Grandma Makes Everything Better

I really beleive that my mom is an angel OR that she has angels constantly swirling about her. Probably both. I am shocked that there is no visible halo atop her head, although her countenance does shine through her smile and her words. But especially around her grandchildren. You see, my mom is the most playful, loving and understanding Grandma and she would be the first to admit she is very much in her element around children. She has the innocence of a child and genuine desire to get on their level and make them feel loved. For example, Reese is obsessed with my mom. My mom came by yesterday and went to get Reese out of her crib and Reese cuddled with my mom and would not let go very easily. She is very attached to my mom even though she is only 20 months and sees my mom a few times a month AND has to compete for attention with her other 2 siblings who are just as attached! It is totally normal for my mom to have sleep overs, play hide and go seek, the tickle game, play play dough, beading, reading books, take them to the dollar store, to feed the ducks or the Dairy Queen. i learn to be a better mom just by watching her be a Grandma. Not only is she the worlds best Grandma, but she is also a GEM of a mother. She is understanding, never overbearing, never intrusive, but validates you in your time of need. I wish i could express what i think of her but all i can say is that she really is the best.

Quotes from the Kiddos

Hayley handed me a note during church the other day and it said this " I love my mommy so much. Love is so good in my body. I hope you love that I said that to you. I hope that you have a great day mommy". LOVE HER!

Leah: while in the car she says " Mom i am rolling down my window because i need some FRENCH air". Yes, yes you do Leah.

"Summer is when the snow melts and it is warm and COMFY outside!"

While combing her hair she asked "Did jesus put our hair on us?"

Reese: How do you quote a scream? I was talking to a good friend who has girls the same ages as mine and whose youngest is very similiar to Reese. Her little girl has the same fire and determination as Reese and my friend said " if she is this mad about being a baby then how is she going to handle it when we ask her to pee in the potty??!! Good question.

You're welcome Mom.
