My parent’s are seriously the GREATEST parents & grandparents!!
A couple weeks ago my dad called me. The conversation went like this:
Dad: Hey, what are you guys doing this weekend?
ME: Ummm… (trying to run through my calendar in my head)…nothing… I don’t… think. (I say kinda slow).
DAD: Well, let me just ask you this. Can we steal Eli for the weekend?
YES!!!! YES!! I mean, I guess…but why?
DAD: Your mom and I are going down to Bryce Canyon from Thursday to Monday, and we wanted to take Eli with us.
ME: Do you guys hate yourselves? I mean, Sure, dad. That sounds like so much fun! But you do realize I have two kids right? Are you sure you don’t want to take the other one too? (Yes, I know I was being greedy).
DAD: Yeah. I am sure we don’t want to take her. Just Eli will be good.
HAHA! I at least had to try!
Let’s just say that was one of the best phone calls I have had in awhile! I LOVE Eli to death, but a 4 day break is nice once in awhile. I think I packed his bag as soon as I got off the phone, and he didn’t even leave for another 4 days!
Eli had so much fun!! But who wouldn’t? (besides my parents of course. :)) He was spoiled rotten, watched movies, rode on the snowmobile, played in the snow, did crafts, played games, played with his cousin, given 100% of their attention, and didn’t have his mom constantly yelling at him!
We had fun too. It was kind of nice only having one kid. I forgot how much easier that is. But believe me, by Sunday night I was ready for my Eli to come home. I missed that kid! He is my buddy and my sidekick. Our house was too quiet and I had no questions to answer.
Thanks mom and dad. Eli loved making the memories and Ryan loved having a little break.
