The Beauty Of Living Near Family

Rob called today around lunch time; he has four tickets to tonight's Cardinal's game. We tossed around ideas of another couple to invite, and he agreed to call his parents to see if Grandma would come over to get the girls to bed.

Not long after that, it hit me that although E1 has art class and E2 has a dinosaur class tomorrow neither one has to be up too terribly early. THEY could be our other couple! I got a message back to Rob with my idea and he agreed. I told him I was fine with E3 spending the night with his parents, or we could pick her up on our way home because she would go right back to sleep. Once again, he said he'd get in touch with his parents. By 1:15 p.m. it had been settled.

Rob: two old girls now going to baseball game with us, can
E3 spend the night?

Grandma: Would love to have her. She brings great joy to us.

Aww... super fun times for all! E1 and E2 get to go the ball game and E3 gets grandparents' undivided attention!

I'll bet good times were had by all! I so wish my family lived closer...they are on the coasts, I'm in the middle...makes quick visits an impossibility.

Living near family is the BEST when it comes to the free babysitting. The grandparents love it, the kids have fun and the parents get a break. It's such a win-win for everyone!

Yay for Grandma; hope you and Rob and the two older Es had a great time!
