Is Nana Wearing out her Welcome?

 

It's definitely been all about the grandmas round here, whether mine or my children's or my own doting Nana self sharing photos and anecdotes. I did offer up a little What I Wore the other day (Nana goes Street Chic?), but otherwise, I'm afraid I'm going to stick to the theme a few more days, until I clear a bit more time. Marking continues apace, but I'm squeezing it between afternoons watching a newly 6-year old play with her birthday dollhouse (Playmobil is still awesome, after all these years) and making a 4-month old smile and chatter until she falls asleep in her dad's arms (by the way, I might have the world's best sons- and daughter-in-law).

Off to a family brunch now, to meet another very new little girl. Back in a few days, perhaps with a fresh perspective. But still very much a Nana....Thanks for humouring me and my virtual brag book. . .

  1. I'm not bored of Nana, just jealous. And as an adult, that's something for me to work on and try to live with.

    1. I'm surprised how much there is to work on still, for me to be an adult. . . .;-) But I hope I neither crow nor bore. Evoking jealousy would not be my goal!

  2. Not bored either! It's always nice to hear about your visits with the grandchildren!

    1. Yes, well of course you're not at all impatient for grandchildren, not yet having the empty nest to enjoy . . . ;-)

  3. Wait a sec - is this a veiled reference to the birth of a new grandchild (which I know is on the horizon) and ANOTHER GIRL! This is hilarious. And congratulations!

  4. As a never-to-be Nana, it is a bit of life that is missing. In my family, there were always Nanas (mine only died 14 years ago) and G-G's. To have reached " a certain age" and to not have young children in my life feels as though there is a gap. I always enjoy hearing about your "wee ones".

    1. Wow! You had a Nana that recently? She must have been something!
      Glad to share my little ones here. . . .

  5. My guess is that Nana never wears out her welcome, at least with the sweet little 6 year old.

    1. So far, she still seems quite happy to spend time with me. I'm lucky!

    1. Three fabulous sons-in-law, actually -- crazy blessedness! And a dear, dear daughter-in-law. Like all their rellies, as well, and appreciate what a great job their parents did!

  7. There must be a term for 'jealousy' that is not mean-spirited. Longing? The Buddhist term "fond envy"? Not bored, are you •kidding•?

    1. Good point, K. There must be such a word, and longing, I guess, gets pretty close. . . "fond envy" is quirky-perfect.

  8. Never too much Nana-sharing! If there's something better than grandchildren, I can't imagine what it would be.

  9. As you know, I will be joining the Nana clan in May and I'm rather looking forward to it. As to being a grown up myself though ... the world's still waiting!

    Lovely post.

    1. Yes, well, we can show our grandchildren what a myth is that whole notion of achieving grown-up status. We'll just keep growing, shall we?!

  10. Of course grandmothers boast about their grandchildren . Each and every child is wonderful , and one's own are the best of the bunch !

    1. It's true, absolutely, isn't it! Hurrah for our wonderful grandchildren and children!

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
