Who's in charge of us grandparents?
2007! Wow... My life seems to have shifted into fifth gear and is literally speeding by. My baby will be 23 in a few days... My oldest son turns 30 this year. Am I old enough for these things to be happening to me? Has anyone considered that I may not be mature enough to have five grandchildren? What if I am too silly? What if I'm doing this all wrong. Shouldn't I be more sophisticated by now? Isn't there some sort of protocol I should have been taught? I don't know. I just think that I'm having way too much fun. I don't see anyone else smiling fondly at me; saying, "You're such a cute mawmaw" but that's what Cortney says. No one else wants to spend Sundays with me, but Elijah does. No one else squeals and runs to embrace me EVERY time they see me... but Logan does. I don't know why Sydney likes the song I sing to her... no one else gurgles and coos when I sing it over and over again. Juliana can't tell me why she likes that noise I make when I kiss her, but she laughs out loud when I do it. OK. Isn't this supposed to be where I start feeling older? I'm a grandmother. Shouldn't I start acting like an adult soon? Who monitors us grandparents and makes sure we're meeting the standard? Well, I don't know if I'm doing this right... but I'm sure having fun! I hope no one rats on me and sends the grandparent police to curtail my activities! Oh yeah... Happy New Year everyone out there in blog land!
