We had this 5 year old boy in our house this weekend. Plus his 7 year old sister. Our oldest had an overnight babysitting job so the kids spent the night with us. Little boys are different than little girls, and of course having 2 daughters, little girls is all I know.
They are a different creature. I enjoyed this little man and his big imagination. He took me outside yesterday to the large pine trees that are in our neighbors yard. He told me I should be on the lookout for Bowser. Bowser is his giant with spikes on his back. Little did I know that there was a big Bowser and a little Bowser. When Big Bowser got loose I had to run and run fast. Can I just tell you that Bowser provided my incentive for exercise? As did a game of kickball.
Saturday evening there were 2 additional kids here for a total of 4 little ones. Another girl who is 5 and her 8 year old brother. They decided they'd like popcorn to go with their movie. I do it the old fashioned way. You know, kernels in a large pot on the stove top. You have heard of that, right? It was new to them. They had no idea you could do popcorn without a microwave. Oh.my.word.best.entertainment.ever. You would have thought I'd created a volcanic science experiment.
p.s. the babysitter received a text from the mother of the 5 year old girl and the 8 year old boy on sunday morning. said that the kids had a great time, thought the parents were funny and loved, loved the mom's popcorn. made me laugh.
