Just thought I'd let you know that after last week's day of babysitting that nearly sent me to the mental institution, this week turned out a little better. My grandson (6 mo) wasn't near as fussy and didn't scream for 8 hours!! (He was cutting a tooth.) That almost did me in! And my 2 year old little granddaughter was very good today and didn't even have to have one "time out" : )) This month we started out with me just sitting once a week; next month it's twice a week. I envy some of you Nannas out there that just seem to thrive in this sort of environment. Me, I can wrangle in a herd of horses and ride all day and am never as stressed and tired as these two little itsey bitseys make me!! I believe that is why God (usually) makes mothers YOUNG! They are cute as buttons. I hope I can get on some sort of routine where I can actually enjoy that!! When I was baby sitting just my little granddaughter it wasn't too bad, but two is definitely more than twice as hard! I need prayers!
I'm a retired RN, living in a century home on 1 sq. acre. My wish was to someday have a horse property so I wouldn't have to board my horses. However, I've found the most wonderful full care boarding barn at Winfield Farm and Forge in Grafton. Hoping never to move! I have 2 grown children and 2 grandchildren. I have 1 rescued English Pointer and 2 rescued cats. And chickens!! (Just 2 of them at the moment.)
At 75 I started a part time eBay business that helps fund the care of my horses.
My daughter says I live in my own little bubble. Maybe that's true but I like it in here. I have a few good friends, my family, my animals and all you nice people in the blogosphere!
