Out of the mouth of babes!!

I have had no time to work on my chairs this week, I've had two days to myself in the last two weeks and they were spent running errands and cleaning!  

I've been watching the grandchildren a lot so my time is precious.

I love being there for my grandkids, I learn so much from them for sure, I seriously think they should run the country! 

Yesterday I was with my 3 yr old grandson, Colin and 7 year old Ryen. They're both so smart and I never know what's going to come out of their mouths. 

I fed them at noon and Ryen (who is a girl by the way) had a pretty good size lunch, after which she asked if she could have an apple. Of course I gave her the apple, but about 1/4 of the way finished she said she was full and couldn't eat anymore and threw it away. 

An hour and a half later she texted me (yes, thank you aunt Cici for teaching her how to text!!!) and asked for a snack.

This was that conversation:
Ryen: "Can I have a snack?"
Me: "You can't be hungry!"
Ryen: "How do you know?"
Me: "Because you had a peanut butter sandwich, two breadsticks, and 5 saltine crackers, AND you threw away a good apple!" (She picked out her lunch BTW, she's a carb-o-holic:/) 
She started sending me Emoji's of angry faces!! 

Me: "I'm sorry you are upset."

We went back and forth sending texts for quite awhile, her begging and me saying she could wait til 3:00.

Ryen: "Can I please have at least one LIFESAVER so I don't (then she inserted an Emoji here with criss cross eyes)!! (How did she know that means your dead?!?)
Me: "If I give you one Lifesaver will you live?"
Ryen: "Yes"

I gave her one Lifesaver and at 3:00 she got her snack:)

Ah yes! I love spending time with these kids! I love what they come up with!

My daughter and her family are going to Disney for 10 days.....10 DAYS!! I took them to the airport this morning. I HOPE to get as much done as I possibly can while they're gone since I won't have to be a caregiver for those grandkids for 10 whole days!  

I do, however, have my grand dog "Penny" for 10 days.....

and she can be very needy:(

I promise to get back to those chairs as soon as I can.
