The joys of Grandchildren

On the 12th of September, a new grandchild was added to our family. Nothing is more exciting than a new baby. I'm in awe of how perfect and precious our little Dawson James Andrews is. Here he is, brand new, with his big brother, Kaden, age 4 and 3/4 years old. Congratulations to the proud parents, Joel and Tayla Andrews.

I'm a happy grandma, and a sober one as I contemplate the future for my grandchildren and my great-granddaughter Jaedyn Alexis, now almost three months old. What can I do to make this world a better place for them? That's a question I must answer to the best of my ability each day.

Heartfelt congratulations!

Janet, What beautiful little boys. Your blog reminds me of a wonderful saying that goes something like this: "May you be one of those women who...When you jump out of bed in the morning and your feet hit the floor, Satan says, "Oh shit. SHE's awake!"
Love to you and all of my beautiful cousins! Jane

Thanks for your comments and compliments, Mary and Jane.

I really like the saying you quoted, Jane. It's a great motivator. I will strive to remember every morning when I get out of bed to say, "Look out, Satan. I'm awake and ready to do all I can today to make this world a better and safer place for children."
