I don't know how she does it....

But after two days with my nephew, I'm exhausted. I have no idea where my sister and her husband get the energy to deal with a 15-month-old whirling dervish of energy. The Rooster tosses Duplo blocks everywhere, talks, shouts, coos, giggles and squirms around so much my sister has to pin the boy down with one leg to change his diaper.

And I love the little guy. He's funny, sweet and demanding all at the same time. Excellent dancer also. He does this great little shuffle like Sandman Sims around the kitchen floor -- right before he runs screaming across the room to play with his toys.

There's also nothing like having a 15-month old wake you up with his excited chattering about breakfast.

Many thanks to the sister, her husband and the little guy for putting up with me. I'd type more....but seriously, I'm about to pass out. They should bottle whatever that kid's on. They'd make a fortune. Of course there would be the side effect of needing a nap around noon, but I think people can live with that.

I could totally use whatever babies are on to keep them hyper all the time. Like right now.

Glad you had a great weekend.

K.: I think it's called "breast milk." And if that is in short supply, there's always similac.

Subject change: Viv, I packaged and compessed SimViv along with her house and two dogs from my new Sims 2 neighborhood. Let me know if you want it. :) Just typing that I realized that you may not have the new Sims 2 expansion pack. Dag. Well let me know if you want it anyway. If you don't have the expansion pack, then the dogs won't show up, but everything else should. :)
