Emergency Back-up Mommy

On Saturday, my sister and her husband visited us, having come into town the day before for a friend's wedding. The main goal of her visit was so she could spend more time with our Kung Fu Panda, to get more comfortable with the sort of care she'll be assisting with at Otakon.

My sister was a fast learner when it came to diapers, bottle feeding and even soothing our sensitive Kung Fu Panda. For much of the afternoon, she cuddled with him and handled any issues that arose. It was nice to have the break; it was also nice to see how comfortable he was with his aunt and uncle.

Kung Fu Panda seemed to be excited about spending time with them and stayed alert most of the day, from about 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., only drifting off for occasional naps while being cuddled.

The Gryphon made a variation on Beer Can Chicken, using cans of baked beans instead of beer.

Naps fall by the wayside when there are exciting people in town.
