My Little Tornado 🌪

My Little Tornado 🌪

My Little TornadoI was delighted when Jacki sent a text to ask if I would like to have a Grandma Day with Nico on the coming Sunday. Well … you don’t have to call me twice for dinner!!! “Of course!”, I texted back. “What time shall I pick her up?”    And oh what a day we had! I keep forgetting just how busy a 2 year old is … wow!!! What fun though! I had the best day ever with Nico, my little tornado! 😃

Humble and Kind

… To Sweet Nico … 

Tim McGraw

 A Beautiful Song by Tim McGraw

“Humble And Kind”

You know there’s a light that glows by the front door
Don’t forget the key’s under the mat
Childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church ’cause your momma says to
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won’t be wasted time
Always stay humble and kind

Bushel and a Peck 👶🏻

GrandmaThis is my favorite song to sing to Nico and although I’ve got absolutely nothing on the fabulous Doris Day, Nico seems to enjoy it all the same! (I luv being a grandma!) 

      Bushel and a Peck

I love you a bushel and peck
A bushel and peck and a hug around the neck
A hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap and I’m talking in my sleep
About you, about you.

Grandma … Now That Has a Nice Ring to It! 👵🏻

BabyOn a warm summer evening in early July 2014, my precious daughter gave birth to her own precious daughter and on that warm summer evening, joy of all possible joys, I became a Grandma!

Unfortunately, as circumstances would have it (see Blowing A Gasket), other than the photos that were sent by text, I wasn’t able to actually meet Nico for about 3 weeks but, believe you me, the very moment Jacki put her in my arms, Nico Charlotte owned my heart! Such a beautiful baby girl! Healthy, thriving and so content! It was clear that Jacki had taken to being a Mommy with ease.
