surviving

Well, we've made it five days and five nights so far with five extra kids. They are age 9, 7, 5, 4, 2. Today, five is the lucky number. There haven't been any major incidents, just the occasional meltdown when the barbie motorcycle hasn't been shared for 2 minutes, the ice doesn't make it to the cup in time, someone cut in line for the water slide, someone didn't get the blue cup, bedtime, you know, the usual kid stuff.

I'm a little rusty, considering my 4 kids are 21, 19, 16, 9. But, it's all coming back to me now... you know, like riding a bike.

The 4 year old and I had an interesting conversation.

4 yr old: "You're old?"

me: "what?"

4 yr old: "Is you old?"

me: "uh... no.... not really. why?"

4 yr old: "gramma says that when you get old, you get purple things on your legs"

(((((sigh)))))

I must be old.
