By Emma Claire Louise Rodgers as told to Grandma
Mommy and Daddy went on a trip on a big boat so I got to go stay at Grandma and Pops house. I wanted to write it down so Mommy and Daddy knows all about the great time I had.

Mommy and Daddy brought me over to Grandma and Pops house tonight. They tucked me in bed over here because they had an early flight out tomorrow morning.

My bed at Grandma and Pops is really comfortable and I slept really well last night. Grandma woke up about 6:30 this morning because she thought I’d be getting up soon. I fooled her. I slept in until 7:50. She heard me talking so she came and got me and we went downstairs. She had coffee and I had my bottle. It was really nice out on the porch. We watched the birds for awhile. I jumped in my Jumparoo and Grandma worked on jewelry. Pop got up and he played with me on a blanket on the floor. I had some cereal for breakfast and about 10:15 I was just worn out so I took a nap for about an hour.
We watched the Wolfpack beat Georgia Tech 45-28. It was a good game and I cheered real hard. I had some yogurt during the game and Pop gave me my bottles today. I was so tired after the game I took another nap. Grandma worked on jewelry but she hasn’t started my new bracelet yet. She said she had to finish a necklace first. I was really good today. I didn’t “break” at all.
I had peaches in my cereal this morning. That was good and Grandma said I’m a member of the Clean Plate Club. I went upstairs and took a nap but I was afraid I was going to miss something so I took a short one.
I wonder what we will do tomorrow….

Uncle Scott asked us to pick up Tyler at his bus stop so we went for a ride. We got there a little early and I was getting tired of sitting but Tyler’s bus finally came and he played with me on the way back to Grandma’s house. He’s good with kids my age since he has 3 younger brothers.
Pop fed me my dinner tonight. He said he had to practice because he is picking me up from Ms. Erica’s tomorrow. He gave me a Mum Mum for dessert! I visited with Lane and Aunt Anne when they came to pick up Tyler. After they left Pop gave me my bottle, Grandma read me a story, said my prayers and I was tucked in bed about 8:00. I snuggled in without a fuss. I heard Grandma tell Pop she was going to bed early tonight too. I guess the rain made her tired too.

I went back to Erica’s today. Grandma got me up, changed me, fed me and took me to play with my friends. We planned on getting there about 7:00 but got there about 7:20. It wasn’t my fault. I drank my bottle fast. Grandma just didn’t get up early enough to get us both ready. That’s OK, I didn’t mind. I got to sleep in until about 7:00 am.

Our morning routine was about the same as the rest of the week. TGIF! Mommy and Daddy come home tomorrow! Pop left work early today so he picked me up early. We went to the grocery on the way home. Pop wanted to buy me some more cookies but he couldn’t find the ones Mommy says I can have. I think he was tempted to sneak me some other ones but he was strong and didn’t give in to temptation…Darn!
When Grandma got home we did our usual evening routine of jammies, bottle, stories, prayers. I was ready for bed about 8:00.

This is my last day at Grandma and Pop’s so I had to get up early. I got up about 6:15. Grandma and I played on my blanket and we looked at jewelry books and magazines. I think she is looking for something to do tomorrow since I have to go home and she will be bored.
It was too cool to play on the porch and watch the birds like we did last Saturday so I laid on Pop’s couch and watched Saturday morning cartoons for a little while. I took a pretty long nap this morning but those noisy dogs woke me up barking at something.
We have a busy afternoon planned. First we are going to Tyler’s football game and then we have to come home and cheer on the Wolfpack. They are playing Virginia Tech today.
Pop cooked dinner tonight while Daddy, Grandma and I watched the game. After they ate dinner they loaded up all my stuff and we finally went back to my house. It was a fun week at Grandma and Pops but it feels so good to be home. I hope Mommy and Daddy had as much fun on their trip as I did. I don’t mind if they go again next year!
