No trip back to ND would be complete without a crazy/hectic, I-could-never-have-kids, no-sleep sleepover!
We painted our nails and shot a BB gun. Typical Sunday night, right? And as is now tradition, we did crafts. I always help Katherine with her glitter and painting and Roey helps Joey with his complex, detail-oriented car-making. Katherine also tried to go sledding down the driveway, but I think she was confusing that with our Christmas sleepover. Whoops!
Katherine had to take some medication before bed, so that would clearly fall under Roey's responsibilities, but I think Katherine sensed my discomfort of all things medical and yelled for me to do it. I asked her, "Would you rather have a nurse give you medicine or a librarian?" And she said, "Mary!!"
I brought everyone a little souveneir from New Orleans and when I gave Katherine the hippo, she said, "What else do you have?" But it grew on her apparently and she named it Diamond.
|What a patient little dog!|
Joey read us a goodnight story, Super Diaper Baby 2: The Invasion of the Potty Snatchers.
He gave us a little background, so we knew what was happening. It's so adorable to listen to him read. I took over reading when he was tired and there are tons of words spelled wrong and you can about guess the subject matter! I asked him why everything was spelled so strangely and he said, "Because it's written by 2 dumb kids." Fair enough, I guess!
