We needed more girls in a family where grandsons are upsetting the cart! 🙂
I’m not sure, but I have an inkling that my grandsons are not normal little boys.
Toys are not their thing.
They seem to have an uncanny sense of sniffing out any tool that is carefully hidden from their little hands so they can proceed to build something that will make the world stand in awe…and drop their Grandma’s jaw!
The casualties to furniture, much doted-on trees and other little boys’ heads is just part of the process. These boys have a purpose and will be building wonderful things for Grandma in a few short years (my list is being prepared)!
I wouldn’t mind a little more wielding of crochet hooks around here, instead of ducking from flying screw drivers!
My six year old grandson, Edward, helps his daddy snow plow all through the night, in the cold, shoveling along with the best of them…no.. plastic toys are not their thing!
Don’t get me wrong. They have their calmer, angelic side….
OK, back to pink!!!!
Sunday night (Feb. 1st) I got the call at 11:30 pm saying Jeanette was in labor and at the Birth Center.
She was more than 2 weeks overdue so we all breathed a sigh of relief that she was really in labor! Great! No intervention necessary!!
It was a restless night for Mom (me), in spite of my Precious Blood Prayer!
I had told her to call when she needed me. At 5:30 am, after 2 repeated tries at texting and seeing if everything was ok, I was contemplating grabbing my birthing kit remedies and just striking on over to the Birth Center.
Then I got the text!
“You’re a new Grammy!!”
I was quite taken aback. If it was me in labor, I would have had another 12 hours to go! And I had this funny “feeling” this was going to be a hard one for Jeanette (sure glad those intuitions aren’t always right!)
She’s beautiful and we are all pleased as punch that it is over!
