The kids got home from school and immediately the garage door went up and bikes and balls were taken out. Within half an hour my yard was full of neighborhood kids running around having a great time.
I felt bad when at 5:00 the fun had to end and the yard had to be picked up.
We had practices to go to.
Garrett had baseball practice, Tyler had to get to Wrestling, Zach had to be picked up from his after school practice, and we all needed to eat a little something before we left.
Four hours later we all met up again at the house.
I was tired and just wanted to relax on the couch and watch American Idol. Until I heard these words.
Mom, are you ready to go?
Go? Go where?
Samantha looks at me exasperated and says "Don't you remember"? No. I say.
We have to go to Walmart and pick up the supplies for my Sugar Baby. Sigh.
You see, her sixth grade class is reading James Dobson's Preparing For Adolescence. As part of the class each student has been assigned a sugar baby (5 pound bag of sugar) which they are to carry around for a week and care for at all times.
She had to have her Sugar Baby in class the next morning.
Off we went to Walmart at 9:30 p.m.. Seriously, this was really the last place I wanted to be going. My nice comfy couch was SCREAMING my name.
Now, of course, being a girl Samantha was not happy to just carry around a plain old bag of sugar.
Her baby had to look good.
So, are you ready to see the first pictures of my first Grandchild? Samantha's dad and I are just so proud.
Isn't she just precious? She is lovingly wrapped in pink duct tape, with a pretty little hat and bow. Samantha has also decided that her baby will use a pacifier. So sweet.
Here's a pic of mother and daughter. Look who found the other pacifier in the 2 pack? Her eyes lit up like a long lost friend had finally returned.
I am allowing her to play with it this morning. Then, IT WILL GO INTO THE TRASH. I don't want to go through that again.
So, basically, we had another crazy day in the Laundry household. To be honest I wouldn't want it any other way. I'm so thankful for each of my children. I'm thankful that they are healthy and happy and able to participate in sporting activities. I truly feel so blessed.
I don't want to make you in the east feel bad or anything, however, this was the temperature outside this morning at 8:00 a.m..
Paige and I are off the the park to enjoy it while it lasts.
