300 Seconds @ O'Dark Thirty


Enthusiastic, exuberant, energetic, entertaining ... as a grandma, I am blessed with six little ones who are all of the above.  And I think it's fair to say that they've all had their middle of the night moments.

After one recent night, #5's Mama wrote, while Lexa was sleeping last night, we heard her shouting at three different times ...

 'That's my toy!'
 
'I drank all my milk!'
 
'Today is going to be a great day!'

 I smile.  Just a bit.  Because after all, at o'dark thirty they're there.  Hours away.  And I am here!

  4. All that doting, all that loving, all that just being enthralled by your grandies - that's such a gift you're giving your grandies and your children. :-)

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
