Early bedtimes, birthday parties and kidney beans

My 21-year-old sister came to visit from Waterloo this weekend.

As a 21-year-old, and living on your own at University, many weekends are spent partying and drinking. At least I hope hers are, because I know mine were.

Now here’s a summary of how our weekend went:

- Friday night conversations started to trail off by the time CSI: Miami ended at 11 p.m. And instead of ‘drinking through it’ as my friend Rob would say, we called it a night.

- Saturday night was spent watching a movie after hitting several different grocery stores in search of kidney beans for the chilli Ryan wanted to cook up on Sunday. Yes, the first three stores were actually out of kidney beans!

- Sunday brunch was spent at Rob and Vone’s for Lilo’s first birthday party.

Not exactly the typical university weekend. I’d say it was closer to a weekend visiting the parents than visiting the big sister. But I guess that’s what happens when your big sister is a parent too. But she said she had fun, and I had a lot of fun with her. I don’t get to see her as often as I'd like so it was nice spending some time together and catching up.

And she did happen to mention that she needed to recharge and relax for next weekend since she’s going to be hitting ‘several’ Halloween parties. So I’m sure my parents will be proud to know that me, the big sister, was able to give my little sister a ‘G’ rated weekend.

My little brother, Rob, introduced me to your blog today! I'm thinkin' I'm gonna have to get me one these soon! I enjoyed your weekend recap. I'm loving watching all of you ease into the world of parenting, my world finally :) And, now, with your blog, I can follow along even better!

It's nice, yet weird, to know that people are reading. You should get's fun.

Once again, I reiterate that I *did* indeed have fun! After all the crazyness I've had in my life lately, just getting to chill with my sister, my brother-in-law, my adorable nephew and those two crazy cats, was just what the doctored ordered.

Love you! :)

I'm very proud to know that you did such a good job with your sister. You always were a great "little mother" to her. Now you're a great real mother to Austin.
