I think we ended up with about 14 inches of snow here. No school again today and a smaller system is moving in Sunday night into Monday morning. Lord help my children if we don't have school Monday either (I'm wondering anyway with this snow, it's so deep and ice packed and I can't even get out of my alley to get to work and it's supposed to stay very cold for a while, so no thaw). DH dug out my parents last night (they don't have an alley to contend with), so my mom is coming to pick up me and the girls in a little while. We're going to my sister's where DD1 can play in the snow with her cousins and I can enjoy some hot coffee in the warm house.
My parents are older, my mom is 64 and my dad is almost 66, but they don't let it slow them down. They also have a huge house, so plenty of room for the girls. It's rare that they baby sit for us though. They have 20 grandkids and end up baby sitting a ton, more than they'd like, so we usually ask DH's parents. They are a little younger and the girls are their only grandkids, so they love it. I would be more comfortable with my ILs only because the girls are very used to being and sleeping there. But ILs can't keep them the whole 8 days we'll be in Jamaica and I'd like to girls to be at least a little more familiar with my parents house before we leave for such a big trip. The only thing I dislike is that my dad smokes in the house. We've gone round and round about it and I've come to terms with it for now. He keeps it in another part of the house (I mentioned the huge-ass house, right?), but that's as much cooperation as we get out of him when it comes to his smoking.
Baths... the girls bathe together and Greta loves it. The rare times I bathe her alone, she still likes it but loses interest pretty quickly. She has started trying to go under water lately, DD1 does it all the time and Greta thinks it's hilarious. DD1 almost exclusively showered with me or DH until she was maybe 2.5. It was easier than running a bath and it killed two birds with one stone. We started bathing them together shortly after Greta was born. Greta had never showered before, but we were in a hurry one night last week so DH took her in the shower with him. She freaked!! She absolutely hated it the entire time!
