I need to clear something up here sports fans.
I love you all so very much for putting up with my insane stories of my grands. Very patient lot you are.
I need to tell you, I never had a grandmother, oh I did but heck one had already passed away years before I was thought of and the other had 50 something other grandkids by the time I can along. The only times I felt close to her was when I got to dance for her as her at my grandparents 50th anniversary shindig. Guess who I danced with???????? Yep, Sweet Man..it was destiny.
And the other time was when I was 10 and she spent the one and only night she ever was overnite at our house. I was supposed to sleep next to her but she snored so bad, I went and slept on the floor of my brother's room. She didn't speak english and I didn't say too many words in spanish so there ya go. I didn't know her. She died when I was 13. I had no role models for grandmothering. I have just made it up as I have gone along the road.
I never want you to think I am bragging about my relationship with my grands. I never want you to think I am doing anything except sharing my joy at their "inherited insanity" with you.
And as some of you have blessed me with comments about wishing I was your grandmother......me too. I wish I would have had a strange old bat who loves to laugh and holler and enjoy life. But there is a dark side to this as well.
RyLeigh calls me the wickediest wicked witch in the world because I am also a task master....so don't think the coin only has one side...it's schizophrenic too just like me. The kids have learned that I am as high as I am low and I don't mean anything by it but there are also down sides to being my grands.....they have to put up with me in all my variations on the theme.
So thank you for your comments but just know, it ain't all roses and sunshine but also you are required to bow to the queen (that is what Ry called me yesterday) and be prepared to run like hell when I start the tirade. Of course having selective hearing is working out pretty well for the rat heads.
Gerea says: "don't waste time bowing to the wickediest witch, she is a nice one but do run like hell....................feets don't fail me now".
You see, insanity does run down hill.
