Daddy Gone – Day 2

by Kristi Van Dyk in

Well last night was rough, to say the least. Little Benjamin wasn’t super interested in resting. Grammy and Kayleigh were up several times too! And EVERYONE in the trailer was up and at ‘em by 6:30 a.m. (YIPEE!!). The good news, Kayleigh managed to catch herself up. The bad news, well, Benji STILL isn’t really interested in sleeping … (here’s to praying for miracles tonight). Somehow, despite the lack of sleeping, we did have quite a bit of fun today. Kayleigh’s highlights: * Watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on Grammy’s MacBook because the Disney Channel changed the schedule on us! * Playing with the 18 month – 3 year olds in the Toddler Nursery from 9:30 – 11:00 * Taking the world’s greatest nap (2.5 hours and having to be awoken) * Being roused from her deep sleep to Mommy saying, “Would you like to go to the pool?” The sleep is already gone from her eyes, “YES!!!!” * Swimming in the pool with Grammy and Mommy * Taking a walk after supper with Grammy and Mommy * Bath time and playing with blocks ….

Benjamin’s highlights: * Snuggle time in Grammy’s bed with Mommy (The ONLY way I could keep him quiet all afternoon) * Chillin’ with Grandpa poolside * Smiling after meals with Grandpa, Mommy and Grammy

Mommy’s highlights: * Watching the kids play at the pool * Having a homemade sugar free mocha this morning (and an unsupervised shower) :) * Lots of exercise * Food prepared and dishes cleaned; including all of Ben’s bottles all without my lifting a finger :) * A 6 oz sirloin from  Logan’s

Pictures I was able to snap:
