Last year, we watched our sweet missionary friends' kids while they went to Bulgaria for a couple of weeks. This year, they are in Africa for two weeks. I talked a little about last year here.
Seriously, I love these kids. Even though there are 6 of them now with their teenage niece living with them, they are fun to have around.
We're all geared up for it. We've got the rules posted on the wall, the 3 strikes you're out poster on the wall, the morning and evening schedule poster out there... I think we've been watching a little too much super nanny. But, the response has been great. Last night and this morning, they kept looking at the schedule posted on the wall to make sure they were doing things in the right order. hehe... we'll just see if that lasts through the week.
We turned our china cabinet into a dresser to hold clothes. We dug out all the plastic cups we could find. We staggered the bedtimes just a little.... we shoved the dining room table over to the corner of the room... and we're off to a good start.
Each day we get them ready and take them to a babysitter while we go to work. Tomorrow is my day off.... now that might be interesting. My strategy is going to be "bribes" and "get out of the house".
Heth... want to meet at McDonalds for lunch?
