Happy Homemaker 2024-04-15

Good morning

Busy work week helping out some cw's... more of the same for the upcoming week.

Throat and coughing were better since Friday but this morning woke up to it again :( hope it passes quickly.

Grandkids came by last Wednesday for supper and on Sunday they arrived at 8:30 with their dad for breakfast.  ddil joined us for lunch and they left after supper at 6:00.  We went to the park with them in the afternoon.  Had bought a pair of jeans with a monster on them for Xavier... there was only 1 pair and I had a feeling the size was not right on them.. they said 2 but... in fact they are way big.. they must be around 3.  doesn't matter they'll fit later on.  While they were napping I saw a bicycle hat on Marketplace (spiderman) and we went and got it .. he was happy when he woke up.  I also found in my stash a dinosaur patch I had bought when ds was little, ddil will put them on some pants of his. 

I reserved a swing seat for the kids to tie to our tree (we had a baby swing seat but it is too small for xavier now) and some protection gear Bell Sports Spiderman Protective Bike Gear, 6 pieces included - on Marketplace.  we will be getting them on Monday.

Let's join Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom .
