What's your name?

What's your name?
Ask me again and I'll tell you the same.
As usual, on Friday I had Maggie's girls
 but I also had Annie's kiddos
since she was in sunny California on Beachbody business.
I stayed at Annie's so the big kids could ride the bus home.
Late afternoon, the 2 bigs had gotten off the bus,
snacks were eaten and they were told to toss their trash.
I was laying on the couch with Ev and  Caroline
reading story books.
Aubrie was in the recliner coloring.
Ollie was napping.
 Penelope was playing 
in the adjacent kitchen
in the cabinet where the kids' plastic tableware is kept.
To say Penelope is busy, is an understatement.
She is a whirling dervish most of the time.
I say she is a baby terrorist...
always leaving mass destruction in her wake.
To the havoc, she constantly says "ah-oh"
So...I let her play in the cabinet.
It was making her happy and she was sitting still.
Next thing you know, Maggie walks in from work and says
"Mom! Are you kidding me?"
"Look at Elle Pea!" 
I leaned up to see this...

Well, I at least I am free daycare.
I never claimed to be good. 


  1. The memories these grand-babies will have of you are precious and priceless...messy, but priceless!

  2. I say "Free" ALWAYS trumps "Good", but I guess what matters is what Maggie says...

  3. But she looks so innocent! Obviously she takes after her grandma! Precious. Ann

  4. Annie and I have the same decorating style: I can just tell. Not that I actually decorate in my decorating style, or at all.

    Can't complain when it's free! :)

  5. That is so sweet and cute - you will remember her for sure - and hey you are free.

  6. Oh, my goodness. Well, someone was having a good time.

  7. Oh my gosh, classic!
    I call Tobin our tiny terrorist. he never sleeps, he always runs. luckily I have the chairs that are raised, not average chair height. Now I just have a great dane to ward away from my counters. Needless to say, food is scarce in my kitchen. it's all tucked away and hidden from big dog noses.

  8. I always say that good help is hard to find. If the kids are alive when I get home, I am happy. Such a cutie, she is!

  9. LOL!!
    You just can't be bothered by a little chocolate pudding - that's how you roll!

  10. OMG.......that cracked me up!!! Too cute!!!

  11. Suh weet!!! Looks like life as usual round these parts... I'd hire ya in a second!

  12. Coming back to be sure you're OK. Missing you lately ??????

  13. So fun! She was having a GRAND time!

  14. Hello there kiddo . . . Haven't heard much from you lately. Hoping all is ok with you and the family. Thinking about you in prayer:O) xo

  15. hey friend, it seems to me you have fallen off the face of the earth. i hope you can crawl back on and that your world is ok. no pressure, just concern.


Thanks for reading my blather. I read every comment. They make my heart happy!
