.....who is calling for me...."Where's JuJu?"
When I had my babies, I was always so busy and sleep deprived and anxious. I loved them but I didn't realize how fast the time was going to go by ....even though I was warned. I can remember wishing the time to go by faster so they would get a little older and sleep a little longer. And looking forward to the days that they would sleep in past 8:00 am so I could sleep in too. Oh, and I loved when they could feed themselves so we could all sit down at the table together. And what a bonus it was for them to finally be potty trained so I could spend my money on things besides diapers and wipes. And then one day, my wish came true. They were all grown up. Time had hurried by while I was busy cooking and folding children's clothes and making bottles.
The problem now is my children would look at me funny if I asked them to let me cradle them and smell their neck. Oh, what I would give to cradle them and smell their neck. So I think that's why old ladies like me are crazy about grandchildren. Anyone's grandchildren will do for now. But I am looking forward to my own. I can hold them and diaper them and bathe them and feed them and smell them.
And then hand them back and go to bed on time.
And sleep in past 8:00 am.
Congratulations Amy and Andy...and all those who love this little girl already. I can't wait to hold Abigail .........and would you be so kind as to let me smell her?
