Weekend Update with The Gal Herself

My nephew was with me from Saturday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. By the time we parted, I was exhausted! Seriously, Moms, I don't know how you do it.

We went to the local Whole Foods Market for milk (which he drinks by the gallon) and to choose a child to help from their store tree. He selected Sebastian, a 12 year old boy who wants a "hand-held travel game." We found him a baseball game that fit the bill at CVS, loaded him up with some batteries (which are almost as expensive as the game!) and a fleece pullover at Old Navy which my nephew assures me will be a hit. I'm glad we did this because I want him to remember that there are 12 old boys, just like him, who aren't as fortunate.

Then we put up the tree. That's Sebastian's gift you see there. My nephew was a lot of help.

We read books and ate burgers and pizza and played with my cats (very gentle with Joey, very patient with Reynaldo) and laughed a lot. I am glad we had the time since, now that he's 12, I'm not sure he will always be so willing to hang out with his old aunt.

    It's so nice that you make an effort with your niece and nephew like you do. I never really got that with my aunts.

  4. Ah, but you are new and exciting to him so I am sure he was good (active) company for you. What a great weekend for both of you.
