Morgan & “Mom”
My mom came up with the idea of heading to the beach to visit with Erika and Chance before heading back to the freezing cold, snow-laden Illinois…. who could blame her? I’m still trying to convince her there is no better place to live than the Deep South. The 76 degree weather today and sunshine will hopefully help me with my persuasion. They got 4 inches of snow at home over the weekend… who would want to go back to that? Anyway, we’ve had an absolutely wonderful time and Morgan and Paige absolutely adore “Mom” (as they call her). Morgan has slept with her everynight since “Daddyboy” (their name for my dad) left. When she decided to go to the beach before heading home she thought it would be only appropriate that she take the 2 crumb-crunchers with her. I argued a little (b/c I wasn’t sure she knew what she was in for) but in the end she won and they headed out this morning for their BIG adventure. She has a big car with DVD players so hopefully the hour & 45 minute trip will fly by and the girls will behave. Once they get there she may change her mind and put them back in their car seats and bring them home. We’ll see. They’ve been gone a few hours and the house is quiet and I’m wondering what it was that I did before I had children. So far, I’ve showered (by MYSELF and didn’t hurry), ate lunch with my husband (in PEACE & QUIET) and then decided I’d sit in a rocking chair (WITHOUT A CHILD IN MY LAP) on the back patio and soak in the warm sun! What a treat it has been so far. She didn’t say when she was returning… we packed 3 outfits and I can only imagine she won’t be gone for more than a day or two! For now, I’m savoring every minute of it… while listening to the 4 dogs we are house-sitting ferociously bark at the neighbors & I’m not doing anything to stop it! 🙂
All geared up and ready for the trip. Morgan packed her “own suitcase” (a backpack) full of dollhouse furniture. Maybe she thought MommasSissy would help her with a new design scheme!?
And they’re off!!!
