We lost one child and now we're getting four!!!

The title of this post was not meant to mislead you. We thought we were going to get a quiet weekend sans kids, as my student is staying at the high school for the 30 Hour Famine. "The 30 Hour Famine is an international youth movement to fight hunger."

Without the presence of kids, Hubby and I were thinking we'd just relax and watch a movie together. However, it appears we've lots on child and have gained FOUR! :) Our nieces are going to sleep over tonight since I have to pick them up at their bus stop after school and the kids across the road will be coming too. I'm not sure how long they'll be here for, but it will be just until their mom gets home. The kids need an adult to be present at their stop in order for the bus driver to let them off. It's a great idea. I'm all for making sure the kids are safe.

In other news, I think we're actually going to be having babies in a few weeks. Feline babies. Remember when George escaped from the house? She was gone for over a week. Well, she's been sporting an ever growing belly. By our calculations, we should have kittens here in 3 or 4 weeks. I don't know if I'm ready for babies!

Get ready to be exhausted! Actually, if they're schoolagers you should have lots of fun.
And you're going to have little kitties around - Giselle would LOVE that! She loves animals, especially cats - ironic, I've never been a huge animal lover (although through Ian's side I've grown to like dogs and tolerate cats - my SIL has 2 - another story). I'm quite allergic to cats, unfortunately. But kittens are the cutest - Giselle made me buy her a little purse from H & M with kittens on them, she loves them so much!

Giselle sounds like an absolute sweetheart! She is such a cute little girl, Karen!

Our nieces are 9 and 11 and I think the neighbours' kids are in that age group too. Our nieces sleep over quite often and they are so much fun. They even help me clean the house, cook, garden and do farm stuff! LOL! Of course, I realize that's because they want me to play Karaoke Revolution on PS2 with them!! LOL!
