    So VERY true.

    She’s ready for a much needed vacation. Now if her reinforcements get back in time to help with the babysitting…

    Will Evie REALLY come back to help? Or has she escaped while the getting is good?

    Doesn’t Evie HAVE to come back? They can’t really expect Val to take a week of vacation to babysit. There is no way I would leave Holly and the nephew (went blank on his name for a moment) in charge while Val’s at work. Plus Evie agreed to help out, and I don’t see her welching—she’s just not the type. Maybe Arnold will come help her babysit!

    The nephew’s name is Andy. He seems quite responsible for a teenager and the kids love him. He’s a little too private and solitary, but I like him.

    I’m guessing that Val will start out babysitting by herself, and just when things get out of control is when Evie will come home to save the day!

    I can see that storyline! You probably called it!

    moms feel guilty if they say they won’t miss the kids.

    That’s an idea!

    I used to travel for work more when the kids were younger. I would tell my wife, “I love our kids, I can’t wait to miss them.”

    She was not amused.

    My parents were so poor growing up they had an exaggerated value of stuff. You couldn’t drop or break anything. They would freak out.
