well i had my neices and nephew here for the weekend.they are all three very young,ages 14 weeks,28 mths.,and 5yrs. old. i had forgotten what a beautiful experience it is to be around children so small. they are intrigued and pleased by almost anything.my younget is 8yrs. old and even he felt joy in watching the amazement on their faces as the chocolate syrup fused with milk. we caught lightning bugs saturday night and by the looks on their faces i swear you would think that i myself created those magnificent little bugs.if you ever find yourself feeling down,go to your local park and just watch the children play,its such a breath of fresh air ! i couldnt imagine beeing around kids and still feeling blue. i was feeling a little down before this weekend,my kids are all at ages where independence is a must,but i felt needed this weekend and now i feel GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How sweet… little one's can be so much fun!! We are lucky enough to get our 2 yr old grandson a lot. He keeps us laughing. And we are fixing to go to the hospital to be there for our new grandson being born today. Can't wait to hold him!! What a blessing.

I am lucky enough to get to play with my two greatnephews (4yrs and 18 months) for few hours most Tuesday nights. Blowing on dandelions, making patterns with colored wooden blocks, making zig zags out of play doh. As their grandma says it is so much fun when you are still smarter than they are.
