I'm entering new territory here but so many have encouraged me to "blog" I've always called it "telling my stories". I'm Grandmama to FIVE FABULOUS children but then we Grandparents all think our Grandchildren are the best. My mother used an old saying" Every mama thinks her bird is the blackest". So let me introduce you to the cast of characters in my life and hopefully you will find in this blog a touch of humor, wit, wisdom, insanity sprinkled with a little reasoning, and/or simply something that you may relate to as a parent or grandparent. Parenting is hard work and you end up being the bad guy lots of times. Grandparenting can be difficult at times but mostly its like eating dessert before you've had your supper...you get to do the fun stuff and leave the bad stuff to the parents. Grandparenting is God's reward for not having killed your kids!

I'm tired and going to bed. As EG put it the other night "So many people want more of me". EG has a soccer game and Ryan has a baseball game, both at 9. I guess we will divide and conquer...Papaw goes to Ryan's game...I go to EG's game...
I'm sure I'll have a story or two by tomorrow night.
