what I learned from the grandbabies today....

Today, with the grandbabies, I learned:

* throwing rocks into water is a huge entertainment for a 15 months old... so much so that he has huge belly-laughs.  Who knew the power of a KUR-PLUNK sound?

* a sleepy 3 yr old makes for a grumpy 3 yr old

* a grumpy 3 yr old makes Nanny the bad guy

* a 3 yr old doesnt hold a grudge very long

* I must look pretty darn goofy with french braids.  Isaac looked at me & laughed... & then looked at me again & laughed...  & looked at me again & laughed.

* a 3 yr old can give you a complex

* the hill in our front yard is now officially "a mountain"

* snot & slobber still grosses me out

* When you ask Luke where his eyes are at & he points to his nose, you dont care... it still cute & you still lavish praise in kisses.  Who cares if it messes him up in biology 10 yrs down the road.

* some playground equipment is REALLY REALLY high.  Too high for Nanny's to go up & have to pull down grandchildren without getting dizzy.

* the recliner next to Pappy's... in front of the tv that has a "Spiderman" video loop playing... has now become officially "Isaac's chair".  I dare you to argue that with a 3 yr old too...or even attempt to sit in it.

.....I cant wait to see what I get to learn today from 2 little boys...


  1. Love it! Love it all!
    I never get offended when my kids say that I look goofy or old or tired... I think it's funny too.
    Your Friend, m.

  2. ha ha! Some GREAT lessons!!! sounds like you are having a wonderful time!!

  3. that is SO great!!!

    Do you know what I've learned from your g-babes? That 15 month olds look ABSOLUTELY A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E in Superman onesies and leggers. =)

    Love you so friend ~~ Dawn

  4. hehe! Was hoping to see some pics, but I know you're busy just spending time with them! I can wait :)

  5. Sounds like you're having the time of your life! I'm so happy for you, Rebecca...your grandbabies sure are lucky to have you!

  6. Ha! I love it. I especially love that they tell it like it is (or in this case, laugh!)

  7. I'm sure Julie will get the boy straightened out as far as biology goes. He'll probably be teaching his class the how-to's.
