Unexpected Visit -- Total Exhaustion
How can an unexpected visit from my daughter, granddaughter, and two great-grandsons, one almost three years old, the other 13 months, lead to almost total exhaustion in just two hours??
We had enough advance notice to expand the dinner menu and add some child-friendly items--chicken nuggets and corn on the cob, but not enough time to childproof our house. Things which we didn't put away, but which were great attractions were a flashlight, ball of twine, DH's cane, and the cordless telephone, among many. Fortunately, our granddaughter came with lots of toys for them, but "new" things are always more appealing. Maggie, our cat, made a beeline for the bedroom and stayed there.
It was wonderful to see them --but also wonderful when they headed for home. Perhaps if we saw them more often, we'd "toughen up"! :>)
