended, “but, I’m just a little kid!”
Auntie– “Yeah, but you still need a job!”
Auntie– “You could dooo….laundry!”
Rachel– “No! The maid does it!”
Auntie– “The maid?”
Rachel– “Yeah! Noah, Lukie, and Aleigha!” (at least she didn’t say her mom!)
Auntie– “They don’t do laundry– their job is school. You need a job too! What should be your job…?”
Rachel– “I’m just a kid–that’s my job…!” Then somehow she decided her job was to watch me! I thought I was watching her…?
She “tried out” several frames! Her distractions made the process take longer, but even more fun!
–I really liked this frame and did use it!
