I’m a Mommy Again!
Well, you know how every now and then your life just changes completely without warning? Well, that happened to me this week. You all know the problems I’ve had with my kids. Well, I ended up with my two oldest grand daughters moving in with me today. I am happy to have them but very nervous about doing this after all these years. They have really had a crazy life between going back and forth between their mom and dad and then moving here and there. I have no idea how many different schools they have been in since they started. However, in spite of it all the oldest, who will be 14 this week is in all advanced classes and makes straight A’s. The youngest, who is 11 is an A and B student.
They were very happy to get here today and we mostly spent the day playing and talking and lounging around. We did go to the grocery store and get a few things to see what they like and don’t like. I told them that we would not eat junk food and they were fine with that. We got strawberries, plums, apples, grapes, carrot and celery sticks for snacks, lots of Juicy Juice and some vegetable lasagna for dinner tonight. Yum. I think we are going to do fine. I just have to teach them to be kids again because they think they are supposed to be adults at this point.
So, if you wonder where I’m at for a couple of days at the time, you’ll know I’m busy. Very busy! I’ll post pictures soon so that you can see them. They are beautiful girls even if I may say so myself! I at least know now that they are safe and sound and will have a peaceful steady household to live in.
