Kelli needed someone to watch Georgia as she had to work Memorial Day weekend and Jason was farming. Kalissa said she’d watch her on Saturday and I volunteered for Sunday. I told Kelli being she was working 12 hours shifts, to just let Georgie stay overnight here. Kelli sputtered about that but finally gave in.
Georgia had been up some in the night over the last week so Kelli was nervous that she’d keep me up. I wasn’t worried. I could live through a long night if need be. After all, isn’t this all part of the reason I stepped back from childcare…to have more time with the grandkids?
She ended up going to bed on Saturday night at 9:30pm-ish. She woke at 5am. I put her in bed with me, got her back to sleep and then I got up and sewed. She slept until 7:30am.
Then she was on the go… Here she is hanging with Karl.
She was my little sewing buddy. She sat in the highchair and ate while I ironed….
She got in on some tent play too…see??
I didn’t actually make her a tent. I was ironing quilt backs and she thought it was all sorts of fun.
She ended up being so pooped from playing at Kalissa’s house with the boys that she went down for a nap at 9:30 in the morning and slept until 12:15pm…almost 3 hours. WOW.
Georgia and Rosie are big time buddies. Seriously, they totally love each other. This makes me so happy. Rosie didn’t nap yesterday unless Georgia was napping. It made taking care of Rosie a breeze.
Then at about 5pm, Georgia got fussy. Rosie jumped up on the couch and napped. Georgia looked like she might nap too. But she jumped down and was her busy self.
I picked up my cross stitch and went back to stitching while she played. About 15 minutes later she came over to my chair, put her head down on my legs and fell asleep. Yep, she fell asleep standing up. (she has Kramer’s ability to fall asleep)
I had the worst time manipulating myself out of the chair and not knocking her over but I was able to pick her up and put her in the crib. She slept for 50 minutes or so…and being I had to keep the house quiet so she could sleep, I stitched. Seriously, having her here was no work…all fun for me, Georgie and Rosie.
I have learned one thing, always volunteer to do the childcare for Georgia on the day after Kalissa had her. That way she’s pooped and will nap a lot!!
In fact, the next day I got to enjoy pooped Rosie. For all the napping time she missed on Sunday when Georgia was here, she made up for the next day sleeping every moment she could.
I wish I could nap as easily as Georgia and Rosie do…
