Today is day 29 of the Slice of Life March, the writing challenge sponsored and run by Stacey and Ruth of "Two Writing Teachers". There are only two more days left - hard to believe. This month of writing has been a challenge at times but a blessing as well. It has reinforced in me the need to write. It has also opened me up to so many wonderful people. There has been so much honesty and such heartfelt posts. I feel much closer to several wonderful women.
We looked after my husband's son's 3 - almost 4 - year old. I had forgotten just how exhausting that can be. He arrived at 9 and his dad picked him up at 5. In between, we:
- played cars
-taught him how to do dominoes
-read several books
-made paper bunnies
--made paper Easter eggs
-answered at least a hundred "whys"
-fed him lunch and several snacks
-wiped his nose many times
-gave him one 2 minute timeout
-watched "Toy Story 3" (my first time)
-and listened to many stories
We collapsed on the couch after he left and could have napped!
