Cas gave Liz, as a birthday present, a trip to The Bahamas. That left me on auntie duty for the weekend, which actually started Thursday night. I went over to spend the night Thursday so that the kids would not wake up alone Friday morning, since the flight left pretty early. Once Sra. Margot arrived I was off to TC for work, but around 5ish I headed back to get the kids and launch the weekend off. And a great launch it was too.
Then it was off to Blockbusters, where the kids chose some DVDs to take home. After that it was dinner, movie, and popcorn. We ended going to bed past 11 pm, but I guess that was ok, being the weekend and all.
Saturday everyone woke up on the late side, meaning there was no 6 am “Je–Ji it’s morning, lets eat. Get up!” like on Friday. We had breakfast, watched morning cartoons and got ready to head out. Nick was picked up by his buddy Daniel and off they went to the School’s Spring Fair, while Soph and I lounged a bit longer, took a slow bath and had lunch at home.
Once ready, we girls headed out for some shopping. I needed to find some sweats for exercising, which was a failed mission (if you any recommendations, please send them my way) and then headed to the fair, where they had games, rides, food, and overall kid fun.
First up was a vintage type of ride which consisted of turning cars set up in a bus/truck like vehicle. I thought this was actually kind of cool in an old fashion sort of way, and Sophie loved it.
We had dinner, read some books, listened to some music (Queen, mind you) and it was off to bed. When they were down for the night I went to watch TV and of course the remote was missing, Who knows where they hid it, but it’s typical isn’t it? Soon after that Liz and Cas where back from their trip, and I was off.
It was a very nice weekend with the kids. Less troublesome than I thought it might be. I think the difference this time was that I had no work whatsoever pending over the weekend and could totally give my time, attention and energy to the kids and whatever they wanted to do. The only bad thing is that with all that sugar consumed, I have about 4 more pounds than what I started with. This week a new regime needs to be taken on, or I will never be ready for bikini season!
