Today, we embark into uncharted waters. For the next month, we will be...without Grandma!
Our dependable, ace-in-the-whole, FREE babysitter is fleeing the continent, leaving us to fend for ourselves just as Cheeky has grasped the awesome power of her new-found mobility. She's been covering for us a lot the last few months, with occasional sleepovers and enough piece-of-mind that we could unload the kid for our own vacation. We shudder to think of four weeks without having a contingency plan when we need to get out of the house. How dare she take a once-in-a-lifetime adventure when we need spoiling?? Then again, how cool is an African safari? Except for the hubcap-sized spiders and rampaging river-horse, of course (although I hear cape buffaloes are more dangerous...)
