Yesterday evening I got a text from my sister-in-law (Auntie Missa) seeing if I wanted her to come over for an hour or so to give me some relief from my Monday. She arrived and played with Bubby while I folded the laundry I had on my bed (which she offered to do for me, but after my day a little break to fold clothes was very appealing).
As this was happening, my brother (Uncle Fman) called his wife on his way home from class, and finding out the party was at my house, stopped by, too. An hour of other people helping entertain my child amidst having conversation with adults was just what I needed to make it through the long Monday evening while The Hubs was at work.
Uncle Fman found a very fun game to play with Bubby and his push car - somewhat pulling/somewhat being pushed around the house - several laps. Bubby thought this was a ton of fun, AND I think all of the exercise wore him out because he conked out fairly easily for me tonight.
Thanks Auntie Missa and Uncle Fman - you are loved and appreciated!
