A Day in the Life of an Atlanta Grandmother

Today

Xavier, Ashley and I successfully evaded the poop mines in the basement

To secure

 sustenance for our many bird, squirrel and chipmunk friends.

We then

shouted the alphabet while making it rain bird seed on the deck. Losing our second apple of the day, we returned to the house via the garage locking the dangerous poop mines in the basement for later disposal.

A job well done!

After a nutritious breakfast

of hamburger on a bun , the teeth got brushed and the hair got combed (not I might add without a major battle). This included brushing not only Manni and Elly but Sid and Diego out of the Jungle of Hair but a thorough picking and a head massage with coconut oil.

Hamburgers for breakfast?

Oh, heck, he's eating isn't he?
Oh, heck, he's eating isn't he?

With Miss Ashley down for a cat nap I jumped in the shower, Xavier's legs visible from the hall way.  Much to my astonishment, when I emerged, he and his crew, old Buzz, new Buss, baby buzz, and Woody were sleeping in the hall way.  It  is now 1145 Ashley is asleep again and Xavier has emerged from his  slumber asking for another hamburger.  Oh and he wants me to mention to everyone that he is not constipated anymore.

      How cute! You sound as if you're having too much fun. We have two things in common. I have relatives in St Pete, and Atlanta.

      Glad you enjoyed the hub ListLady. I am finding that grand kids make you feel younger not older.

      Absolutely lovely. And as a grandmother with a boy child due in Feb. I look forward to these days - squirrels and all. There is nothing better than introducing our babies to nature - there is just such a natural affinity.

      Thanks for such a feel good hub - with photos. Yay!

      Rated up and more!

      There are times I miss the time to write a serious hub. But at the end of the day, this is what is really important, the care of my children's children. God is good all the time!

      Through the eyes of a child who is able to see God in his innocence....the bird seed rain which brings the birds to eat as the real rain brings a rainbow....The hamburgers that Wimpy craves and Popeye laughs at....The coconut oil of health.....Through the eyes of a child we are able to see the world as it should be.....

      Enjoyed and also the pics!! Many blessings....today and always...see, it was a much needed move...look at the care you are able to give these little ones....safe in Nanas arms they are, and not at a sitter!!!

      It was a relief for both of us to say the least. It was an interesting day but then a day with a 2 year old is always an interesting day. Looking at life through the eyes of a little one gives one a new perspective on what is really important in life.
