While the hubs and I were gone last week in San Francisco and Hawaii, my wonderful (and very brave) mom watched all four kids!
Since we didn't have to worry about the kids:
We walked along the beach...
We ate amazing food while watching the sunsets...
There's nothing relaxing about being around four small children! They are loud, whiny, needy...and fun, silly, and loving. I could come up with dozens of adjectives to describe them - but relaxing would not make the list!
Especially last week.
The first time we called to talk to the kids and see how everything was going we found out about an 'incident' involving Henry's head and my mom's front tooth. Guess who won? Sadly, part of my mom's tooth was knocked out! Her response was pretty amazing: "I've always wanted dentures. I guess I'll just go get a fake tooth!" I think she got it fixed this week.
Then, later in the week we called from Hawaii and found out about another incident. This time it involved Henry once again (why do all of the terrible things that happen in our house involve him??). Henry pushed Isa off the couch and fractured her collar bone. She is doing much better but sported a sling for a little while.
