Tired Granny

 Hi from Grandma Land!  I am limping along (and THRILLED that the mama and the papa are relaxing on the beach) as we try to stay happy and distracted at home.  I have spit up all over my clothes.  I'm finally caught up with the laundry.  The dog has decided that I am his favorite person in the house right now and follows me from room to room.  The fuzzy noise of three baby monitors sort of drives me crazy.  The cat sleeps with me and licks me.  Don't really like that.  On the sunny side:  dressing girls and combing their hair is fun!  Millie is a happy camper and not old enough for sibling rivalry.  The girls like my cooking.  Grandpa is a BIG help.  I've always liked playing with the garden hose and we've been having fun in the back yard.


Hotdogs at our house tonight, followed by baths.  We'll go back to their house for bed and tomorrow we'll shine up the house for Mommy and Daddy's return (well, we'll vacuum up some dog hair).  I miss you!

Sun hats off to you Pom Pom. I couldn't do it with such grace and humour as you ... although one look at those cute faces and I expect I would melt too :o)

You're a good grandma! I look forward to doing the same now that I have a new granddaughter close by!! (See my Backwoods Crazy Quilt post when you get a chance...and get rested up!)

Miss you, too!

Gosh even the animals feel all cosy and homely with you! a cat that licks you is a great honour - he has adopted you and wants to care for you. The girls must be having a wonderful time with you both. I like your new header. Bettyx

Wow, you are a busy Grandma! How lovely that Mum and Dad can be away for a rest and know thier children are safe and happy.

You have your hands full!!! I know you are having fun and I am so glad Grandpa is helping. It makes you wonder how we did it doesn't it? Maybe I walked around in just a tired haze. :)
Very pretty babies!

Oh my. You are a dear and making such great memories with your grands. I had a grandma like you and she was pretty much my most favorite person in the whole world. (I named Sara after her.) Baby looks like a doll in that first picture. I had to look closely to make sure she was real.

You just keep right on doing what you're doing grandma. We'll plan on hearing from you later!!

Blessings, Debbie

You are one good granny Pom! I was exhausted (but happily) by Camp Gigi, and Jess was doing all the work.
Hearts,

I remember this week from last year! Oh you have to love the cyclical nature of life and blogs. It's summer, so here it must be impossible to dry laundry because of the rain, and Pom Pom will be in seventh shattered heaven! Bon courage- they will sooo remember these days with you! And boy, will their parents remember their days with you! Also, it is lovely to be back and smiling over you again- even if it means I'm not making jelly, lunch, or carrot cake for a houseload of small boys later!
