Yesterday, I began my week by keeping our two grandsons for a couple of hours. I try to do this regularly so our daughter-in-law can have a couple of hours of uninterrupted silence! I may be old, but I still remember what it's like to have several little ones around 24/7! Silence is rare, and it's treasured!
Granddaughter, Madison, doesn't have school on Mondays, so I invited her to come over to play with Cade during his visit. She arrived before I had a chance to go pick up the boys, so she rode down to their house with me. Madison lives right next-door, while the boys live just down the road from us.
As I drove down the road, gathered up the baby, the children, the diaper bag, and began loading up my "precious cargo" of three grandchildren into my car, I couldn't help but make this comment, "Life sure gets complicated when you throw a few children into the mix." Of course, this statement is very true, but I wouldn't want life any other way!
My how mine and Ed's lives have changed over the past six years--but all three of our little "changes" are beautiful, healthy, and unique! They make us happy, they make us proud, and they also make us tired...after all, we're not "spring chickens" any more.
Yesterday, the grandchildren came, they played, (except for baby Chase, who slept through most of the visit) and then they went home. Afterward, MiMi ate lunch and took a nap... However, Ed had to jump on the trampoline with Madison whenever he came home from work...(smile) Life is good.
