When Mimi is in charge...

This is Vivi. She's my 10-month-old granddaughter and she was in my care this morning.

I changed her diaper, left her in the family room to go approximately 10 feet to prepare a bottle for her. When I turned around...this is how she looked!!! I thought she was turning into a blueberrry (did you see Willy Wonka?), but in actuality she had buried her face into a very-soft balloon on which her older sister had drawn a tiger face with a non-permanent blue marker!!!

We were all laughing hysterically and my daughter grabbed her camera to capture this! Thankfully, almost all of the marker came of with a baby wipe!

Little update

I'm in Pittsburgh with the babies to help a bit. Four children makes for a busy family and it makes me realize how "out of shape" I am!!

I drove down last evening after dinner with Rick. It's a two hour drive, but it's not a difficult drive by any means. I arrived about 8:45 and got to spend some time with Kelly, Evie and Vivi...the twins were already in bed and asleep.

My knee was getting better, but it's giving me a lot of trouble. I'm not sure whether it is muscular or more involved, but I am in pain with it. Last night it hurt all through the night and it is difficult to walk.

I tried some ointment/balm that some woman swears by. I massaged the ointment into my feet (as she recommended) and then took some tylenol this morning. Then I put Icy/Hot on the knee. Still hurts! :)

Anyway, I think I'll have our trainer at school give it a look-see, then I'll do as he suggests...doc or whatever.

Well, it's back to the kiddos to see how they are doing!
