This morning I traded 2 for 1! I traded a 10 yo girl for two grand kids! What a trade! That gave me three grandkids to chase today. :) Can you say LAP FULL?
Grand daughter was in my lap, older grandson joined her. Then she got down, until she discovered other grandson had taken HER place in my lap. So we had a lap full.
I believe it teaching responaiblity. That means chores. Today D9 had sweep kitchen. While others were washing dishes and cleaning cabinets D would position himself in their way and not move. That earned him stool time until they fninshed their part of the kitchen. Once they were done then he got to do his part.
Do you ever just know someone in Heaven is looking down smiling? That is these next few pictures. They kids are playing with blocks. Very special blocks! My mom made these blocks for HER gandkids! They are really scraps of wood left over from making turtal foot stools. She made and sold many many of them. She had many many of these half moon pieces of 2x6. Her grand kids, these kids daddies played HOURS and HOURS with them at her house. Then they were moved to our house. Where the boys continued to play with them for years. Our other kids played with them too, but they had been put away so they are "new" toys.
It is almost lunch time! Then three littles will all go down for a nap. I put the two boys in the same room. I do tend to hover until they shut their eyes. Usually they are so tired by nap time it doesn't take long.
