I did NOT predict that my parents would surprise me with a visit yesterday. I was sitting on the window seat in the kitchen watching the kids play when the back door opened and it was my Mama! I was so happy to see her. I didn't know they were going to stop in Nashville on their way home from visiting our family in Alabama. They were going to my brother's baseball game (he coaches in a neighboring county) and spending the night at a resort here, but they didn't tell me. So it was a very nice treat for me and the kiddos to have them for a couple of hours. A welcome diversion right in the middle of Spring Break week. And they brought Webkinz for Liam and Connor, which was perfect timing because they had JUST asked for them this week when they discovered that their other Webkinz had expired. Thanks Meme and Pepaw!
Maybe it's the power of the sunglasses. You know, the new glasses that Jack just HAD to go to the mall (bleck) to buy and then all the kids just HAD to spend their OWN money to have a pair too... well, maybe I paid for Meg's, but the rest of the kids definitely paid me back for their $7 worth of cool! Nothing says Spring Break at home like watching TV in your new shades!
But even super heroes need their rest. A long day of perfect harmony takes it's toll, even on Super Man. That, I could have definitely predicted!
