Yes, it has happened.
Re-mom twilight zone.
I see cute things.
They are orbiting in my world. They say "Look at me!, Look at me!" "Buy me!, Buy me!" I see them every where !!
Here are a few :
1) Saw this and LIKED it ??? Thought it was sweet. I wanna BE this Granny? What ??
2) Saw this on pinterest. Loved it !! Wanted to buy it already but the etsy artist was sold out. Already ??
3) Know I HAVE to have THIS gadget ! Wanted this when my kids were little!!!! ALL of them loved a rocking chair. This one is for Re-moms on the go ! Able to make a rocker out of any chair !
4) Or how about this ?? All things grandmotherly !?!
Looks delightful, but not for me.
Anyway, I notice Re-mom stuff and Re-mom stuff notices me. It was inevitable. Kids are great all the time, so I will begin the assent into grandchild temptation..........
Pray for me...............
(I can't stop !)

When I think of my growing grand-baby, I of course get excited but that excitement is also met with trepidation !
-Will it like me ?
-Will I remember how to do all the necessary baby things ?
-Will I have any energy to DO ANY of the necessary baby things ?
-Will I have the energy to do anything at all ?
-Will my daughter even trust me with the baby anyway ?
After all, I'm old and tired and on the internet writing a blog...........
But as I pondered these trepidations and walked the dogs around our woodsy trail (multi-tasking at its finest!), I came across an Easter Egg !
It still had a prize in it........ 27 cents !!!
How could my kids have missed this one ? It was right on the leaves !
Looked down and saw another one !
It still had a prize in it........$1.00 !!! And it was only slightly moldy !
How did my kids miss this one too ?
Putting it in perspective, my children are all adults. It's not like they are 10,9,8 and 3, falling down, spilling their eggs and running to mom and dad about it !
We still have an Easter Egg Hunt every year though, to remember past glories and triumphs of Prize Eggs containing $10 or $5 or of pushing each other to the ground and stealing ALL their eggs while they lay on the ground actually wounded !
Who wants to forget that ?
We have such fun that we also have a Turkey egg hunt on Thanksgiving !
More chances for prize eggs and flesh wounds !
The grand-baby is gonna love it !
And the fact that she/he can come over to Re-moms house 2 1/2 months later and still find treasures makes me think it might not be so bad !
My worries are for naught.
I got this.
Kids LOVE Egg Hunts AND Band-aids !
I got this !
(The third egg is one Re-dad found a few days earlier !)
Thanks for reading my blog !!
See you soon !

Last Sunday I was surprised and excited to find out that I was expecting my first grandchild !
It is so exciting, in fact, that I can not sleep, get a bad cases of the 'what-if's", and can barely bring myself to tell people about it !
It is the verbage.
My Mothers mom was a fabulous grandmother but she had white hair the minute I remember her.
I have seen pictures of her when she was young and she was gorgeous with black hair and a lovely smile.
And while I don't have white hair or consider myself a knockout, I don't consider myself old !
Old is Galapagos tortoise old, pyramid old, dinosaur old, even universe old !
The word grandmother is almost a synonym to the word 'old' in my mind.
Not older...... but OLD !
How will I avoid this?
I will be a 'Re-Mom'.
Like recycling my motherhood.
It is my 'green' word for grandmother.
Just taking care of and enjoying kids........AGAIN.
No age involved. None.
Re-Mom........ I like it !
Dodged that bullet. I feel better already.
Lets go eat cereal, watch some cartoons and then build a sheet fort.
