On the way home from my ride on Sunday, I got a call from my nephew's wife. "Help! Our nanny quit at the last minute." They can get the baby into her corporate day care in May, but needed help until then. Well, I can't do the whole time, but I could give them 3 days.
So right now, I'm down in Atlanta...a full time nanny. Keep in mind that it's probably been 20 years since I spent a whole day with a 10 month old baby! Wow! All of those memories are flooding back. I forgot how difficult it is to do the simplest things when you have a little one. It's been a fun "bonding with Gabriella" time, though.
This is from one of our quiet times.
Yesterday, we took a long walk with Dagny, the dog.
I don't know if this walk tired them out, but I was beat by the time we came home.
In the evening, my nephew cooked us a delicious dinner. I learned a few new recipes while I watched him. After dinner, he took me to a yummy frozen yogurt store. It was a new experience for me. When we got to the counter, I noticed that he had a half of a bowl and I had a heaping mound! Oh, well. I enjoyed every bite. (I put fresh blackberries on it...so it was healthy! lol)
Today, we started off a little fussy, but I plan on taking an outing to Trader Joe's (there isn't one in Chattanooga) and a local bike shop. I think I'll find the nearest Performance Bikes, too. They have some good deals sometimes. I hope Gabby has as much fun as me or it could be a long afternoon. lol
Oh, by the way, all three of the people in this house have bad colds. I'm hoping I can get out of here without bringing it home with me!!
