Oh Cheryl,
how wonderful for you and the little one. I know just how you are feeling. I have 6 grandkids and I'll toss you this, when they get to be about 4-5 they will yak at and with you and life will just bloom for the both of you. It's the greatest when they can talk to and with you. Enjoy and build those memories.

Aww....sweet...thank you kades. Made me smile. Aren't grandchildren just the best things in life? Mine are 10, 7, 3, the two youngest are almost 2, and one's on the way.

How old are yours?

Princess Fiona, you are an amazing woman. I admired you so much and hearing that your life may settle down to a dull roar puts a huge smile on my face (let's face it, you will never have a "normal" life...you are too caring and awesome for that ).

All grandparents should have Skype on their computer. It is free. Every so often I get to call my grandson and we can see each other and talk. He has all sorts of tales to tell me. One time he ran and got his favorite book and held it up and asked me to read it to him. Thankfully, his mother was right there and handled that one for me.

He speaks three languages. English to his father, Italian to his mother and Albanian to his other grandparents. Sometimes when we talk he has to stop and remember I am the English speaking Grammy.
