They had lots of fun, and lots of energy to go with that fun.
They are very creative in their fun, and I find myself intriqued by their orginality in using their imagination. Yes, I did keep after them, although I cannot think what the responsibility involves for my daughter who is soon ready to deliver twins. How does she do it???
So quickly we go from laughter, to tears. So quickly we go from peacefully playing and sharing, to an all out battle. So quickly from being fed to being hungry again. And, so quickly their baths are completed, and then are needed once again.
Thank goodness I am not any older than I am, and thank goodness for health and stamina that I still have, and which is much needed for my grandparenting role.
My youngest daughter showed me the birthday card that she purchased for her boyfriend's mother. I just must share it at this point, because I cannot help but thinking that some of you in blogland just might be able to relate to it. I felt like I had written it.
On the outside of the card it said, "Happy Birthday, Wonder Girl." Inside it said,
I wonder where I put my glasses?
I wonder where I parked my car?
I wonder why boys call me "ma'am?"
I wonder if I paid that bill?
I wonder when that appointment is?
I wonder why I everything hurts?
I wonder why it's so hot in here?
I wonder why it's so cold in here?
I wonder why I said that?
I wonder if I locked the door?
I wonder what the speed limit is?
I wonder what that policeman wants?
I wonder if I should buy that?
I wonder if I should have another piece of cake?
(Yes to those last two, after all it's your Birthday, remember?)
Happy Birthday, Wonder Girl!(I know his mother will like this card)
As for all of us, we are still waiting, and yes, I look forward to having these dear little ones come again real soon...because after all, I am a "wonder girl".
Wishing you all special days on this first weekend of October!
ps. the bouquet of daisies, pictured on the top right of the blog, is the last bouquet of the season, of "Becky" daisies that I had blogged about in June. I am surprised that they are still in bloom.
