THIS IS AS REAL AS IT GETS

So last night I baby sat not one but both of my grandies all by myself...

I gave two two and a half year olds dinner, a bath and got them both to sleep by ten thirty... By myself...

The old girl's still got it...

They slept on an air mattress and I slept on the couch next to it so I could monitor the progress of going nite nite...

Jax went first and quickly, Auriana not so much... She fought the good fight for about thirty minutes or so, and just before she dropped off she raised her hand out to me in the shadows and I reached to touch it lovingly...

I then realized she had shared something with me...

A booger.

OK, that's just beautiful & hysterical & REAL!!! Love it girl...the best of life is the unexpected, right?
But also good for your Granny, 2 ~ 2 year olds at one time, by yourself??? I think I might not have made it. I'm sure I'd rise to the occasion...but, I just might not have made it. BRAVO, well done & it looks like your baby picked a special one just for YOU! LOL ;)
Hugs,
Susie
