It's time for me to head to Oma and Opa's with the troops for a week. Mainly, it's to spoil myself with parents that let me sleep in while they hustle the kids out of bed in the morning and all cuddle in bed. There will also be great meals that I don't have to cook but can consume mightily. We get to visit friends, cousins and go out to parks and the beach. Yay!
I am bringing this little joker, of course. On a recent phone call I was telling Oma and Opa about him shoving pipe cleaners into electrical sockets. I was blaming it entirely on Ben's genes but then my dad reminded me who this child was named after. Tymen Christian, after my grandfather and my dad who was no angel himself.
