I'm ready...

... and excited!!
Of course.

Nell and I will bond.

And she will be safe....
with door-fences, and safety plug-things,
and cabinets that have safety latches...

Yes, all things safe.

But it could still happen...

A boo boo!!

Ah, but we will have cuddles, and laughing, and singing, and fun.... and naps, of course.

And I wanted it!
I asked if I could be the one ... to do this!

Starting Monday, August 25, I get to have her three days a week - for about 5 hours a day!
(This is while her mother teaches college level English to high school seniors.)

So Nell and I will get close.

I got a book from my dear friend/sister-type, Peggy Johnson...
That is the expression on my face!
(The lady in the middle's face)

And I got this book (that I picked out) from my daughter...
It's actually quite a thick book.
I love it.

Ah, but Nell has started picking out her own books...
... She picked THE HOBBIT!!! 

Well, she's a Carmack.
That translates into SMART.

I'll close with some quotes I like....

Grandmas don't just say "that's nice" --
they reel back and roll their eyes and throw up their hands and smile.
You get your money's worth out of grandmas.
-- Author unknown

My name is NO NO but Grandma calls me precious!
-- Author unknown

Becoming a grandmother is wonderful. 
One moment you're just a mother.  
The next you are all-wise and prehistoric.
-- Pam Brown
