She's leaving, on a jet plane....

And will not be back for two and 1/2 weeks. Yup, my mom is gone until October 5th, which makes me the "resident mom"!

Its my grandma's 70th birthday tomorrow (Happy Birthday Gran-Gran! :D) and my mom went over to England to celebrate it with her, and the rest of her family. She left on Thursday, and it already seems strange without her! It hasn't been too crazy, because my dad is determined to be organized, but you never know what could happen in a household with 5 kids, and only a dad.. who is used to having a mom around to help! :P

Ayana and Moses were a little concerned at first, but we told them that "Mummy is on an airplane, to see Gran-Gran." Moses of course didn't really get it so we told him that "Mummy is coming right back" and he's happy, but Ayana got it straight away. The first thing she said was, "Uh oh Mama. On airplane.. don't fall off!" She's so smart! She's only been on an airplane once, and that was over a year ago. Besides, how would she have even known what it was, let alone its something you could (potentially :P) fall out of? She amazes me sometimes!

Since my dad works all day, and we're at school during the week, we have to have friends come and look after Ayana and Moses, and stay a little bit after school to help with dinner etc. We have a schedule, with several different people coming over, and yesterday Katherine and Anna came (see previous post about "Baby Nana and MoMo") and they had lots of fun! Here are some pictures of their exciting day together (they were taken with a cell phone, so the quality isn't the greatest.)
