As I’ve mentioned, my in-laws are local so they watch our kids sometimes. It rocks.
The kids love going to their house, especially when they get to spend the night.
When they return home I always ask what they did. My in-laws say something like “We took them to the park and then Hunan Taste and then they went to bed.”
But when I ask Crappy Boy what they did, he says they let him drink coffee, stay up all night and eat ice cream for breakfast. And when I ask Crappy Baby, he says he fought off a dragon with his pirate sword. And also drank coffee.
Last week they came to pick the kids up. As they were walking out the door, I overheard:
Whatever. At least it isn’t coffee.
