On Being A Mimi

Being a "Mimi" is one of the best parts of my life. Unfortunately, we don't live in the same town as our grandchildren and sometimes have to wait two or three months between visits. Our ten-year-old grandson sent me this in an email a couple of days ago.

All at once, my heart grew homesick to get a hug from that sweet boy. He and his brother live in another state, and we won't see them until the first part of April. So, for fun, I'm posting a few pics--some of my favorite crazy shots. They make me laugh, and just remembering the special times we've had, I long for the next time I see them.

These are the important things in life, folks. And to my guys, Mimi will see you soon.

PS: We have a wee granddaughter also, and before we know it, she'll be luring us with her charms, too. I can't wait!

Looks like you have your hands full there. Great pictures. My son has the spiky-stretchy hat in bright pink. He loves the glow-in-the-dark feature and the looks he gets when he wears it.

Boys, boys, boys! Got 4 grandsons, myself! (And a 3-year-old granddaughter we don't see often enough.) Thanks for sharing your pix!

Carla, I have one granddaughter who lives close to us, so we get those precious hugs often. I imagine it must be tough having the grandkids live far away.

She doesn't have the stretchy hat, but she does have a Hannah Montana wig. I'll have to get a picture of her in it to post one of these days.
