WHAT YOU'LL FIND ON THIS BLOG

Evidence that Fran has changed the entire nature of her blog without prior notice and should rename it Me Being Grandma

Here is Elijah, minus all the tubes etc.  And we've had our first cuddles.  And I told him my best jokes.

Grandma, if it's at all possible, could we just stick to normal Grandma/grandchild conversation
and cut out the wisecracks?

I swear, if you tell that one again about the wide-mouthed frog, I shall
pee in your eye next time you get to change my nappy

  1. Isn't it great that you GET to change his nappy? Parents HAVE to, but Grandma GETS to. Elijah, please don't damage Grandma's sight by peeing in her eye.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. You're right, because I'd never enjoyed changing a nappy so much in my life.

  2. I blame this forgetting the purpose of your blog on the newly embraced role and all the attendant stereotypes. Before long you will be sewing cloaks with red hoods and have a predilection for the intestinal tracts of wolves.

    1. Hm ... am already realising 'howl' and 'bowel' rhyme, so it may not be long before the intestinal tracts of wolves make an appearance.

  3. Oh, he looks SWEET! I love tiny babies. Also bigger ones. (It's when they grow up and marry impecunious actors or chaps with depression that life becomes more complicated. Sigh.)

    You look FAR too young to be a Grandma.

  9. Congrats! Consider wearing goggles while changing him, at least until a truce has been established.

    1. Do you think the goggles might just terrify him and make him pee in fright anyway?!
