And Now We Come To The Next Chapter In The Book of The Robin’s Nest…

As I mentioned in an earlier post, Heather started a new job and has what I think a horrific schedule.  Her schedule – Wed (2p-8p), Thur (8a-8p), Friday (8a-8p) every other weekend Sat/Sun (8a-5p) and opened everyday but Thanksgiving and Christmas. Keep in mind that she does not get to leave at 8p that is closing time and she is 30-35 minutes away….

Heather asked me not to long ago how do people work those hours with children. I told her most people with young children don’t work those crazy hours and especially if they don’t have any help. I am so very thankful I can help her with the girls.

The days excitement begins around 7-7:15a! I take Mia to Headstart by 8a and pick her up by 2p.  She has to attend otherwise she will “lose” her place in the program. I could keep both girls all day but Heather feels that Mia is learning social and behavior skills while obtaining basic educational tools (I agree) and it gives Nana a little break.

Maleigh will be starting Kindergarten August 10th and I will be dropping her off / picking her up (school schedule is 8:30a – 3:30p).

Now there have been a few days where I haven’t had to take or pick up Mia from Headstart (Heather’s Dad will occasionally help out with transportation) and Nikki, depending upon work schedule / location helps out.  But, I am always preparing myself for the duration of all day – night.

We are in full blown work schedule mode and let me tell you – it is a joy, a real joy, a treat, a pleasure being with the girls but also overwhelmingly exhausting.  I am coming off a 5 day work week with the girls being here from 7a-9p and Robin and I decided to let them stay the night Saturday night so they wouldn’t have to get up so early when coming to the house.  I was telling Robin Sunday this seemed harder and more tiresome than working outside the home – he laughed but agreed.

How can Nana and Tata resist?  They definitely have us wrapped around their everything!

I try to get a little work done around the house but that seems to be impossible due to two wonderfully demanding all my attention (only because I have never not given them my full undivided attention) grand daughters.  I was not the mother or Nana who did not or does not interact with their kids or grand kids.  Since becoming a Nana I am in the room with them pretty much all the time.  We watch TV, dance, play and if an option, take a nap together.  The thought of them being “by themselves” in a room breaks my heart.  I’m pretty sure it has something to do with me being a Nana now.  Okay I know it has everything to do with me being a Nana and older.

This post is a lot of gibberish but I wanted to give you a quick update.   Also, I am not complaining at all, I just wanted to share the beginning of this chapter in my book of The Robin’s Nest with you.

I have two award nominations to complete (I haven’t forgot or ignoring them) and a lot of blog reading to catch up on!

I hope everyone has a fantastic Monday!!
