Yesterday was technically the last day of school, whoo-hoo! My mom taking advantage of the fact invited the girls to come spend the weekend with her. When Kailey was little she went through a stage of wanting to stay all the time, and has since outgrown the urge and is becoming more of a home body. If she does happen to stay she is usually calling to come home. Following in her foot steps Madisen is now going through the same thing and begs all the time to stay. So, as of Yesterday evening the girls are at Camp Mamaw & Papaw. Where the only motto is "Sure sweetie What-ever YOU want!" (something of which the girls take Full advantage of!) Pure example, Last night when I talked to Kailey at 9:00pm, she was on such a sugar high I could feel her bouncing through the phone line. Barely able to hold a conversation constantly giggling , she told me she had a piece of cake (knowing my moms slices it was more than I could eat!) and two Popsicles! O-Kay... ("Jason lock the doors, turn off the ringer, no matter What she is Not coming home tonight!") Did they not learn from the last time she stayed and was up till 2 am, wanting to come home? I can hear them now...Gee, I just don't know why she doesn't sleep over here? lol
Well good thing was we didn't hear a peep! They Claim, she slept all night and did fine. (I find that hard to believe!) But, Not my problem they should heed my warnings!
My mom, God love her, she endures a lot. (Even if most of it she brings on herself !) Poor thing this morning Madisen really gave her a run for her money;
My mom: (putting on face moisturizer in the bathroom)
Madisen: Mamaw your old!
My mom: Do you think so Honey?
Madisen:Well just look in the mirror, there!
My mom: (*Blink-Blink*)
Madisen: Look at you...your are wrinkled up, even your knees are Old! Are you going to be leaving to go on to heaven?
My mom: Well, I hope not anytime soon! (pulling on her neck) Do you think I need to have plastic surgery and get rid of this goose neck?
Madisen: Well, it does hang down!
I was laughing so hard my sides were hurting, when she told me this! Leave it to Madisen to bluntly point out the obvious. My mom was really feeling good about her self after that...
"You know I bet she does think I should already be in the grave! She's used to being around all young people at school and stuff, I bet she does wonder. Oh and don't worry she said she would keep my grave full of flowers when I die! "
So, anyways get this, 8am this morning on the phone when she telling me this, she say's "So, are you coming over today?"
Coming over?!! I'll be over on Sunday, UUhhh, My kids are at Camp Grandma! Uh Hello, I have a semi-quiet house, finally a little me time to get things done. Why would I want to come over?? (sigh)
Yet, I still have to explain myself to her with a feeling of guilt! Me explaining..."O-kay...Maybe?...but I have so much I could be doing! " So, although I'd rather not, guess who else is probably going to be at Camp Mamaw & Papaw's today?" So much for my mini Vacation before Monday's onset of my 24/7 Summer break with the kids! (Which I am looking forward too! Speaking of which I need to get planning!)
