Back to Raising My Own Children

My Dad and stepmom were in town last week and it was utter bliss … well for me anyway! I’m pretty sure it doesn’t count as a vacation for Bill and Ellen! My dad had a long list of things he wanted to do while he was here, which included:

  • 5 Guys Hamburgers
  • Lunch with Samuel at School
  • 2 meals at Popeye’s
  • Sonic
  • Birthday Shopping for the kids
  • Combined birthday party
  • Date night for Doug and Sarah (!)
  • Krispy Kreme
  • Movie Night with the boys
  • Steak Dinner
  • Chuck E. Cheese


If you know my dad at all, it’s not surprising that most of this list is food related! I’m happy to say we got the entire list done plus a lot of extras! My dad got up and made Samuel’s lunch and took him to the bus stop every morning. He also picked him up every afternoon. There were football games and practises, plus he changed almost all the diapers and did almost all the laundry. I cannot express how unexcited Doug and I were to get our kids ready for church on Sunday. I don’t know why my dad doesn’t want to live closer so that my kids can enjoy this bonding all the time!!

Thanks Dad and Ellen for an awesome week!
