As a result of our childcare provider getting sick last week, we had to call my Mom & Dad to come and watch the kids from Tuesday to Friday. It was really great that they could come because it gave Melissa a chance to finish her major essay in her stats course which was due at the end of the week. We did not tell the kids that Mama & Papa were coming so that it would be a surprise for them.
The weather last week was gorgeous so they got to take the kids out for bike rides and spend some time enjoying our new deck. At the end of the day, you would think that the kids might want to spend a little time with their Mom & Dad, but most nights we lost out on storytime to Mama & Papa. It was great having them here.
