Oh, the joy of being a grandparent. I can hardly remember my life without Jacob. I never realized how big my heart was--I don't think it's big enough for all the love I have for this little guy. My dh feels the same way. He is such a pleasure to be around, the most simple things are so much fun for him. So yeah I have to continue my journey for a healthier life for myself and for dear Jacob. But now it's time to take a nap with Jacob--he wears me out!!! emoticon

    Hi Blues,

    Oh I can so relate to each of your comments! My husband and I have 2 grandsons, ages 3-1/2 and nearly 2. They are the light of our lives. We watch them on most Fridays while Mom goes to work. They are 2 of the most active little guys in the world and I love to just forget everything else and play, tickle, laugh, chase and cuddle with them the whole time they are here. I too, find myself absolutely exhausted when they go home, but I wouldn't trade one moment!! They do keep you young and active and I can't think of a better exercise program. Bryce and Bobby are like two peas in a pod and love each other so much that they can't stand to not know where the other is at all times. Living in WA state we have lots of water around and we decided it was imperative that we teach them how to survive the natural environment should it become necessary. Hence, my husband and I have taken on the challenge of teaching them how to swim. So along with all the other exercise they offer us, we go spend an hour or so at the pool. We make an afternoon of it, driving approximately 20 miles to the pool, (sometimes wish we lived in CA or somewhere where we would have closer access) attempting to teach but mostly playing in the water for an hour, getting them out, showered and dressed (another huge effort with 2 soakin wet and by this time hungry, little tykes) then they are rewarded with lunch out followed by much needed naps!! They love to go "swimmin" and it really offers quality time doing something nobody else does with them. They do warm our hearts and offer so much unconditional love that it is one of God's dearest blessings!! emoticon

    What wonderful motivation he is for you.
    Blues, my grandma was in her 60's when she took on my 2 brothers & I. My eldest bro was all of 6 years old, then me & then my baby bro who was a few months old. Boy did we keep her young and very busy. She used to have a nana nap every day.
    I sure do miss her and there is no one on this planet that I could love more than I do her & the wonderful memories I have.
    jacob is very lucky, as are you.
