I'm at my sister's house taking care of her kids while she and her hubby are livin' it up in Mexico.  I've got to document a couple of funny things that Cooper has said so that I don't forget.  He's a funny kid!
*On our way to his blastball game yesterday, I told him that he was cute.  He said, "It's 'cause I've got my awesome Mudcats clothes on!"
*I gave them all notes from their mom, and his was signed something like, "I love you Baby, Mommy".  And he said, "Why'd she call me 'baby'?"  I said, "Because you ARE her baby."  "No I'm not."  "You'll ALWAYS be her baby!"  And he said, "SHE thinks that!" =)  
*Yesterday he said, "I've never taken care of myself before."  I said, "Oh, you don't have to take care of yourself, I'll take care of you."  He said, "I don't like it when people take care of me."  Last night when I was putting him down for the night, I said, "Thanks for letting me take care of you." (not thinking of our earlier conversation)  And he said, "Remember, I'm taking care of myself."

I'm very thankful that I am able to "take care" of my pseudo-kids.  It's interesting overseeing five, but we're making it (although I don't know HOW we would have last night without Emily and Allan!!!)!  I love my niece and nephews very much!!! =)

He is a funny kid and we can come back over tonight to help out. Bedtime with five kids seems like it might be near impossible alone. You are doing a great job!!!

Oh, Sara... you are giving A & C the greatest gift ever. I'm sure they have complete peace of mind knowing you are there. And how great E & A are just 10 minutes away!
And I've always pictured you as a mother of at least 5! This could eventually be your reality!

Cute Sara! I don't know why but your blog does not show up on my "blogs I like to follow" list but it shows up when I'm on blogger.....

So glad you are documenting the experiences and cute kid things about your week with your nieces and nephews. I'll be glad when you get here so we can play and help too. See you in a few hours. I love you and I love your servant's heart so much!

He's so funny! I love the things that little ones say.

You are so sweet to do this for your sister and Cory! I KNOW they are having a great time!
