We've had my nephew, Payne, for the last few days and it's been so nice. There are a few extra things you deal with like more baths and dressing more kids and keeping up with more kids, but Mason and Payne play so well together and really love each other's company so much that Mason is so much more content while Payne is around. To make it even better, Payne has no problems being a way from Mommy and Daddy which is so nice AND as an added bonus, he EATS (which Mason sometimes does not). I know Ashlee and Casey have to deal with a lot when our little blondie is sent their way, so it's really a perk that Payne does so well with us. They do have their usual 4/5 year old spats, but in general they can work it out quite well among themseleves. Today, though, was quite hilarious. I took them to Monkey Joe's to get out some of their energy (4 year olds have more energy by themselves than 4 of me put together) and while we were there, Mason spotted one of his little girl friends from school. He came to me and said, "Where did Wiwwy go?" I thought he had met a new friend named "Willy." He quickly told me it was a girl and that she was in his class and off he went looking for her. When Payne caught wind of what was going on, he wouldn't play with Mason anymore. I thought he might be a bit jealous and decided to just leave it alone. Shortly, Lily left and Mason and Payne played a little bit until Payne caught up with a girl of his own. Mason followed them around for a bit, but we left not too long after that. I have videos that I have attempted to upload of our little ladies' men, but it was a complete and utter failure! I'll have to figure it out and re-post it later!
