A Visit And A Slip Of The Lip

Friday evening the hubs and I took three of the granddaughters up to the hospital to see my daughter and the baby.  I'm not a very patient granny and go berserk if they misbehave, so I warned them, early on, to use their school manners and indoor voice.  Holy cow, that better not be the way they act in school or they should be in permanent time out!  The two younger ones took the rag off the bush!  In my very stern "granny isn't kidding you" voice, I told them in no uncertain terms, straighten up, get quiet, or we were outta there and there would be heck to pay. (my bark is louder than my bite with the grandkids, but they get my drift AND my granny isn't happy with you, face) 

The room my daughter was occupying, wasn't much bigger than a closet.  We were crammed in, like sardines in a tin.  I was relieved to finally head out the door, but concerned about the ride home, with rowdy girls.

I am NOT a spontaneous person.  I chart my course with much planning, thought and lists out the wazoo.  Two of the three girls, weren't part of my charted plan, they were added after the fact and my brain was on overload, especially after their behavior in the hospital.  On the hike to the parking lot, my granny brain went into overdrive to try to insure nobody was dropped off on the side of the road, during the brief ride home.  I decided to get them to sing.  Much to my surprise and pleasure, it worked!  I wasn't familiar with their choice of music, but they were being good and the sound of their young voices was fairly pleasing.

During a lull between songs, hubby asked the girls if they were singing "Teriyaki", then got that ashen look he gets when he knows he has blown it.  He managed to correct himself during my giggle fit and say "Karaoke".  Too late, I caught it.  He thought they were using the older ones' phone, with musical selection.  They weren't.  He told them they were singing Acapella.  Good job, honey.  At least you didn't say Acapulco!!!


The little one is still changing like crazy.  This photo was taken on Sunday, at three days old, trying out his swing.

Newborn...
That's the age I like them best. Before they can do anything!
Kids will be kids that's for sure. Especially if you are with a whole pack of them. I think three qualifies as a pack, doesn't it?

"Teryaki" dying over here!! At first I thought that must be some hip, new song or band and Hubby is so cool and with it.....until I read he meant Karaoke.
