Oh Gramma

Oh, how we love when you come to visit.  You make our lives so much easier when you're here, and you teach Rory amazing new things with each visit... like how to raise his hands in the air and say "weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" when he is on a swing. Or last night in his highchair. And when he was sitting on the floor drinking his bottle this morning.  I think we're in for a lot of 

"weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeees!" :)

When it comes to a transition back to work, I highly suggest having a live-in-gram to make things a MILLION times easier. Even if only for a week.  It's been amazing.

Gram, you have made a week of high fevers, sore teeth, unrelenting rain, sleepless nights, and this mamma's first few days back to work SO MUCH EASIER.

Everyone needs a Gramma.  One, or two even better!  And one or two that live close is even better that that. In fact, if Rory ever decides to move away from home I am going to  give it to him straight about the harsh reality of not having family close when you have a baby.   There is nothing like the love and undivided time and attention grandparents give their grandchildren.    Maybe I should start a service in Toronto called "rent a gram".   Brilliant no?

Thanks for everything mom.  We love you.

  1. Mary Ann - I've said in the past and this picture really shows it.....Rory's hair is nearly the same colour as yours!

    Thanks again for all of your wonderful help this week.
