Rainy Days and Shenanigans

IMG_0041I had the grandkids yesterday and it rained all day so nobody could go outside.I don’t know if rain affects them like it does me.I am always tired and looking for a place to snuggle up when it rains.I love to wrap up in a blanket with a good book and nap at intervals waking up to start over the same chapter.It seems the grandkids are a little laid back and this is what they looked like for a few minutes.

IMG_0043IMG_0045IMG_0042Pretty good,huh!

It seems they had time for other activities we never find out about until the next day.

Al’s alarm clock was not set on the same time and he was almost late for work.

I found a piece of pizza in a dump truck as I was putting away toys that were left on the upstairs steps.

A roll of toilet paper was in the baby bed.

It took me fifteen minutes to figure out why the TV set wouldn’t turn on.(This is a common occurrence and I never catch them at it.)

A pair of little pink socks were stuck in the couch.

Three desk drawers were open and one was on the floor in the spare bedroom.This explains why Collin went to bed clean and woke up with a dirty face that I couldn’t figure out.

The phone was again hung up backwards only in our bedroom this time.

People might get irritated with these little things but not me.If I catch them at anything they are made to obey and put things right and I have eyes in the back of my head, but I am not God.God is the only one that knows everything they do.Their imaginations are a wonder to see and I just laugh and laugh.

We played and the twins learned the song The B-I-B-L-E.I love to teach them all kinds of songs because they love to sing and hopefully their new song will help with all of the little criminal activities that go on.I sit them on our bar in the kitchen and they are like two tiny trained monkeys singing off key and loving every minute of it.Smiles prevail and love is everywhere.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh,rainy days with the grandbabies,I wish I could bottle it and sell it.I would be a millionaire.Not for the money,but to let everyone else share in this gift.There is an old saying—-If I would have known how great grandkids were I would have had them first.I know what they mean now and it is true and we will have another one in the next few months that I can’t wait to meet.I hope her mother is ready because you always have one kid that is just like you.I know she will be loved and I know she will be precious,but if she is anything like her mother she will be a free spirit.Get ready Leash for dolls in the toilet and Barbies in the hamper……………….. But don’t worry,Honey,just call and I will come,laughing and loving all the way.
