BABY BABY BABY

As the time gets nearer, this grandma is trying her hardest to explain to the youngest grandson that he will soon need to share his grandma with yet another. I told little man that I will need to share my kisses with the new baby when he gets here and do you know what he told me? Babies dont like kisses. lol. I also told him I will need to share all my grandma songs and my love and hugs and kisses and he said"oh no your gonna run out!" He crakes me up. Thats one of the things about grandkids or really even little kids in general. They will come up with the darnest things. Oh the things they say. Now the other day we were sitting on the couch and he was right on the edge, his knees bent up and he was holding his knees with both arms and he goes Im goning to fall grandma Im going to fall. Then all of a sudden he did he fell off. I laughed so hard while he of course was crying. Poor baby. So I said come here let grandma kiss it for you. to which he said no crying all the harder. After a few mins of crying I finally said are you coming up here? To which replied NO! I asked why and he said(wait for it) Why did you "push me off the couch?" What? What? I didnt push you you fell you silly goof! But he insisted I pushed him. I called my daughter after awhile to tell her about it and she said that figures he just did the same thing with his brother yesterday. He fell off the couch after pretending he was falling then blamed his brother. He told his mom that his brother had pushed him. Thing is she seen what had happened and she said ummmm no it didnt happen like that. But he insisted! Ah little childern learning to lie. Anyways We are tring to adjust to the new little bundle of joy to arrive soon and then I get to hear some more interesting facts that I never knew once he is old enough to talk.

HOW?

how is it one minute you can be so ding dang mad and the next laughing so hard tears are pouring down your face? Well, if you have grandkids it happens alot. you dont even have to be mad at them. You might be mad at someone who calls on the phone and when you hang up your grumbling about how can they be so stupid to think that you owe them that kind of money(just an example) and one of your grandkids come up and put their little hands on your face and say something so cute! next thing you know your laughing then crying. Believe me it happens. Yesterday I was mad at our granddaughter and made her sit on the couch next to me. Our grandson who had his tonsiles and adnoids out last week wanted a ice cream bar. Grandpa said go ahead. our little granddaughter sat there with this look on her face like she was ready to cry. I finally poked her on the shoulder and said you need to go ask grandpa for one they are his. She jumped up and went over to grandpa with this smile so big on her face and said grandpa please? grandpa said please what? she said can I have one too? Ice cream bar? grandpa said welllllll I guess so. Even though she had just been bad...but not the kind of bad that you dont deserve a ice cream bar just bad that she wasnt listening. Now her smile got wider(I didnt think that was possible) and brighter as she ran to the freezer to get a ice cream bar. Then she ate it so quickly like she was afraid that either we'd change our minds or take it away. WOW I laughed so damn hard next thing I knew I was crying. Those kids sure do know how to brighten your day no matter who your mad at!

DO YOU EVER?

WISH ON A STAR? PLAY IN THE WATER? PLAY IN THE MUD? LOOK FOR THE END OF THE RAINBOW? WELL WHEN YOU HAVE GRANDKIDS YOU START DOING THESE THINGS. WHY? WELL FOR ME IT WAS TO BE A COOL GRANDMA WHO WASNT AFRAID TO GET RIGHT IN THERE AND BE A KID TOO. MY GRANDKIDS THINK ITS GREAT THAT GRANDMA WILL GET RIGHT IN THERE AND PLAY. CARS,TRUCKS, MAKE MUD PIES,SPLASH IN THE KIDDIE POOL WITH THEM, WISH ON FALLING STARS ETC ETC. ITS GREAT BEING A GRANDMA AND YOU LEARN SO MUCH MORE ABOUT LIFE. IT MAKES YOU WONDER WHAT DID I MISS WITH MY OWN KIDS THAT I CAN SEE SO MUCH MORE NOW WITH MY GRANDKIDS? ITS ALL THE SAME ITS JUST YOUR EYES ARE NOW SEEING IT ALL OVER AGAIN WITH YOUR GRANDKIDS. YOU MIGHT HAVE MISSED SOMETHING BEFORE BUT MOST LIKELY ITS YOU FORGOT ABOUT IT. ONCE YOU HAVE YOUR OWN CHILDREN IT'S LIKE LIFE SPEEDS UP. YOU NOW HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO DO PLUS ALL YOUR PRIORITIES HAVE CHANGED. BUT WHEN YOU HAVE GRANDKIDS YOUR LIFE HAS SLOWED DOWN SOME AND YOU SPEND A LITTLE MORE TIME DOING THINGS AND YOU CAN NOW REALLY ENJOY THEM FULLY. SOMETIMES I THINK THAT MAYBE IF I ONLY HAD 1 CHILD THAT I COULD HAVE DONE MORE WITH THAT CHILD LIKE I DO NOW WITH THE GRANDS THEN I REALISE ITS NOT THE 1 THAT WAS THE PROBLEM BECAUSE WHAT I DO NOW WITH GRANDS IS JUST THAT GRANDS PLURAL. MORE THAN 1. SO IF I CAN DO IT WITH THE GRANDS THEN I COULD HAVE DONE IT WITH MY 3. IT JUST SEEMS THAT LIFE WENT IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION AFTER CHILD NUMBER 2 AND 3 WERE BORN. YES IN SOME WAYS I REGRET THAT BECAUSE NOW I REALISE I COULD HAVE SEEN ALL THIS WITH THEM JUST THE SAME AS I DO NOW WITH THE GRANDS.....IF I HAD TAKEN THE TIME AND STOP TO SMELL THE ROSES.

Collections

One thing I learned is when you have a collection use them if you can to teach a child a lesson. I collect many different things but the one that comes to mind most that I have used over and over again is my cookie cutters. I collect all different shapes for all the holidays, the alphabet, and fun interesting ones as well. When my oldest son was 2 I put my first sets of collection to work. I had the alphabets and some holiday ones like christmas and halloween and maybe a few thanksgiving. Yes I will admit I cheated some. I went to the store and bought 2 packages of cookie dough all ready made and 2 cans of vanilla frosting. I then got some food colouring. Then we went to town(so to speak) cutting out cookies and baking them. We made sure we did the alphabet first making a couple of letters twice. then we worked on all the other shapes till we ran outta dough. after they cooled we took several little coffee cups put in some frosting and then added the food colouring to make our different colours. Then we frosted. Yes, we had more frosting on us than the cookies but it was fun. When we finished frosting them we arraigned them on the counter. We then added by J J and I got the camera and told him to get up on the chair so I could take a picture of him and his cookies. I wish I had that picture here now I would show you his work but Im sorry I dont. But it was the best fun we had together baking and frosting cookies. When the other two were old enough I did the same with them and Im currently doing it with my grandkids. See collecting can be fun!

What I learned at a early age

I became a grandma at the young age of 41. I always thought it would be our oldest son,but instead it was our daughter who is our middle child. after our grandson was born I wanted to do all kinds of things. Sing was one but oh my I cant sing. But I learned right away the baby didnt care how I sang just as long as I did. I sang all of the every day ones. "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star", "Rock aBye Baby", "Hush Little Baby", Coming Around the Mountain". After going through all the songs I knew I made up some. The grandkids favorite song that I made up is the grandma loves you song. When I sing that their heads are nodding along cause they know its true. It's a simple song and I sing it to the tune of are you sleeping.
So my advise to anyone who has grandkids or will have grandkids is sing. Who cares if you can't carry a tune? The babies love hearing your voice reguardless of how you think you sound. And if you really think your bad if you sing softly(like a whisper) then it makes it all the more cosier for them to fall asleep.
