When the parents are away...

With everything that happened last week, I realized that I forgot to post about Claire and Julianne's visit with my parents while we were away in Miami. I never have to worry when my girls are with my parents. The girls love their mimi and papa. BTW, my mom used to be known as grammy but Julianne started calling her mimi all on her own so my mom is now mimi (just in case you were wondering). I really don't care what my parents do with the girls, they can spoil them rotten for all I care. That's what grandparents are for. I'm not one of those moms who makes a list of foods they'll eat, bathtimes, bedtimes, etc. I always tell them that as long as the girls are breathing when we get back, that's good enough for me. I want my girls to know the joy of being spoiled by their grandparents. My parents did not disappoint.

First order of business, an ice cream sandwich for Julianne. She LOVES them. She was first introduced to them by my parents back in February. She now loves an "ice cream sammich"


Is this the face of happiness or what?

Claire did a lot of this while we were gone
I told my parents that Julianne likes black beans. I failed to mention to drain and rinse them first. Oops!
This is Julianne sitting eating a grilled cheese and french fries and watching Elmo on my mom's portable DVD player while she eats. It doesn't get much better than that.
Here she is on my dad's lap watching Elmo again..papa would watch Elmo 500 times if that's what she wanted to do.
Thanks again mom and dad! These girls are so lucky to have you!

Cute! Grandparents are the best! My mom was Grammy too...but Hudson said Mimi and it stuck. I actually like it better! And I'm with you on the spoiling...my dad let Hudson have a milkshake at Rosemary's the day...before his sandwich even got to the table! Oh well!

So sorry about Maddy...losing a dog is really hard.
