Another game night . . .

Boy! who would've thought I would get beat playing Chutes & Ladders with WP. He's always happy when he wins! He also beat me playing Cootie. I have to work on upping my game skills.

"I got my first belt!"

WP is taking taekwondo and he passed his first test on Saturday. White belt and he's on his way. He was so excited that he sent his uniform home with his dad and his belt went home with him. I'm so happy for him. :)

"Can you come upstairs with me?"

KZ loves company, especially when he can get you up in his room. Once you're in the room there is no getting out. At least anytime soon, so we played with the dinosaurs, looked at a dinosaur poster, and played Cootie.  My newest gem was enjoying his feeding and trying to go back to sleep.

The Birthday Party . . . !

I enjoy being with my grandsons, but I don't know if I can do another birthday party alone. You are torn between  . . . I want to go on that or I want to play this, or "grandma, can I play that game?" Some rides KZ is too small for and some games both WP and KZ can't play. But all in all they were having such a GOOD time that we missed the pinata, and singing happy birthday. Oh, well hopefully the next party I'll stay more alert.

Another gem in my jewelry box . . .

My third grandson was born on Feb. 28th. A precious addition to our family. My third gem. I am so blessed to be able to be apart of his life. I thought about my own children; three boys and now I have three grandsons. Another 3, 6, 9.

While KZ's mom was in the hospital he spent time with me. We went through our usual rituals; reading bedtime stories, prayers, and my standard song (Twinkle Twinkle). Our ride to the baby-sitter's house was an interesting adventure. We looked at the sights and people along the we. KZ is very observant and descriptive. I do enjoy spending time with both WP and KZ.

Busy Weekend

It's always a pleasure spending time with my gems. WP and I spent time together on Friday. I'm really trying to get him into playing board games and reading more than watching TV, so we played UNO and Memory. Then we watched a little cartoon network, 30 minutes was all he needed. Then it was time for bed. Our usual ritual bath, read a story, say prayers, and then sing a song; Twinkle Twinkle is my favorite.  WP was picked up Sat. morning for his Taekwondo class.

 That was Friday . . . Saturday was a calm day . . . then the call came it's time! KZ was being dropped off, Sunday night and I would have him until the baby was born. It was late when KZ came so all he had time for was a bath, story, prayers, and song. Of course the baby came 4:03 am, Feb. 28th. I was happy that my new gem was here. I know his mom was even happier. We have a beautiful new addition to the family.
The morning was different for both KZ and me; getting ready for work and the babysitter. As we traveled to the sitter I told him about the new baby. I showed KZ the picture of his new baby brother. He asked about his mommy and daddy. I told him that he would see them later and he did. KZ visited his mom and new baby brother in the hospital.
