Grandma Update

Standard

Snuggling with a baby first thing in the morning.

Easy.

Learning to change a boy diaper.

Nothing to it.

Slipping little feet into socks you brought all the way from Paris.

C’est tres facile!

Giving someone else a turn.

Not so bad.

Rocking a baby to sleep on the porch.

Piece of cake.

Saying goodbye until next time.

Boy, oh darling little baby boy, is that hard.

    • Yep. I’d always heard that from other grandmas and never thought much of it.I sure get it now. Leaving him is so sad!

  1. I now know what you mean. Katy gave birth to Audrey Saison Widrick on October 13. I got to be with Katy for the first half of her labor and met Audrey just a few hours later. Saying goodbye to all the Widricks was very difficult.

    • I just wasn’t quite braced for how sad it would be. I imagine one gets used to it?

      Cute name! Congratulations, Grandma!

  2. Sweet! And, oh, those goodbyes. :( When my grandson was born, I lived in Wisconsin and they lived in Oregon. Torture. I spent every red cent I had on airplane tickets. The Hellos were super sweet; the Goodbyes were super sad.

    Hang on to those sweet Hellos! They are precious and they are what you will remember most.

    Give those little cheekies a kiss from me. :D

    • Will do.Plan to kiss him this weekend. Going to Baltimore to see my mom and Kath and Matt are bringing the babe to meet her!
