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.

If I had kids I would be in jail. Love them as long as they belong to someone else. That's why I hang with Jodes...she got two wonderful boys but damn...sure am glad to send them on home.

I think you are putting the wrong person in the corner.
Wait for her mom and put them both there.

Thanks for stopping by my blog...please come back again. I am too a grandmother and have been for 18 years almost!! Do you believe in spanking first off? I do and I think your little one needs some nice paddling on her back side!! My grandchildren know that is what happens when they come here. I do it in a gentle way so they know where they stand here. They behave here but we have a lot of fun too...someone needs to talk to this momma!! I know how you feel though..take care...Yes I love cats a whole bunch. i just lost my Lucy and still trying to get over it...Sandy

Iam so happy to meet you on my blog tonight.I have 13 grandchildren and one great grandchild.Their ages range from 1 year to 28 years old.It can be fun and trying at times.We are blessed to have all of them and I love to spend time with them.I retired 3 years ago from nursing and loved all of my 28 years in the nursery taking care of babies.

I'm cackling! That's some classic stuff, sister! It NEVER ends!

I'm just grateful that she gave you two days of angelic stuff before reverting to the devilish behavior. Ha!
