Just me and Ginny girl

If you've got more than one kid, do you ever feel like the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. got short changed on one on one mothering? Leslie is a little more high maintenance than Ginny. Ginny is so easy going, she just rolls with the punches (figure of speech, I don't actually punch my children). This week while Wayne and Leslie are gone it's just me and her. We christened our girl fest by thoroughly cleaning the house and cutting grass. Well, that's what you get with an ADD and OCD mother. I did help her rearrange her room (she has her mothers genes) which her dad hates us to do. He'll come home to a completely rearranged house, providing lots of nighttime bathroom trip excitement! Now that that is out of the way, the next 6 days will be a girl fest indeed. We are going to sleep in, then go to church and after to Mexican. The highlight of the week will include pedicures and beach time. Most of all, I'll enjoy just chatting with her. Sometimes her hilarious commentaries on life are overshadowed by Leslie's comments of "Ginny, that is so stupid" For this week, she gets Mom all to herself, and she can say whatever she wants. We will eat at all her favorite restaurants, and she gets to pick what to watch on TV. Every girl needs to be the center of attention, even if just for a week!
