Five kids are sick here on the farm.
And their mommy.
I’m really thankful for the couch, television, and extra snuggles that this day will bring!
And thankful that Jayme and Owen aren’t sick. Especially since Owen just had surgery.
Today in our series on multi-generational living (which wraps up shortly) we’re looking at telephones.
In our house, we don’t have a land line. Bryan and I have cell phones, and my Dad has his own.
Currently, Bryan and I don’t answer Dad’s phone, and he doesn’t answer ours.
If we hear the phone ringing, and are able to run and get Dad, or take his phone to him, we do.
Dad does help me find my phone when I
set it down and can’t find it, misplace it lose it. Thanks Dad! He’s hunted for quite a while with us before when it was dead and we couldn’t just call it (under a couch cushion).
If we had a landline, and the other person got a phone call when they weren’t around, taking detailed messages (and remembering to give the message) would be crucial. Much like the mail issue we talked about yesterday.
As you can see, most of getting along in a multi-generational house has to do with respecting each other, the belongings of others, and the time of others. R-E-S-P-E-C-T. It’s important!
