We've had an unusual weekend for us. Since Wednesday night, we've had our youth director's little girl with us so they could go on a teen trip. She's a treat, let me tell you.
This is what it's been like at our house . . .
Little girl giggles
Hugs & kisses
Hugs around the knees
|Tiny dinner companion|
Naps (not just for her!)
A familiar place to sleep
McDonald's (Shhh! Don't tell Mommy!)
Little girl dresses
Sitting on laps
I had forgotten how much time little ones take. I also realized I'm much more patient now than I was 20 years ago (that makes me feel bad). I've realized that it's not the end of the world if it takes 30 minutes to unload the dishwasher because Somebody wants to "help" me. I've enjoyed having a companion for everything I'm doing. And her words! Oh my, they are entertaining!
Of course, she can also tell me what she's done when she doesn't smell so nice! ;)
It's pure joy to see her come running full tilt to give me a hug around the knees.
And climbing up in my lap and wrapping her arms around my neck? Be still my heart!
We'll hand her back over to her parents tomorrow, but we sure have enjoyed our little house guest this weekend!
What did you do this weekend?
