...to Grandmother's house we go! The baby and I went on a little adventure this weekend. I flew with her from Rhode Island to Sacramento, CA to go visit my grandma. It was baby girl's first time on a plane, and she was a champ! I'll save my general complaining about other passengers on the planes for Friday's letter's of Intent. It would just muck up an otherwise happy post!
My grandma, Norma, is my mama's mama. Ever since my mom passed away, she has taken on an even larger role in my life. We have always been been very close, but our bond grew deeper as we leaned on each other. Since she lives all the way ont he other side of the country, we don't get to see her very often. She has seen Natey only 2 times and this was her first time meeting little miss Arielle. It made my heart so happy to hand this little girl to her great grandma. To say they loved each other would be an under statement! Arielle belly laughed at the first words out of grandma's mouth.
My mom never got to meet her grand children, so it was very important for me to make sure my grandma did. She's 83, and despite her ongoing health problems, is as sharp as a tack! She's an amazingly optimistinc woman, and has played a large part in making me the woman I am today.
Arielle couldn't get enough of her great grandma, and neither can I.
I can only hope that my kids get many, many more years with her so they can know, love and appreciate her like I do.
I'm a crafter stuck in a scientist's body. I cook, sew, make pretty things, do crazy things like run half marathons, work full time, sleep when I can, and clean only when I have to. I can often be seen trying to shove 10 pounds of stuff into a 5 pound bag!
