Spoiled!

I learned something about myself this week, I'm spoiled! As many of you know, I'm very close to my family and I get to see my two grandbaby girls, Riley & Morgan, almost every day! Riley, Katie, and Vinnie went down to San Diego for a few days this past week.I missed Riley so very much. Morgan, and her mommy and daddy, live with me, so I see her daily. And actually babysat last night while Bryce & Justine went out to dinner for their anniversary. And Riley, Katie, and Vinnie live less than ten minutes from me so I'm use to seeing Riley almost every day as well!I would never want to miss Riley's birthday, so I drove down to San Diego to spend the day with her. Katie & Vinnie ended up staying an extra day, so I haven't seen Riley since Wednesday. I know, it doesn't sound like a lot of time, but to me it feels like weeks since I've had her wrap her little arms around my neck and say, "I love you Gramma". As Morgan took a little nap last night, I just sat and watched her sleep. And then I realized how very spoiled I am when it comes to "Gramma's girls"! They are such a big part of my every day life, and when I don't see them, there is such an empty feeling inside of me. Thankfully, Riley comes home today, and we are having a family birthday party for her over at her house to celebrate her birthday! And me, I'll be smiling the whole time, because I AM spoiled and never, ever forget how much those little girls mean to me and how blessed I am to have them be a part of my life!

You are spoiled! But, you know what? You deserve to be spoiled! And don't feel bad about spoiling those granddaughters...that is what Grammas are for!

You spoil them, right? Turnabout is fair play I say!
This is our reward for getting our children raised without killin' 'em!
