ROLL TIDE TOLL!!!!! We didn't win but I am proud of our boys!! We have the same record as Florida but will have to pull for them in the National Championship game. Wow what a game but the CRIMSON TIDE has had a great season! Sugar bowl here we come! Congratulations to all the players, coaches and to the BAMA NATION! Congratulations to Florida.
So today we are getting our grandbaby for the day. We are going to go visiting the great grandparents and the aunties and cousins. Once again I am so grateful to my daughter and SIL for letting us get him as much as we do. I only say this because I actually know people whose children do not ever let them have their grandchildren. I understand some of their children's reasons, a lot of them don't because their parents don't make the children mind. They let them brake all of the rules and then send them home. This is really only hurting the children cause when they get home they misbehave and get in trouble.
As grandparents we have to abide by our children's rules for their children. I may not always agree with them but they are their children. I remember how I use to get mad with my mom for telling me I should do this or that. So when my grandchild is with me I have my own rules and I have my daughters. I would hate to think that because of me he gets in trouble when he goes home because I was lax in grandparenting him (is there such a word? lol). Of course I am no expert, I have only been a Grammy for a year, however this is the main reason I have heard for kids not letting their parents keep their kids. I think it's sad because I would hate it if my daughter wouldn't let me keep my Ray.
Speaking of my Ray he is already jumping from the couch, rolling on the ground and jumping up and laughing. Like a commando. Now I just think that he is way to young for this kind of activity. I only had one girl, no boys, but I don't even remember my nephews doing that until they were at least 2. Any of you mom's with boys, did any of yours do this at such an early age? If so, how in the world am I going to keep up with him? lol
I do look forwad to the day he can say Grammy. He already says Nana, Papa and Paw. So that covers all the grandparents but me. He calls me "Duck". Speaking of grandparents before Josh's grandmother died last month, Ray had 16 grandparents, great-grandparents and step-grandparents. All of which love to spoil him. He can even say a couple of their names like Gigi and Pops. So why can't he at least say Gram or Gam instead of "Duck"? I guess I should feel lucky though everybody else is "Dog".
I guess I need to go, got to make sure the house is child proof so that Ray can have the run of it. Hope everyone has a great Sunday.
Have a blessed day!
