I’ve been pretty busy lately. Lots of baby bumps, helping out at Dayspring when I’m needed and continuing to welcome HazelTree babies earth-side. But no matter how busy I get, I am continually carving out free time to spend with my family.
My little grand-daughter just turned 4, which is a wonderful and beautiful age to be building life long memories. I have memories of when I was 4. They are few, but I have them. This makes me mindful of how Speed & I spend our time with her. Sleep-overs are a very big deal these days. So is carving pumpkins with Gramps.
She knows I’m a midwife. She says that I help mommies have their babies. This particular sleep over I was expecting a birth call. I had a 1st time mama who had been “doing stuff” all day so I felt pretty confident that I’d be leaving sometime in the night for her birth. I told my G-Girl that I’d likely have to leave her with Gramps to go help a baby be born and that I might not be back in time to make her pancakes for breakfast the next morning. This little darling didn’t miss a beat or bat an eye. She quickly replied, “That’s ok Grammy. Gramps can take me to a restaurant for pancakies.” Which is precisely what he did; in true Gramps fashion I might add. No washed face, no hair combing, no teeth brushing. Just out of bed, slide on yesterday’s clothes and off they went. LOL!!!
I have the greatest family!! I couldn’t be all that I am or do all that I do without them.
