Day with Uncle Kellen
Up until recently, my (American) brothers and I all lived in the same town. The younger two, not being married or having full-time jobs, would spoil me by coming over to keep the kids and I company when Brad was out of town. I loved it!! I would bribe the poor, starving college kids with lunch or dinner to get them to come over more often and it worked!!!
work play with the kids. I've missed them! I've missed the help! Brad is gone for huge stretches of time and life gets lonely without adult company. Until recently, I had a nanny that could help entertain the kids but it is a different kind of help. I usually leave and let the kids play. With my brothers, I can stay and catch up and be silly and be in my pjs and be relaxed and just be! Kellen, who recently moved to Tulsa was in town this weekend and I was SO happy!!! I talked him into spending the day with us and it was a much needed visit.... especially since Brad is in Brazil for 9 days!!!! First thing is first, I got to take a shower in peace and quiet!!! Awww!!! He could have left after that and I would have been happy!!! It melted my heart to come out and find the three of them sitting on the couch and reading stories!!! I miss my brothers!
