Lots of smiles with my visiting kids today, but Katie and Buck are always in the back of my mind. Kids went to a local Splash! Waterpark today and had a great time. Tonight, I cooked all of Jeff's favorite things for dinner - fried chicken, potato salad, corn, watermelon, pound cake with berries and whipped cream. And he did all the dishes! What a great kid I raised. He has such a beautiful family and I'm so proud of him.

I have been babysitting my grandson Josh (age 6) and we have been playing alot of games. Trouble, Sorry, Memory Game and lots of card games. Well, today that little guy beat me at just about everything. He just got done beating me at Crazy Eights and he jumps up, throws his arms up and says, WOW, grandma, this is my lucky day and I've never had one before.

Find herself?

Oh man, I thought that was a 70's thing - "finding yourself." I can't tell you how many of my contemporaries did that. I was already a single mom by that time (having left for more legitimate reasons like abuse and alcoholism) and tried to tell them that the grass is not always greener on the other side of the fence. I'm so sorry his momma left - I hope it works out, JoAnn. In the meantime, he will always remember that his grandma was part of his very first "lucky day." He sounds like a great kid. He's lucky to have a wonderful grandma.

Finding herself, she should find herself in court explaining herself and opening her wallet!
The only thing worse than that is hearing a father say "but she gets me better than you do!" to his wife explaining his 20 something girlfriend he is leaving her for!!
Selfishness is selfishness.

Oh no, JoAnn! This must break your heart. What can you say to a little guy who wants to know why his Mommy left? Thank God he has your warm and gentle love to help him through this. And I sure hope mom finds whatever she's looking for soon so this child doesn't have to cry much longer.
