After breakfast DJ got dressed and started bugging to go next door...finally at 10:30 I said sure, and off he went! Sam couldn't get dressed fast enough to go with him! I had told DJ that if they couldn't stay there and play, he could invite the boys over here. My two came home within 10 minutes of Sam leaving here, and brought with them 3 boys! D soon got called back home as he had school work to do...but K and C stayed and played very well with my two. Then the painting started!! DJ got this Toy Story paint book for Christmas that resurfaced when I cleaned out the pantry and ever since then he's been bugging and bugging to paint in it....so I let the two older paint, and the two younger colour. Miss Samantha was NOT happy with my decision one bit!!! And let me know it! So, she got sent to her room to cry it out. I went in there after 5 mins and she threw herself on the bed in defiance and cried even harder, so I left. Another 5 go by and I go back in there and she's whimpering...so I sit in the rocking chair to talk to her and she comes up to give me a hug. I hug her back and just hold her rocking and telling her that she can paint another day but today is a colouring day...she accepted that and came out to play nicely.
Til next time...God bless!
