While We Were Gone

While we were in Hawaii my parents watched the kids. My mom kept a brief journal of the week for us. Here are some of the funnier things that happened while were gone.

  • My parents came downstairs to find Josiah jumping on the furniture and asked, "Does Mom let you jump on the furniture?" Josiah responded, "Only when she is upstairs."

  • They visited a local children's museum one day. At one point my mom decided it was time to use the restroom. Josiah disagreed. He became very belligerent and insisted, rather loudly, that he did not have to go to the bathroom. Mom eventually convinced him to go to the bathroom. A few minutes later he told my dad, "Grandma was right! I did need to go potty!"

  • My parents learned a bit of sign language during the week. My dad was flabbergasted when Elijah used signs to tell him that the kitchen fan was making him cold. My mom was flabbergasted that my dad understood the signing!
All in all, my parents and the kids seemed to have had a good time together. I'm glad we had a chance to get away for awhile, but I'm equally glad my parents were able to spend some time with our kids.
