Tuesdays have become one of my favorite days of the week. It’s the day we have named “Nina & Maw-Maw Tuesday”. I’m not a big fan of mornings, but precious moments like this are absolutely worth it. I love being a Maw-Maw to two of the sweetest children around!
When you’re picking up your granddaughter for a sleepover and your grandson is bummed because he wants to go too, but has school tomorrow, you make an impromptu ice cream trip!
We picked a hot day to pick pumpkins, but we did it with all of our children & grandchildren, so worth it?
Happy birthday to the sweetest, funniest, wildest, big hearted, dinosaur loving 4 year old fella we know! Our grandson, Dominic!
Today was another dinosaur day for Dom! This time it involved dinosaur decorations, dinosaur nuggets, and a cookie cake covered in dinosaurs just like he told me he wanted! It was a fun evening with family and Dom even sang happy birthday to himself! God do I love this child!
We decided we wanted to take our grandson to see DINOSAURS for his 4th birthday. So we headed for Cedar Creek to Dinosaur Park for the day! It was a fun filled day of dinos, exploring, and big imaginations. Dom wore that big handsome smile of his pretty much all day!The lady that put Dom’s wrist band on at the dino park told him she was putting it on him to keep him safe from the dinosaurs. As we were leaving Dom saw me start to take mine off and told me “Wait Maw-Maw! You need to leave that on so the dinosaurs can’t eat you!” Thank goodness he kept me safe!
When Budah was Nina’s age he was obsessed with the Teletubbies. He would burst into tears the second the credits would start rolling. I can remember us recording several tapes stopping them just before the credits so he had an endless flow of his favorite show without breaking his little heart. His 2nd birthday was even Teletubbies themed and he loved the yellow one “lala” the most. This morning I found the teletubbies on YouTube for Nina and she seems to like it too. Unfortunately for me, it was just as ridiculous as I remembered it being almost two decades ago, ha ha.
After some breakfast, watching the teletubbies, playtime, and a little shopping we went to have lunch with her Paw-Paw at work today. We love Nina & Maw-Maw Tuesdays!
Really no words required beyond…
It was a fun filled Nina & Maw-Maw Tuesday!
To be a grandparent is to experience the joy of unconditional love. So thankful for our precious grandchildren and the amazing grandparents our children have in their Maw-Maw, Paw-Paw, Maw-Maw Susie, Grandpa Dave, & Gigi!
Some of my favorite evenings are the ones when our grandchildren spend the night and the funny conversations I get to have with our grandson!?
Dom: “I’m not a dude, I’m a MAN!”
Me: “You’re a man, huh?”
Dom: “Yeah, my daddy calls me man.”
