This past week we had the good fortune to have one of our daughters and her baby girl stay with us for a week.
It was amazing to have her back under our roof even for a short time and we enjoyed every minute of it. I especially loved it when she would come upstairs every morning with her baby in her arms and hand her over to me while she got organized for the day.
We are so proud of what great and caring mothers both our daughters are and our grandchildren are very lucky to have them.
When our grandaughter first arrived for the week she sat in my lap for over an hour and I knew it was going to be a good week and it was. She was an absolute peach for the entire week and it was such a pleasure to have the time to bond with our beautiful angel.
I fed her, changed her got her to sleep and played with her happily. It was a great treat. When my husband and I had our childred we were both working and had a nanny and it clearly is a very different situation when you are on your own.
I think our daughter enjoyed having me and our girl help look after her little one but her wonderful husband, who is very involved with child care, is back now and they are all safely back in their own house.
We feel so lucky to have both our daughters here with their partners/husbands and children.
We are looking very much forward to Canadian Thanksgiving as we have so very much to be thankful for and not only that the Toronto Blue Jays won the Wold Card game last night in the 11th inning and are headed down to Texas for the 7 games with The Rangers.
All is right with the world.
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving to all our Canadian friends and family.
