A DAY WITH GRAMSI

Dominic came and spent the day with me. 10 hrs. He did pretty well for his first day away from the parents.

In spite of his initial anger at being fed a bottle he caved in and chomped/sucked his way through it.

He mostly liked being in Gramsi's sling she made from an old t shirt. Take a t-shirt and
cut it off under the armpits...voila! no sewing involved.


Everyone eventually had a hand in playing/helping.
Grandpoppers...

Serena...

(Daniel helped too but I didn't get a pic)
Ben...

In fact Dominic thought Ben quite funny...

He loved playing with his Octupus that speaks 3 different languages naming colors when you squeeze a leg...

Dominic wore everyone out including himself...

He was VERY happy to see mommy again after such a long day away from her.

10 hours, wow! Looks like he (and everyone else) had fun, though! Great sling idea, I'll hafta try it when I have another little one, I think t-shirt material will be a little too stretchy for B&N now, they're a little bigger than D and need more support, oddly ;) But very cool idea!! Especially the no-sewing part. Am I wrong, or do all little kids just love Ben?

awwww ...waaay cute post on D's day with Gramsy! love those 1st 2 shots ha-ha!

Yes, 10 whole hours. Probably a bit much for the little munchkin at the end of the day... but he did pretty darn good.

Ben is definitely a kid magnet!

Tough kid I'm not gonna lie. Cute pics and great tip on the t-shirt thing. Hauling presto around is like a bag of flour with sugar. Ben just has a stamp on his forehead that says "Kid Magnet"
