Grandparenting Can Make Everyone Call Jesus!

Our daughter and son-in-law went to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras so Honey’s baby was staying with Paw Paw and Honey. I know he had a wonderful time because I try to make each visit something special. However,  we are empty nesters who have carved out a quiet controlled life.  We do not tell each other to use our inside voice. Picking up and cleaning before bed are just things we do. Occasionally we do re watch some television shows, but never so many times the same day. We rarely if ever repeat ourselves or at least I thought I didn’t. I do repeat the phrase Jesus Christ quite a bit though. This phrase made me know that our little man had listened to me over the days he was with us.

Saying all of that he was a joy to have. I know that he learned to call on Jesus. He informed me of this. I was telling him that he needed to clear his place at the table and get ready for school. I was just about to repeat myself again when he said, ” I know,  clean my place–Jesus  Christ, I know”.

    Ready for bed–didn’t say sleep, just ready for bed.

    Saying goodnight to mommy and daddy.

Am I tired?  You bet I am. I forgot to tell you they left his roller skates which I hid. There would be no trips to the emergency room on our watch. We loved the time we spent with our little man, but we need to rest up for the next one.  Enjoy grandchildren and remember they are there for a visit so make it fun.

Remember “thisisyourbestyear”.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.

  1. He is such a cutie pie, and has lots of personality. What a joy! But since I now have a grandchild, I truly understand where you’re coming from. LOL!

  2. Great perspective(s). Honey’s grandson is a cutie. I’m looking forward to when MeMe (me) can go visit them (grandchildren) and return to my favorite side on the sofa with that “..quiet controlled life” you speak of. They are precious and wouldn’t trade them for any others. Glad you all had a great time in the name of “Jesus Christ” and more.
