Oma's a Nanny

Haven't had much time to blog...
Still on vacation with my daughter and her family
This is a working vacation
I've been very, very busy
playing, cooking, reading, changing diapers, etc, etc

Annie got a new job and has crazy hours while in training
It's a great job with Lockheed Martin
and Charlie bear just turned 1 

so it is as good  a time as there is 
to get back out in the workforce

So Oma came back East
 to help get the little ones adjusted to 
Mommy being gone
and to see Charlie Bear turn 1
And Mommy Bear turn 31

Just her and I went out for a dinner at
Red Robin
they sang, she hated it
But there was a free Sundae...

 and shopping...
I got her a Costco card for her birthday
The kids have been out of the country for 8 years
and so she wasn't aware of Costco's
full potential..
Wow, we had a blast!

After almost a week of this I am exhausted..
I don't know how the kids do it
I am in awe of how my baby takes such good care of her babies
I don't remember it being so exhausting when I did this
I will be here for another week to help out
and do more puzzels and make more cookies
and get to know my Grands better
they are so perfect in every way..
But will take home a whole new respect for my daughter and her hubby


  1. Such a sweet post! Your grandbabies are precious!! Martina

  2. Awwww, they're so cute! You have to take a little credit for your daughter being such a good mommy, I'm sure she learned from the best:)

  3. Cheers to that Kathy! It is a tough job, but so very rewarding. Enjoy. XO

  4. I know you are enjoying them and I understand the tired part. I have Leila today and Friday. So sweet of you to help your daughter through this transition.

  5. Hi Kathy!
    Thanks for writing today!! I hope you are having a fabulous time with your "grands". They look adorable, and beautiful!!
    I did get my necklace, just yesterday!! I think you saw that I bragged about it last monday on my blog, but it really is even prettier in person! I wore it all day yesterday, even though I stayed in my PJ's all day!!
    It was so awesome to win something, but something that beautiful is even more dear to me!
    Please tell Monica for me!!

  6. Lucky you, how fun a Costco membership, she will go crazy!

  7. You are a special Oma - your daughter must be so grateful. I'm going east in a month to visit my grands and I can't wait!

  8. Awwww! I am so happy that you are getting this time with them all, and I know you will miss them terribly when you leave. Give them extra squeezes!
