The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

My sister-in-law and my niece have been here this last I give you, the


*one night after I had finished tucking in the kids into bed, she had a plate of cheese and olives and a glass of wine waiting......whew hoo!

*she made pancakes and sausage for the kids this morning....I kind of got to sleep in....Hasn't that been my wish for the last few weeks??

*she bathed the kids and got them ready yesterday, Livi and I had to go to a birthday party. I so would not have made it in time without her help!

*she stayed with Will and a little friend while Livi and I went to the party!

*She unloads the dishwasher in the morning.

*I haven't felt like I needed to 'entertain' her and baby E!

The Bad:

*Not too much bad, Baby E cries a little but not too much.

The Ugly:

*The poopy diapers....not that i have changed one ! But that smell of them fermenting in the garage in 90+ degree heat. Livi has not had poop diapers for long enough for me to forget that smell!

Since I am talking about Baby E, here is a pic of her in a bow. You know since she is in Texas we had to make her a bowhead. I gave her all of Livi's bowbands. So now baby E can now clip any bow to a color coordinating band of most outfits. Now, once she speaks if we can get her to say "y'all" life will be good!

I hear you on the poops in 90 degree heat. Sweet Boy wears a Good Night to bed and usually wakes up in the morning with a poop. Even after dumping as much as I can in the potty, our garage stinks! Thank goodness today is Trash Day.

Glad you enjoyed your visitors.

I'm sure baby E will master the southern drawl in no time!

My sister came to my parent's condo the other day with her two little guys( 2 & 1) they both had little gifts with them. Had to open up the window because of the odor. She took the little gifts out to the trash bin when she left. Thank goodness.

I don't think you soon forget that smell. I'm just glad I don't have to deal with it anymore and expecially in 90 degree heat!

How much fun with your SIL, its great that you can enjoy adult conversation. Baby E is so adorable. Im sure she will master y'all soon.
Be careful in Texas, if you get enough of a southern twang, they will think you have orange power in your blood!!!

It's hard for me to smell those things, it has been 10 years for me! And "yall" is in the SC Dictionary too, what about that!!

Ahh! She is adorable.

Given that there are plenty more good points, than bad or ugly, I'd say that you had a great time.
