So it was the weekend and it was nice - I decided to walk. I walked with Duncan, Char, and Allie Saturday to McDonald's then Sunday Duncan, his friend Nathan, Emma, and I walked to McDonald's. I have never seen Emma play so hard in all my life! She didn't even eat her lunch for an hour after we got there then she wolfed it down like she'd never eaten before - as she wiped a bead of sweat off her brow. LOL I thought that I would never get her out of there - she actually got into the stroller on her own and let me leave after 2 1/2 hours of pure, exhausting toddler play. I stopped at one point and stretched my legs and got the worst cramp I've ever had in my shin! Okay does that scream goofy old lady or what? I get nauseated when I think of how bad it cramped hahahahaha! So now I have a sore shin. What a nut!

Last week my daughter invited me to dinner so she and I could talk and she said something to me I have longed to hear ... she told me she appreciated me watching Emma so much. She said that she understands I don't want to come home from work and watch her, bathe her, put her to bed and that I do such a good job ... she sees that in how much Emma loves me and wants to be with me. She said she wanted to pay me to watch her ... I told her I didn't want her money but what I did want was what I just heard from her. I was quite grateful. I don't know what made her change but I'm thankful for what it was. Now we can continue on with our menagerie ...
