Had a great day today. Took the kids to story time and met up with DH's ex with her kids. I'm glad we get a long, it sure makes it easier. I also got my baby fix and got to hold her newborn the whole time.
I'm frustrated. We had talked to Russ' old teacher about flying in for the wedding and house sitting while we are on our honeymoon. She'd watch the kids, dogs and take Russ to school every day. I text her today to work out the little details and she has a new job, doesn't know if she will be able to get off. GRRR. I have a cousin a while back that offered to do the same. I sent her a message but am waiting to hear back.
I think I'm going to go with my cousin just so I can get it all finalized. We would pay to fly her in and have the house stocked with food. She says we don't need to pay her but I think we need to also make it worth her while and not take advantage of her. I'm thinking of paying her 150-200. What do you think is a reasonable amount?
Working on the wording for the kids birthday party... what do you think?
We're having a party, a special one too
A wild birthday party at the Lehigh Valley Zoo
We've booked the Peacock Pavilion so please don't be late
From two until four we'll all celebrate
With food, drinks, and laughter right under the dome
Before the party everyone is free to roam
We hope you can come to our birthday for two
Yes, you are invited to join in the fun
As Joshua turns four and Maya turns one
