No, I’m not talking about the cartoon! 😉
I’m talking about the handsome little guy below in the photos that is my grandson.
🙂 He inherited the nickname from his Mommy. He weighs a whopping 14 pounds now and he’s always hungry! lol
Grandma thought of these discoveries while dyeing her hair Thursday morning. LOL!
What I’ve discovered about being Grandma within my first 2 days of caring for Chunky Monkey – DETAILS BELOW:
#1 When your grandchild is hungry, they mean RIGHT NOW–Not after going to the restroom or checking your phone for messages, or feeding the cat…they mean NOW Grandma! No dilly-dallying around!
#2 Grandma needs to master the art of using ONLY 2 wipes when changing a poopy loaded diaper…and that’s when it’s oozing out the sides, back, and front. She has a long way to go! But, starting to get the hang of it. 😉
#3 While warming up breast milk or preparing formula, (especially with the required nipple way over on the coffee table and with Chunky Monkey in one arm), for goodness sake, put the bottle down BEFORE lying baby on the couch to place the nipple on top of the bottle! Can you guess what happened to this NEW grandmother? lol Think about that one for a second. 😉 What a disaster!
#4 Grandma’s discovered just how wonderful this (not so new) invention of the baby boppy is. She’s wondering why it wasn’t discovered when her son was a baby? This invention is a life saver…shear genius! 🙂
#5 Grandma’s discovered that Mommy does a much better and faster job at putting Chunky Monkey’s arms and legs into clothing! lol
#6 Grandma HAS to get a video camera this weekend! Editing…did not happen this weekend, but WILL get one next weekend for sure! 😀
ENJOY THE PHOTOS 😉He’s growing so fast!
The bib says, “Grandma Never Says No!” lol
Labor Day At Our House
Two Of My Favorite Men Sacked Out In Our Living Room – Just Yesterday! 😉
I admit the first 2 days with Chunky Monkey were rough on me, (as my son puts it), “Did my son whip your butt?” YES, he did! But Friday was a very good day for both Grandma and baby. It’s getting easier and I’m finding ways to pacify and entertain him. And he LOVES to be entertained!
Starting tomorrow, I’ll be caring for my sweet grandbaby at my house. I can’t wait till he gets here in the morning. 🙂
It’s a whole new world for me and I’m enjoying every minute I have with him. I’ll be able to see all his firsts! 😀
