a kids fishing trip
You can imagine the feeling. But now she's awake and coming back to herself.
Her mama's been on maternity leave for a month now, so we're not spending all our days together. She's home with her family most of the time.
Apparently absence does make the heart grow fonder because in a normal week, she pays me about as much attention as an old chair.
But this weekend I got more spontaneous squeezes and was told at least half a dozen times, "I love you."
"Yeah? I love you too."
Time to get back to the cabin and go swimming.
That's all right.
There was nobody else on the lake to bother.
And my grown children will ask me to watch this grandchild or that one, or a few for a couple hours, and they creep up to the subject and apologize.
Are you kidding me??
If I can? The answer is YES.
There is nothing else I'd rather do than be with your kid, watching Cars for the ten hundredth time, eating grilled cheese and breaking up fights?
Love you all, MOM, aka GRANDMA. Also known to that guy in the black shirt as Val
