Children are for young women. I had my great neice, aged 5 and great nephew, aged 19 months from Thanksgiving to last night. Boy am I tired. My 15 yr. old DD took the 5 yr old and I took the baby and we layed down with them to put them to sleep at 8:30PM Saturday night. We woke up 8:30AM Sunday morning. Where do they find the energy? These are the 2 children that I hope to gain custody of once I have a "real" (in the eyes of the law) house. I forgot just how much attention small children need. Lordy, am I too old for this? I'll have them both for a Christmas concert on Sunday and dinner at a very, very nice restaurant. (It's a 16 year tradition that started when my oldest was 18 months old. My parents pay for the meal). Wish me luck.
