Three more sleeps!



This week with our grandson has been a true blessing. He is beyond adorable. Grandparents reading this know exactly what I mean. But he's only two, and two year olds sleep at odd angles and sometimes upside down. With that comes feet and kicking legs. These kicking legs and middle of the night waking has creating a very sleepy Gammie, who is filling in for parental units this week in the familial bed. We are now both counting down the return of vacationing parents - three more sleeps! Or not, as the case may be.

Off to the Portland Children's Museum - yawning but happy

Nancy, We went to OMSI last week - is that the "children's museum" you refer to? The Elliot is only 14 months but he went crazy in there - happy you're having a good time with him, and, yes, I know exactly what you mean!

Nancy said...

Amy - No, his other grandparents take him to OMSI all the time - this one is near the zoo. This is the first time for this place - I'll let you know how it turns out.

Wow... can I relate to this...my granddaughter has the need to be held when napping. I sit for her a few times a week and my back just about explodes with pain when I finally get a break. But I love every second of it!
The bunny is cute...another white rabbit synchro today. I'll have to check out it's significance.
Have fun Grammie! xxoo

I had to laugh at your title - I thought we were the only people who referred to days to go as "# of sleeps".. as in, 4 more sleeps and we will be on vacation or 2 more sleeps and the grandlittles will be here. Glad you are having fun, even if it is without a good night's sleep!

I have heard time waiting for an event to happen to be called "sleeps" for awhile now, but not in terms of the grandparents waiting for parents to return. It's precious, and I sure do hope you DO get "sleeps" in for the next few nights. Cute picture!

Joanne said...

Brenda Susan said...

Abe wrote something similar about his children in Pick A Peck of Pixels. Brings back all those sleepless nights. zzzz

Pauline said...

I find it adds to the enjoyment of something if you count down the number of sleeps to go until THE day. I'm sure you will appreciate a good rest while cherishing all the happy memories you have of the time you shared with the little bloke.

Happy Mother's/Grandmother's Day tomorrow, Nancy. Pretty darn nice thing you're doing there!

Pat said...

Although you will miss your grandson, it will feel good to sleep in your own bed again - with JUST your husband! LOL! Glad you are having a great time with the little one!

oh, i so know from whence you do not sleep, nancy!! ;) i have more grandchildren than i can count and am working on greatgrand ones now - and all their lives, for each and every one of them who lived nearby enough for me to take on weekends, i did - would pick them up on friday afternoons and keep until sunday mornings most times - fortunately, i did have a big cal king bed, but even it was not always enough space when siblings and/or cousins wanted to pile in all together - but - wonderful times and wonderful memories to carry us forward - friday nights were junk food and watching movies - saturdays were art shows, museums, parks and photos and sundays were "let's just hang out" - hope your weekend was fabulous!!!
