weekend review

I'm free!! :) After the last week of babysitting 5 boys, I have never been more grateful to have a Saturday free of plans. Just being able to relax and hangout with Eric was the best! I do have to say real quick... those boys were SO good! It's just shocking to go from having 0 kids and being able to do what I want? To 5 kids and the world revolving around them :) Anyway, we spent the day visiting my in laws, eating good food, and catching up on movies.

 yum!

Sunday morning? We slept in until 9:30.... Heaven, I tell ya!


P.S. I finally got a Twitter account! Follow me @Court_Brink Hope I can figure this out asap!

i cant imagine having 5 boys! my hubs and i have babysat my 3 nieces (ages 4, 3, and 2) and my nephew (1) and THAT was a handful.... but i think boys would definitely be more of a challenge ;)

LaynahRose said...

holy coww.
so glad you survived.
i love babysitting for long periods of time like that because you really get a glimpse of what kind of parent you will be someday. speaking of which, i just got this wild idea...im thinking you and eric should get to working on that so i can die over how cute your bambinos are.

Nicole said...

ahh! seriously. hubs and i babysat three kiddos last weekend. made us kinda glad we don't have our own yet. but yet kinda left us wanting them sometime in the not to distant future. funny how that works.

Haley K said...

oh girl you are superwoman! those 5 boys were lucky to have you be their babysitter :) Before having our son Brooks, my hubs and i watched 4 boys once while their parents were in hawaii for 10 days...it was crazy, fun, tiring, and just like you said, our worlds revolved around them for that time, just the way it should be :) But going home the first night after our friends (the parents) got back, and not having any responsibility pretty much rocked our worlds :) so glad you got such a wonderful weekend and a relaxing movie night with your hubs :) Having kids is the most rewarding and sweetest job...but for now, enjoy your time with just the two of you!! :) and yes, sleeping in is HEAVEN :)
