Son John Williams bought a house on our side of town, and yesterday was moving day. Would I look after the five local grandkids while all the parents help with the move-in?
They’re good kids and entertained themselves. But I unveiled the Old Maid cards I made for Will and Lincoln to give them a little distraction. They include matching sets of all their aunts and uncles and cousins and grandparents.
Plus the Old Maid, of course.
“I found a pair!” Oh, Lincoln, yes you did, you found a pair!
Eventually it was time for lunch—make-your-own pizzas.
One of my instructions was to “Make sure you’ll be able to recognize your own pizzas.”
No problem! They all “earned” their chocolate pudding for dessert. And soon it was time for someone else to relieve me of my post.
Mission accomplished. All five kids still alive at the end of my assignment.
