Babysitting the boys and a bit of papercrafting

My BFF asked if I would watch her 3 boys this weekend overnight. I have to say that I was dreading the overnight part, as I'm 38 weeks and not that comfortable any more.

It was so much fun, and really nice to catch up with the boys again. The overnight bit wasn't half as bad as I had imagined it could be.

I used to have the 3 boys for a full weekend, twice a year, when i was living in UK. Now I feel that I hardly see them other than christmas. So on Saturday night we spent a couple of hours watching craft TV of all things, and playing with a die cutting machine. Normally the boys don't do 'CRAFT' but watching the die cutter in process seemed more like engineering to them so caught their attention.

Isn't it funny how we all see the same thing in completely different ways.

haha, typical men - you're definitely braver than I am. I know you're probably getting a bit fed up now, but I'm actually a bit jealous, I didn't get to 38 weeks with any of my 3 kids :)
keep well quine and hope to see you soon

Very brave
a) for looking after three boys!
b)for doing so, so near your due date...I'd have been terrified I'd 'go' early!

Hi Caroline, I think I'd be concerned too about babysitting two lively youngsters overnight in your advanced state:) Glad it went so well and that you seemed to have given them the crafting bug - amazed that they let you watch crafting programmes on TV though!! I'm not going to be able to make Edinburgh - my daughter is celebrating her birthday with a barbecue and my granddaughter has just got engaged so, no doubt,it will be a double celebration. Hope you have fun. Elizabeth x
