Minus one

I am minus one child.

Right now R4 is at the lake with the grandparents.

I love my in-laws, have I told you that?

I really do. They are wonderful people.

The grandparents take each grandchild by themselves for a week to spend some one on one time with each of them.

So this is R4's week and some time in July will be R8's turn.

I love that they get to hang out with them at the lake.

For one week they get to do pretty much whatever they want. And as a bonus for Hubs and I we get to spend some one on one time with R8.

I also like knowing as some point during the summer I get to just lavish all my attention on one child. And I know they love it too. Not having to share mom or dad with anyone, what more could a child ask for.

So since R4 is gone, I'm off to go play a marathon round of Uno with R8.

If you REALLY wanted to have some fun with that, you could do a shot everytime someone says Uno.

Just sayin'.
