A Treat for Grandad! ~ Or A Country for Old Men

This was a really cool weekend cause I received the blessing of having to keep my grand-kids.  Its been quite a while since I’ve had them other than visiting their home.  The extra blessing was that it was my grandaughter’s 3rd  birthday too!  So grandpa (or Paw Paw as she affectionately calls me) go to spoil his baby and watch her enjoy herself eating pizza, a birthday brownie (she refused to blow it out, just stared at it) and ice cream while laughing at Tom and Jerry videos as if it were the funniest thing on earth.

Yes the old pro was at it again, changing diapers and trying to calm her little brother who was teething like nobodies business.  It was definitely an adventure!

I look forward to having them more and more as they grow up.  Its always been a dream of mine to be the elder for the younger generation.   I love the thought of being able to nurture them as well as show them the ropes – not from the perspective of a parent, (we all know how we do our parents sometime) but from that cool pimp granddaddy style.  You know where you know that old person knows what he is talking about, but he’s so smooth with it he doesn’t make you feel like he’s parenting you.

Grandchildren: truly God’s gift to the “chronologically gifted!”

    HAHA
    Way too cute
    Its still hard getting it through my head that you have grandkids, you just really look way too young for that. Your affection for your kids, your grandkids, and the kids around you is a big part of what got me to cherish you as a great friend and a positive person to associate with.
    Glad your weekend with your babies was a blast.
