This is why you DON'T leave grandchildren with grandmothers and go on a shopping trip to Portland:

first it was the bananas...
then it was blueberries...
You think she's a mess? You should see me!
I just (10:30 a.m.) got my first meal in two days. I ate Smartfood popcorn for supper last night, cookies for lunch yesterday afternoon and cold carrots for breakfast...I forgot how demanding this all is. How did we do it with two or three or six????? I'm exhausted and will go to bed as soon as they pick her up this afternoon. What a great time we had though. Can you imagine sleeping with your granddaughter tucked alongside; she is sleeping softly, breathing quietly, in the crook of your arm, snuggled up against you with her little hand patting your arm? HEAVEN must certainly be like this - at least my version.

Oh Queenie! How wonderful. I feel that way with my grandaughter. But my question is the same as yours, how did we do it when ours were little? My 2 yr old granddaughter wears me plumb out.

As much as I can wait for grandchildren...I can't wait for grandchildren!! Kiley is such a pretty baby. Seriously, she looks like a little Angel. Even with the bananas and blueberries on her LOL

What fun you had! There is nothing more beautiful than a smiling baby covered in food! I have tons of pics of my eating!

And to answer your question (as my three are still little) you just do what you have to do to get by! Grammies I believe may do more doating and spoiling than mommies;) and you love every minute of it too!!! You'll get to nap soon! Enjoy!!!

I was thinking of Queenie as my grandmother name and my kids think it is a bit much. How did you get that name?
