My adorable grandson spent the night with us while my daughter and SIL celebrated their 2nd anniversary yesterday. Ironically, it was just as cold as it was two years ago and yes, it snowed in Atlanta most of the day. Hmm…yet there was no panic, school closings or mad rush to the grocery store. Sorry, I digress!
After having a 10 month old for 27 hours straight, I have one comment to make.
There’s a reason why you have children when you are young! Old people do not have the stamina as the youngsters do. (how does Nancy Grace do it with her twins at her age, I'll never know) The little guy is teething so I am aware that is a major contributor, however, I just want to believe that he missed me from 1:30 to 2:30 a.m. and wanted to spend quality time with his Grama. And 4:30 to 5:00 a.m. At 6:30 a.m. this morning, he wanted to have a serious talk about his upcoming birthday celebration.
Luckily, I turned over my responsibilities to his Grampa at 7:00 a.m. and dove back in bed at 7:30 for a few more hours of sleep.
But, look at that face! I will walk a million miles to hug that little guy. And yes, he will spend many more nights at our home, but it is so worth it when that little face smiles that toothless smile at me.
