OH THE JOYS OF BEING A GRANDMA

THERE ARE SEVERAL REASONS TO BE HAPPY WHEN YOUR A GRANDPARENT. THE JOYS THOSE LITTLE ONES CAN GIVE YOU.....AND THE HEADACHES! I AM BABYSITTING MY GRANDDAUGHTER THIS WEEK AND OH WHAT A TRIAL THIS HAS BEEN. I LOVE HER DEARLY BUT I'M AFRAID I WON'T BE BABYSITTING HER ANY MORE. THE FIRST 2 DAYS SHE WAS HERE SHE WAS LIKE A LITTLE ANGEL. THEN ON THE 3RD DAY SHE TURNED INTO A DEVIL. OH MY LORD! WHAT THE HELL.....? ANY WAYS BESIDES TEACHING HER COUSINS BAD WORDS TO THE EVER POPULAR SONG OF FARMER IN THE DELL. TO WETTING HER BED THEN SITTING ON THE COUCH WITH HER WET PANTIES AND PJ'S TO SQUEALLING LIKE A STUCK PIG WHEN SHE DOESNT GET THE TOY SHE WANTS TO PLAY WITH. AND THE KICKER TO THIS ALL? WELL SHE BROUGHT SOME TOYS WITH HER. NOW SHE HAS BEEN PLAYING WITH HER COUSIN J'S TOYS ALL WEEK..IN FACT SHE HAS BROKEN CHEWEN AND DESTROYED A LOT OF HIS NEW CHRISTMAS TOYS BUT WHEN HER COUSIN WANTED TO PLAY WITH ANY OF THE TOYS SHE BROUGHT OH NO NO NO SHE SCREAMED SHE CRIED SHE CARRIED ON LIKE SOME ONE WAS KILLING HER. I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TIMES I CAUGHT HER WITH ONE OF J'S TOYS IN HER MOUTH AND HAD TO TELL HER NOT TO CHEW ON THEM JUST TO CATCH HER DOING IT AGAIN 3 MINS LATER TO PUTTING HER IN THE CORNER FOR THE NEW WORDS MY GRANDSON NOW KNOWS. IT'S LIKE SHE HEARS YOU BUT SHE JUST ISN'T HOME. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? MY NERVES ARE FRAZZLED AND MY BLOOD PRESSURE IS HIGHER THAN IT NEEDS TO BE. I WILL BE GLAD WHEN HER MOM COMES TO GET HER TOMORROW.
