Empty house before twins visit again.

by Bevvie on August 22, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

One-year old twin grandsons came to visit. Despite the fact that I had moved almost everything except for furniture to one room of the house, they still found items to move, push, chew, lick, climb on, tear, open, break, etc. etc. etc. Their father (my son) was not the type of child who was into so many things that were off limits. However, these little boys have gone places that their father never thought of. They were so much fun to have here for a visit, but I know that I have lost about 5 or 10 pounds running after them. I can't wait for them to visit for Christmas. But I need to empty out the entire house first.
