My grandchildren and their parents arrived this evening. My daughter and son-in-law will be here until Saturday, after that the grandchildren will be all mine for five weeks! Well, I guess I have to share them with the spouse, and he's good for doing those tasks that Nana doesn't really enjoy, like baiting fishing hooks and driving the RV. I don't mind going fishing, I just don't like to fish. I'm fine sitting under a tree or lounging on the boat with my book. In reality, there's not much fishing going on when the grandchildren are involved. The spouse spends a lot of time untangling their lines and baiting their hooks.
This week while their parents are here the girls are sleeping on a blow-up mattress in the tiny bedroom we use for an office. It is also the bedroom has my closet. I was helping the girls get their bed made and Hunter was poking around the room.
"Nana, you have beautiful shoes." she says as she explores my closet and holds up a pair of shiny gold flats. "You should wear these tomorrow. They are gorgeous!"
It's going to be great having a six year old around. It will do wonders for my self esteem. I'm the one with gorgeous shoes!
