This week we had a child care quandry. My wife was out singing in the Berkshires all week. We had originally made arrangements for the boys to spend Thursday and Friday at Nana’s, with me taking Wednesday off to cover. But then our new boss’s boss at work convened an all-hands team meeting, with people flying in from all over the country. The last time we had one of these I was sick (like, hospital sick) and pretty much missed it completely. So I didn’t want to miss another one. How could we pull this off?
Have I mentioned that my in-laws are some of the most amazing and generous people I know? (This, after coming from a great vacation back home with my equally amazing and generous parents. What’s this stuff we read about in-laws being evil?) They agreed to take the boys for all three days while my wife sang and I did 8a-6p and team dinners Wednesday and Thursday.
Since Nana is on Facebook, though, the world got an amusing view into the world of grandparents trying to keep grandkids entertained for three whole days. And, I know the next time Nana is over and our house looks like a tornado hit it, we might not worry about being judged!
Here are the Facebook posts, in chronological order.
