The kids are loving this hotel thing. Tonight we ate out again at Boca de Beppo. They swam ALL AFTERNOON! and were exhausted and begging to go home to bed. Ben fell asleep on the toilet. Ethan, mr ADHD and never sleeps, was begging me please please please take him back to the hotel so he could go to bed. WOW! Today was the first time ever in the pool for Sophie and Ben. they loved it AND Ben is already swimming! I mean like moving himself forward arms and legs going! He had a floater thing on but at first he kept on rolling over but then he figured out the balance and I bet that took a lot of core muscles. he swam and swam and swam. Uncle Bob and Aunt Jeanne came to play and the kids had fun playing with them and they brought yummy treats. Thanks uncle bob and aunt jeanne for a fun afternoon! Unfortunately I didnt get any photos because my hands were kind of full of children.
Tonight at dinner the waitress asked me if all these kids were mine. I smiled and said yes they are ALL mine. she asked their ages and when I told her 13,7,6,5,4, and a 15 at home, she bout fainted. she said wow you are brave. then she looked at sophie and said you must be the baby of the family. I smiled and said yep! for now! I think the poor thing nearly had heart failure. she smiled and said wow! and then carried on and went on her way. This is the first time we have spent a lot of time out with all the kids so its funny to see the reactions. The other people in our dinner party all knew our kids or about our kids so there were no surprises there. It is sort of fun to shock people. = )
I didnt get to talk to mom today. it was too busy. But I am sure she is working hard in rehab and doesnt want to talk anywyas.
