Us? Responsible?


I can hear ya’ll now, “Well, just where do you think you have been!?!” I know. You’ll never guess. Go ahead and try. Stuck at home in bed for a few days with some crazy bug causing everything ingested to be violently ejected from my mouth, and yes, my nose. Gross! Happy to report I am feeling like my old B Cup self and a lb or two lighter (although only for a day). So anyway, that’s that and I missed you too.

So after I rallied I ended up having a great weekend “playing parent” to the cutest little guy ya ever seen! Yup, two parents actually trusted my hubby and I to care for their most prized possession. I think we did an ok job if I do say so myself! Henry (you know, the tike from the blog Hank’s Dream) spent a good chunk of the weekend with us. We had a total blast (might have to try this parenting thing out for ourselves sometime) and I think his parents did too judging by their tired eyes and baritone voices when they picked him up on Sunday afternoon.

I was a little nervous when I picked him up he may not be sure about my supervision, but alas he couldn't’t get rid of his parents fast enough, “Mommy bye!” He travels like a champ! He swims like a fearless (seriously, in my 5 years of teaching swimming lessons, I have not seen anything like it) fish! He LOVED the slide (forward on his bum and backward on his tummy).

He picked up a cute chick! He FINALLY decided to submit and end his love/hate relationship with Miss Kato! He ate his weight in Chipotle, turkey/cheddar brats, pancakes, ice cream (sorry Mommy about the chocolate stained jammies), popsicles and ham sandwiches! He loved “running” with us in the stroller (and watching Miss Kato go #2…boys). He tooted and blamed it on Miss Kato (so it starts THAT young…again, boys). He slept like a rock and was an absolute angel (only scowled once when I had to have a little heart to heart with him). He learned how to call ducks. And my favorite part… he giggled not stop. And the saddest part (aside from when he had to go home)… I think I’m now officially playing second fiddle.

P.S. Just remember who said, "I don't care who in this house, but someone has to marry him!"
