I’m still adjusting to this gramma thing.. I don’t even want it to be “GranDma”, just gramma, soft to say… not so harsh like with the “D”, LOL I think it sounds too old.. I’m not that “grandma”!
I have babysat several times now and I babysat again today.. She is such a gorgeous baby and is so much like Demaree when she was a baby.. it’s almost like it’s her all over again.. She is smiling and trying to talk, then get’s sidetracked by something else, then doesn’t know if she wants to be happy or cry, LOL I love that I get to change her, walk around with her and talk with her, Mara and Allison love her too, they talk to her and can’t wait to play with her when she can sit up on her own.. I can’t wait for her to start to giggle.. I’ll probably cry…
About 3 years after Allison was born, who is now 9, I knew for a long long time that I didn’t want any more children, I didn’t want to be around them, smell them, have anything to do with them. The horrible thing is my youngest sister had a baby 2 years ago, and honestly, I could have cared less! And I tried!!!! LOL Really, I LOVE babies, they are so cute and smell soooooo good!!! But at that time, I knew it was OVER, no more babies!!! LOL
Now.. What I have found that I really like about being “gramma”, is that Mackinzie goes home.. the crying baby goes HOME, LOL WOW, how great is that? LOL When they do go home, and I love them all to death, but I do this little sigh of relief that I don’t have to do that anymore, LOL Me and Martin just look at each other and say, “Can you imagine having to do that again?”.. We both say NO!
