Fun And Games

A drizzly Sunday and the boys have just left. All of us are sleepy and a bit at loose ends, I think. Owen was lobbying to be taken to see Frozen when they left but I think his mommy mostly wants a nap.

We had a good time with the boys. I slept with Owen which is like sleeping with a large, dense stuffed animal. You know he's there but he's not bothering you. Gibson, on the other hand, wanted to sleep with his Boppy and so he did and he kept one foot in Boppy's side all night which does not make for restful sleep. They woke up early for them and by the time nine o'clock had rolled around, there had already been picture-making and pancakes. By the time their parents got here, there was a fort and various Wii games being played. Gibson is completely back to loving his Boppy above all others and he wasn't out of the man's lap for longer than a minute or two at a time.

And so here we are and it's quiet again. As we walked back into the house after the ritual hugging-and-kissing good-bye, Mr. Moon said, "It's gonna take a couple of days to recover."
"It always does," I said.

Here's a picture I took last night when there was a post-bath viewing of Pete's Dragon. 

It wasn't too long after that that Owen told me we had to turn the movie off and that I needed to go away so he could fall asleep. We turned the movie off and everyone left the room and he fell asleep. He's a big boy. 

It might be time to fall asleep again. 

Rainy Sundays. Why fight it?


  1. Snuggling with grandbabies is one of my favorite things. Unfortunately since my two oldest moved to Orlando, I don't get to do it as often. I don't think I will ever get used to them living away from me, but I am thankful that I still have my youngest grandson here and I get to keep him every day during the week.

  2. Bobby looks exhausted but Gibson looks like he is in heaven cuddling up to him. The picture of you with Gibson the other day and this one are keepers. Well, they all are... Sweet Jo

  3. "Post-bath viewing" snapped childhood memories into clear focus for me. Glad you enjoyed them babies.

  4. A child who knows when it's time to sleep is a wise child indeed!

    Those jammies :) So cute.

  5. Lois- Quite frankly, I'm not sure I could handle five days a week care for my grands. After one full day of it, I'm pretty tired. You're a better woman than I! But Lord, if they moved away...I can't even contemplate that.

    Sweet Jo- That child sticks to his grandfather like he was velcro.

    Nancy- Owen said actually suggested that his grandfather and I put on our pajamas too. We told him we were in very comfy clothes which were just like pajamas and they were.

    Jo- He was like, "Uh, I'm a big kid now. I go to sleep by myself."

  6. Aww. Well, at least Owen knows when he's tired! Sounds like the perfect rainy Sunday. :)

  7. Steve Reed- It was mighty okay with me.

  8. Nice. Nothing like a rainy Sunday to sleep and cocoon.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
