It’s been a crazy whirlwind few weeks while waiting on my grandson to be born and then actually being allowed to share in the experience of his birth on Mothers’ Day! What a special blessing that was!
I’m just now getting back into the groove of things here on Resourceful Blogger and around my house.
My new grandson is doing great. He’s a very healthy and happy little boy. The only thing he hates is diaper changes and boy, he’ll let you know it. Mom and dad are hanging in there, just tired from lack of sleep, but their doing great with all the changes that happen when a little wee one joins the family.
My youngest son just graduated from 6th grade. I attended his ceremony and took lots of pics. He is now an official middle schooler. He has signed up for football so I’m trying not to stress too much over that. I love football, don’t get me wrong, but with all the news about how head injuries that can cause lasting damage over their lifetime does concern me a bit, but I’m letting him play. I’m trying not to be one of those helicopter moms. I lean more towards the philosophy of free range kids. Of course, him being the baby of the family it has been a lot harder for me to not be over protective, but I’m working on that.
Besides taking care of my son and grandkids, I am working on planning out a summer vacation for my son and myself. With the budget being tight I think this year we will be attending local attractions. We also plan on doing a bit of swimming, fishing and camping. I look forward to that, but really need to find a good deal on a swimsuit that doesn’t let it all hang out if you know what I mean. Maybe I should I go with the Duggars preferred modest swimwear. LOL!
I also am excited about visiting a Sleep Number Bed this Memorial Day Holiday to pick out a new bed! Yippee!!! I haven’t had a new bed ever. Really! Just hand me downs from family so this is truly exciting for me. I will be posting my review of the bed in a future post.
And while I’m out and about trying out beds, I plan to take my mom to do a little shopping and then out to eat. We might even go see a movie to end the night. A little mother, daughter time to spend together. I’ll be sure to take lots of pics to share.
And while we’re out having some fun, my son will be enjoying himself at 4-H camp. I am so proud of him. He won a free camping trip from participating in all the 4-H activities all year.
Wishing everyone a Happy and Safe Memorial Day Holiday!!!!
