Grandpa Jim has been coming over every day for the last 4 months to help us work on the house. He's been great and his craftsmanship is wonderful.
Today is his last "regularly scheduled" day with us and I think we're going to miss having him around every day for conversation, lunchtime, etc.
Whenever Jim comes later than usual or the few times he hasn't come at all, Monkey is usually over by the addition yelling "BAA-PAA! BAA-PAA! BAA-PAAAAAAA" and doesn't seem to listen when I tell him that Grandpa is running late or not coming that day.
So it will be interesting to see how we both do now that it'll be just the 2 of us all day long.
Monkey will be going to a little "daycare" over the next 3 weeks while I do a freelance job, so that will also be interesting. He's never been in a full-day situation like that before.
And who am I kidding, it'll probably be harder on me than on him :)
Anyway, that's our update for today. We're both excited to have the house done and sad to have it done because I'm sure we'll be missing Grandpa a lot...
