Potty Girl Rose

So as you can read in the post below, we are babysitting our friends' 4 kids this week. Their mom has great blogging skills capturing the funny moments she experiences with them. So here is a small attempt to continue in her absence.

Rosie is their 4 year old daughter, who amazingly still naps.

Monday Rose wakes up early from her nap.
She comes out of her room.

Me: Rose, are you gonna go potty?
Rose: yes.

She goes into the bathroom leaving the door open (I'm used to it, Ashby is potty training)
It had snowed the day prior.

Rose: I think it should snow again. Snow is white and cold. It's melting today though.
Me: You're right Rosie.
Rose: I'm Smart!
Me(chuckling): Yeah, you're good at figuring things out Little Rosie.
Rose: you mean, Potty Girl Rose.
Me: what?
Rose: I'm Potty Girl Rose.

so cute

a Week at the Wheelers

About a month ago, a friend named Zina Wheeler (pronounced Z-eye-na) asked me if Ryan and I would watch their kids when they went on a week long trip to Hawaii. After some thought we said yes. So Dean and Zina left last Saturday for Hawaii and come home this Saturday. We stepped in as babysitters and house sitters on Sunday morning at 9 AM. Yeah, and our ward at church meets at 11AM! So luckily their grandpa had them feed and the girls had gotten themselves dressed. Sacrament was a bit hard, but we made it through and had a nice quite sunday. It was so peaceful that Ryan wasn't used to it.

They have 4 kids, so Ryan and I became the "parents" of 5 kids for the week. :) No, we aren't crazy! They are really good and fun kids. Their agas range from 11 to 2. The biggest conflicts have been btw their 2 yr old, Henry, and our's, Ashby. To learn about how funny and smart these kids can be check out Zina's blog. We are staying at their house, just around the corner from ours and they have given us the keys to a shiny white mini-van. Yes, Mom, I'm driving a mini-van for the week! :)

Anyway, now you know a little bit about who these other kids are. :)
