Mental note to self-----

The other day I was playing with Graham and Clara and while explaining something to Clara, I stopped myself and muttered, "You probably can't comprehend that". She never missed a beat. "I can't comprehend that Gramma".


Just to "Clara"-fy------
Mission accomplished.
Once they are over 3 years old they become much more flexible and cooperative.
And BEFORE they are toddlers---well, they're just too cute for words.

Did this mental notes to yourself apply during your times as a mom or just as a gramma?

This world would be a better place if Clara took over. Kirk and I vote that your grandkids are simply adorable.
I have a little snippet of news for you (it seemed weird to post this info on my blog, but I feel it's slightly less weird to say it in a comment on your blog). Went to the OB Thursday, and it turns out I'm 4 cm dilated and 90% effaced. Monday marks 37 weeks. How 'bout that? She's guessing he comes in the next two weeks--cue excitement and nesting overdrive! AND Taunja is getting induced today! Good times.
Loves to you!

Memzy--I didn't get that smart until I became a gramma. It's all about perspective.

Gelly, I'm so excited!!!!! Instructions: lay on that couch and be a slug until your mom recovers enough from her recent surgery to get in the car and drive to Colorodo. The minute she's up to speed---do jumping jacks. Works every time. Can't wait for the news.

That first picture looks like me as a child...I even wore glasses at age 2! Such a fun post. And that picture of Graham is wonderful!!!

Does Graham have a neck? It is unclear from that photo...and from when I saw him in real life, actually. I mean, he has to have one, right?

So cute!

Carol said...

Landee, Sorry, no neck. Just a deep crease where fuzz collects.
