- Colin will drink 1.2 liters of fluid a day... if you force him to.
- Kate will drink 38 liters of fluid ... unless you force her not to.

- Colin is in charge of all games and the rules (which become very fluid as he makes them up) and will tell you in great detail what you should be doing in the game at any instant in time.
- Kate is distracted by a loose toy, a shoe, or a butterfly going past, but will happily obeys Colin.

- Kate loves to be rocked to sleep by singing "Mockingbird" or "Big Blue Frog", laying down in her crib, and goes to sleep with a single peep.
- Colin is 'never' tired, and 'never' wants to go to sleep. He will read or play and then fall asleep sideways on the bed with his feet on the pillow and his head touching the end of the bed.

- Kate will eat anything, and will ask for seconds and thirds and eat them also.

- Colin does eat breakfast and lunch... if it's exactly what he wants. But unless dinner is Kraft Macaroni and Cheese or chicken strips from Papa Johns, forget it.

And the final and most important fact...

Grandma Hope is WAY too old to ever do a week with a two year-old and a five year-old alone again. Josiah, sorry - you're going to have to get your in-laws to do anything like this.

So, am I to interpret this post to mean that you watched two grandchildren under the age of 2 for one week?

Oh my God.

Your kids are lucky, indeed.

My two kids are polar opposites too.

Way to go surviving the week!
