Lots going on these days!

There has been soooo much going on lately!
As I said in my last post, my son and his
family were coming to visit! Yippee!
It actually ended up taking a bit of doing
getting them here, but arrive they did!

With news nobody cared for. They lost
their apt. and as of that night they
were homeless. Geez.

They decided to move up here for a fresh
start, but in the meantime had to head
back home to get a few things worked out
and sorted through. As they were not sure
where they were going to stay, we offered
to let the little guy stay here with us
for the 2 weeks. And he is here!

Its nice having a little one in the house.
Has been a long time since we have had
one here without a parent! Just like riding
a bike ya don't forget how ha!

So this is his second day without the
'mama' and he is doing great! Of course
we are getting used to each other
and new rules and such,but all in all
its all good!

I am surprised at how different I feel
in caring for a 4yr old as a grandmother
and not a mother. I still have little
'rules' I guess you would call them,
but there is a different softness in
myself. I just don't find myself reaching
the point of pulling my hair out or
getting exasperated easily.

I love being a grammie. I wish
my other grandkids were here,
or at least close by. Texas
is soooo far away from No.Calif.
But its wonderous at how far
your heart can stretch. And its
all wrapped up tight around
the other 4 sweeties in Texas.

Later I will talk about my son
moving in here.....yikes!!!!
