The new year is beginning and I was thinking what do I want to do differently this time around? I thought about how I started this blog, but then dropped it as life got so busy. I so enjoy writing, so I am back!
This past year, our family has grown by 2. We welcomed in 2 new grand daughters born 6 days a part. Maddie and Avery are just perfect, and Makenna is the best big sister ever. Having babies around again is just a gift. As you all know, they change so quickly, each already has their own personality.
I am babysitting now 2 days a week. This precious Grandma time is worth it. My golf buddies/hiking/mahjong buddies we are all in the same boat babysitting for our grand children. Not full time, but 1 day a week. We have arranged it so we are mainly out the same time, so that has been wonderful. How to balance it all.
Already 11 months have passed and the babies are almost 1 year old. I was at a Twinkle Baby library time with Maddie today and it is fun to watch how all these little ones are progressing. Another Grandparent ( there are 4 of us in this group) and I commented how much we enjoy these babies, even more so than our own at that age. We figured we were so busy working, trying to stay afloat that many of our own children's actions were missed by us. Another reason why being a grand parent is just grand.
