I never knew how much fun grandchildren are. I have a 3 year old who is my "best friend", her words. We cook, color, go to the flea market all while painted in multicolored nail polish with henna tattoes (is that spelled right?) and lots of hair bows. And all dressed in baby pink, "hot pink" is not "her" pink.

She loves to "fix mimi up". I know I look deranged. But to her we are "twins". So I don't care. And the best thing about grandchildren, the best after watching the daughter who put you through 7 years of teenager hell, is knowing that when the granddaughter is 13 and her mom is too dorky for word, I will still be "The Queen Mimi" to her "Princess Lainey".

and i have thought of the foster grandma thing....maybe someday?
A glimpse into my evening and weekend world:
My son is obsessed with the alphabet and spends 99% his at home time sitting in the living room floor with his ABC puzzles, phonic boards and favorite ABC book. Sometimes he plays/works on his own, but mostly he expects me to call out each letter (verbally or with sign) at random then he, according to which toy it is, picks it up, writes it or traces it with his finger, then lets me know when he's ready for the next one.
Sooooo, i spend most of my time reading, sewing, writing, working out, computing, etc. Anything that keeps me close by most of the time.
If i go to another room he still lets me know he's ready for the next letter and i yell one back at him. Sometimes, if i tell him i'm busy , he'll work alone for a few minutes.
More answer than you expected? but it explains why i live vicariously through others...lol

what are you doing today?
