I’m in Love!

We met little baby Natalie Kate last week in New York City. I fell in love with her immediately. Although she is not mine, her mother named me her other grammy. I feel honored! Hubs and I took the grandkids to the Central Park Zoo for lunch and lots of interaction with the beautiful wildlife and fauna. It was a learning experience for us all. The cab ride there and back to our son’s co-op was also a learning experience. Our granddaughter swiped our credit card and left a tip. We are two taxi cab morons! She also had to use our credit card to buy us the two adult and two children tickets to get into the zoo! We are such machine using idiots! Those three hours at the zoo cost us a fortune, especially in the gift shop, but we love those kids enough to spoil them rotten. Our son prepared a fine home cooked spread and our daughter-in-law made a delicious apple cobbler from apples they picked at an orchard. Everyone there loved our holiday dinner last Sunday. The grandkids kissed and squeezed us goodbye. I loved hearing the words, “I love you, Grammy!” Now I’m off again to get ready for our Saturday night dinner date with some of our oldest friends. I love Saturday night dinners out, too.

Grandkids are the real treasure. In our culture they are called the interest of our investment.

Well, Natalie Kate is adorable. It would be hard to let go of that sweet baby girl!! It so nice to have young ones around who can do the things we cannot, actually care not, do.

I’ll discuss it with my husband. A baby would put a crimp in our lifestyle, however. Care to babysit?

@DianneN No way a child would cramp your life style. I would not want another one no matter what. My youngest is 21 and my oldest is 50.
