Before And After…

I was babysitting my grandchildren yesterday and I am exhausted. What ever happened to all that energy I use to have. I raised 4 kids for God’s sake and it was go go go all the time. I taught ’04 ring around the rosie and my “we all fall down” doesn’t fall down anymore, let alone get back up. I played V Tech games with him and we talked. See not that much at all but I feel as if I tried to do something strenuous. I always enjoy my time with both of them and I may be partial when I say they are brilliant and funny, but they are so I don’t care how it sounds. I treasure every moment, even the moment when I realize I can’t get up off the floor.

This is how I felt before I left.


This is how I felt after I got home.


I need an Ensure or Geritol or a face lift, at the very least some lipstick please… gulp!

    I think you’re normal. I feel that way after a day with my own kids! Scientists would be stalking your DNA for the clue to the fountain of youth if you DIDN’T feel that way!!

    So if I feel like that after 2 hours with my own kids, what’s gonna be left for grandkids?

    You need caffiene! That’s the only way I get through the day with my kids.
