I was asked to babysit my sister's granddaughter while her mother, grandmother, and one of my brothers and another of my sisters went to a warehouse sale. I must admit that I was nervous. I raised two boys, and I was wondering what to do to entertain a little girl. We ended up going to a flea market. She had 3 dollars to spend. It was so cute - she spotted a glass paperweight shaped like a diamond. It was a light shade of pink, and she decided she wanted to buy the diamond for her mom. She also found a framed poster with 4 puppies on it, and instantly she fell in love with it. I bought that for her.
After the flea market, we went to Lowes where I bought some more flowers for the house. Snapdragons, this time. I showed Maddie how to make them talk! She got a kick out of that.
When we left Lowes, we stopped at Mickey D's for a bit so she could play in the playroom, and waited for a phone call from the shoppers to tell us they were finished. We met up with them then at the Old Country Buffet and had a nice lunch.
Here is a photo of Maddie with her doll's blanket. I think she liked it! She said she has "tons" of Barbies so I'll be making her a doll bedroom set for Christmas - like the one in my slideshow in the sidebar. My niece told me that she slept with the doll clothes that I made her earlier this year! I'm so happy that she liked them.
It's turning out to be a nice afternoon. I had plans to go out for dinner with my husband. I didn't realize I'd be going out for lunch too!
