I have just finished a two week stint watching my Grandkids while their Dad was away on business. I am so pooped. My daughter would get them to school every day and I would have them after school until around 9pm every night. I am convinced now more than ever that kids are for the young! I forgot how completely alert you have to be at all times and how taxing it can be. Especially when I had worked an 8 hours shift before picking them up from school. Homework, making dinner, bath time, clean-up, baseball practice, ballet practice, sheesh! I am so thankful that I had children young. Now at 52, I am a young grandma of an 9 & 7 year old and can keep up with them and enjoy watching and being apart of all their activities.
At the end of the two weeks my Mom came into town for Easter. We spent a wonderful afternoon coloring eggs with my daughter Maureen and the grandkids, Keegan and Donovan. Maureen was so excited to try a new way to color the eggs. I took pictures of the process just in case the experiment turned out eggsceptional! Take a look.
Fantastic! Aren’t they beautiful. We even did this technique on some of the eggs the kids had colored the traditional way too. So much fun and fantastic eggs to hide on the following day. Give it a try next year, they are a beautiful!
Now, to start my week catching up at home with all the chores I missed for 2 weeks……… Cyn
