Don't want to sound like I'm gloating.....
« on: September 30, 2011, 02:07:04 PM »
My DD invited me to go with her to a judicial council meeting for a week in October.  The judges all want to see her baby (will be 1 Oct 14) and I'm going to be the nanny.  Of course, I'll be the worn out nanny when we get back.  She wears me out in just a couple of hours.  I am so looking forward to spending that much time with her.  I usually see her a couple of hours on the weekends.  Hope the weather is good enough to get her feet wet in the ocean.

Enjoy, FAFE. That's wonderful!

You know, I'm really getting a little worried about this.  Three of us in one room, I like to stay up late and read, etc.  Baby will need to be put to bed early and daughter is one of those people who's out like a light when her head hits the pillow.  I'm a lousy sleeper.  But, I am so looking forward to doing all the daily stuff with her.  Taking her to the beach, strolling her around.  Playing on the huge front porch of the hotel, etc. 

I will get through it tho.  Baby will be saying Fafe when this week is over.  LOL!

Lol.  No worries FAFE....lack of sleep can be made up the next week!  Baby and DD will be asleep and you can still read.  Get one of those little book light that attaches to the book (like a $1 at the Dollar Stores).

Pooh, I have a Kindle and a light.  I may have to sneak out to the lobby or something.  Or take an extra sleeping pill!  I'll manage for a couple of days though.

You'll probably be so exhausted from being the nanny all day you may be the first one asleep!

Shelby, you are probably right!  I am looking forward to it.  I just know my night time habits.
