new eyes...

I may be slow at posting much this week since I'm looking after my 5 nieces and
nephews while my brother and sister-in-law go on their first ever kid free mini holiday for 6 days.
This is those opportunities to look at life through new eyes.
Just this morning we found a ladybug on the way to school, hidden in the grass
close to the ground where small legs could see.
I learned that my 2 older nieces like to read the newspaper...

...gotta keep up on the hockey scores!
Then last night during bath hour, I learned all about the latest bath products for kids...
It's not just Mr Bubbles and No More Tears anymore.
They've got roll on body paints and my favorite for bed time... 
 Yup...Anti monster spray!
If only they had that when I was a kid, it would have saved me hours of looking under the bed!!
So this morning after some major organization, the older ones off to school for the day,
 it's just me and Isabella and the crayons...and lots off caffeinated tea.
I must say if it wasn't for Nick, the oldest boy, I would be lost!
He rocks at helping and knowing exactly where everything goes
and how everything works!
Soon it's off to nap land!

(love the spray! I've never seen that!)
