Damien's other grandmother called last night and asked me to keep him today while Mike (Damien's other grandfather) and Tiffany (Damien's mother) saw doctors. He got here about 9:30 this morning and stayed until 3pm. We had a real good time playing with his toys. We played Mario on the Wii and played with his cars and played Mario and did I mention that we played Mario? We wore the Mario game out today. And he can't play by himself - he needs Mamaw to get him thru the hard parts. Unfortunately, Mamaw needs help too. It didn't make any difference; we had fun anyway. He really makes me feel my age.
I took him across the street to Jeff's yard and let him play on the swings but he really wanted to get in the pool. It looked nice and clean so I let him go in. He loved playing with all the pool toys and had no fear of the water.
I really enjoyed having him with me for the day but he wore me out! When he left I stretched out on the sofa and actually fell asleep! I awoke a few minutes later to the sounds of one of the cats upchucking. After cleaning up the mess I decided to put dinner off until later. When Richard came in he said just order pizza but I didn't feel like pizza. We ordered sandwiches from Domino's (because they deliver) and they were really good. I think we will get them again.
