I Am Too Old To Be a Grandma.

      I have heard people say that  they are too young to be grandparents. Well I would like to state the opposite. I believe I may be too old, both physically and mentally, to be a Grandma. There is a reason why you have your babies when your young. You do it so you will have energy to keep up with the little blessings. Now that I am old, I can last about 30 minutes and I am done in. We were blessed April 2 with a new granddaughter. Hope Renee' Fuller entered this world weighing 9lbs11oz. We were all clamoring to hold this precious baby, but at the same time, give her big brother the needed attention he deserved as the first born.

Since Hollie had to have a C-section, she needed to stay a few extra days in the hospital, so I stuck around to lend a hand with Gage. When we brought mother and daughter home, I told the kids I would have no problem taking the night shift.(Super Grandma to the Rescue) Little Hope and I got to know each other very well in those quite moments of the night. During the day, big brother Gage and I played games, did puzzles and wrestled. What was I thinking? By the time Tim came to get me this Nana was tired. I was so tired I didn't even want to talk on the way home.(for me that is something).

I know if I had to do it over again, I would not change a thing. I would still be playing the games and rocking the baby. I didn't say I was the smartest grandmother in the world. Even though I am getting older, and I don't have the energy I once had, I still don't want to miss anything. I have heard older ladies say," I have already done my time let the younger women do it." I pray I never have that attitude. As long as these old bones get me from point A to point B; I am going to keep on keeping on!

I am truly blessed to have these little blessings in my life. Gage and Hope will have to realize they are blessed with a Nana that is young in her heart but old in her body.
