A picture of the 'wee one' from his birthday party a couple of months ago. I've searched for some good pictures of him to share, but I could only find ones where he had a cold or he had food smeared all over his face.

'Mom' and the boys stopped by for a couple of minutes yesterday to return something. I was standing outside when they pulled up. I could see D's forehead straining up to see over the car door. When he saw me he started yelling "gamma!! gamma!!" all excited like. Sniff. I savor these moments because I know they will not last.

He came running up the stairs... well okay, he walked up the stairs but then ran into my arms. We're buddies. He then pushed me aside and grabbed a chair and pushed and pulled it over to the sink. "I gonna wash hands" said with a big grin. This was followed by frowns as we tried to point out to him that he was only going to be here a minute, yada yada yada. Then I slapped my forehead, figuratively speaking. What in the hell were we doing, discouraging a dude from washing his hands!?! So he washed his hands while they were here. They were only beginning to get wrinkled by the time they had to leave.

Oh I loved that story... I really like peeking into other peoples lives and seeing what is going on...


and YES AMEN ALWAYS let them wash their hands... I mean, boys have a thing about NOT doing that once they get a little age on them anyway, hehee... Sooo TRAIN THE YOUNGINS...

I am eating it all up...anything about grandmothers and their grandkids. And, YES, I like seeing pictures of them too! But how in the heck can time pass so quickly! He is growing so fast, and you said that was a picture from two months ago!

I am about nine weeks out from meeting my granddaughter! I will be in the room when she is born. I just don't know if I can handle seeing my daughter in pain for any extended time. I'll probably freak!

I don't think you'll have to see her in pain. The medical profession seems to have gotten a lot more liberal in administering the epideral (spelling?) sooner than they use to....anyway, that's what it seemed like to me.
