I like the quiet
Aw, our company is gone. We had a fun time, but man, I'm ready to get back to it being just the two of us. Yep, kids are cute when they go home with your sister.

I don't really have toys for kids? But I have coloring books! So we spent a lot of time coloring. I have the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, Pokemon, and Cardcaptors. Yes, I have a Cardcaptors coloring book. Shut up, you know you're jealous. But my nephew broke my heart. He said, "What's Cardcaptors?" WHAT'S CARDCAPTORS??? He's almost eight. I've been in CCS fandom longer than that child has been alive.

And my niece was drawing a picture of a girl with curly hair and an outfit that looked like what she was wearing, so I said, "That's a good picture. Is it a self-portrait?" And she said, "No, it's me!" She's five.

Yesterday she had her hair in two pigtails, so D decided her new nickname is Chiyosuke.

And my nephew got really hooked on playing Worms 2 on Xbox. And we took them to the zoo and the science museum, too. So I think we kept them entertained enough.

Current Mood: exhausted exhausted
Current Music: standing still--jewel

Aww, sounds like you had a fun time though. I wish my brother or J's brother would get a girlfriend and have kids cuz I want to be an Auntie. (because kids *are* better when they go home with someone else...lol.)

Oh, and I am sooo jealous of the cardcaptors coloring book. I have a sailor moon one but that's it, lol.

We did have fun, but man, were we wiped. Kids demand constant attention. That's why being an aunt suits me perfectly--all of the fun, none of the work. When they'd get cranky, well, that was my sister and BIL's problem.

I laughed at your bittersweet comment about Cardcaptor Sakura. How true! It feels like an age coming to an end. :(

Yeah, I can't believe how long ago that was!
