Middie - When you have grand kids, you can love them, hold them and "wind them up. then when the diapers need to be changed and they won't go to sleep, because they are wound up. You get to give them back to mom and go to sleep. Just kidding. I love my daughter and my grand kids, who are not 18 and 16. I wish I had seem more of them wher they were young.

How old is he? I swear our 15 y.o. grew 3 inches in one week. The other day we were walking side by side and looked over at him, did a double take, then looked at his feet to see if he was wearing platform shoes.

I want to be a grandma!! You will change your mind when he really is grown up, Middie. Believe me. I never though about it until mine grew up, kinda grew up anyway, hehe
I miss having a small one around to play with and buy for. It's a shocker when they do start though. Everything is just like their first word, first step, now, first girlfriend, first break up, etc... Lots of fun
