GRANDMA ARRIVES

Sonya and the children were pleased to see me arrive in LA. It was a long flight but mostly at night so I watched movies and then tried to sleep without much luck. However it was a good flight and I sat next to a lovely young Canadian girl going home after a year in Oz.
The first day I was on baby sitting duty for a few hours while Sonya went to work. No time for jet lag.
Her husband is away filming in New Orleans and the nanny has classes a few mornings and evenings a week, that is why I am here.
The little boys are adorable but full of energy.
Here I managed to get them to sit down for a few minutes to paint with glitter glue.

  1. You wisely chose to use the glitter glue outside.

  3. Well darn. Stay for the Christmas season because I'm coming over there then. Call Bill and have him come over and I'll bring my crazy fun cousin and we'll all have a party. There! I've got your whole two months planned out for you. You'll have a great time with the boys. So cute!!

  5. I am glad you are there to help. I'm sure that Sonya is appreciative --and I'm sure that she REALLY needs you! I'm sure you will enjoy your time with those precious little boys.

    Hugs,
    Betsy
    P.S. How many hours were you on the airplane?

  7. I agree, Sonya wouldn't have asked you to come halfway 'round the world if it weren't necessary. And besides, you and the boys will bond in a way you'd never have been able to do otherwise.
    Congratulations on being awake enough to stay with them after that flight.

  11. Hopefully it won't take you too long to recover from the jet lag as those boys are certainly going to sap your energy.

  13. Glitter glue is a wonderful choice -- especially since you are all outside. I hope you were soon able to get over your jet lag.

  14. You are going to have a wonderful time with those precious children, I just know it. I just drove 8 hrs to be with my little grandson. He's worth every minute as I'm sure yours are.

  15. Diane, soon you'll have wings, not just for flying across the world, but also because you're an angel! Did you end up with glitter glue on your face (I'm sure the children had it there and everywhere else!) Jo

  16. How lovely for you to spend time together, making memories! And that looks like the perfect table to squirt with shaving cream and draw with fingers.

  21. Grandmas don't have time for jet lag or ever being tired. :)
    I'm putting glitter glue on my shopping list for Thanksgiving activities. Looks like fun.
