Magpie


We kept GBN1 yesterday afternoon and last night. We went to the park and McDonalds. She pretended to sail a boat while we stood on the fishing dock at the park. Ranger went for a swim in the pond. Later we flew a kite and fed the horses - still she was not tired. She was a Magpie imitating everything she heard. She chatters non-stop. I told her to be careful not to step in horse poop. She said she would hop over it. Toby said, "Kind of like hop-scotch, but it's hop-poop." GBN1 said, "Hop-poop!?" Thanks, Toby. When it got dark, we came in and painted. It was a good evening. Then she got up at 5:30.

She is a fun girl. I like her painting, she seems to like lots of water also.

Catherine said...

Whew...sounds like fun! Such fun to have this kind of time with grandchildren ... and then so nice to have Mom and Dad retrieve them too! :)

enjoy your Easter, Lou!

Busy is so funny. She must have you artist genes.

Becky said...

That is such a fun age for them to be! And they have so much energy. I used to wish I started the day with the energy Cody had left over.

Catherine, I think Kathy might show up here for Easter - should be fun.

Ashley is it a blond thing that they chatter and are so much fun?

Diva, she does use too much water.

Becky, I could still use Cody's left over energy.

Inquiries said...

You should know you are blond too. ;)

But I will give you one example if a brunette with tones of energy: Sarah Ann!

Sounds like an eventful time and fun. I like the Hop-poop, very original. Hope once the night quieted down, you could take a nice deep breath and some time for yourself...

I could use a lil bit of GBN1's excess energy over this way, please! ;-)

I agree with Catherine, as well... the best thing about grandkids is Mom and Dad (eventually) take 'em home. I remember my father telling me this just about 40 years ago... as The First Mrs. Pennington, SN1, and I were leaving his house.

ASW, there is something born in women that we do not sleep well with little ones nearby. I woke up all through the night making sure she was covered and still on her little bed.

Buck, you are right; one of the best things about grandchildren is knowing you can take a big dog nap after they go home. I will bottle up some energy and send it your way.
