This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

In the company of little boys...

I am watching my two grandsons, (ages 7 and 5) while my eldest daughter and her husband went out for dinner.  We are engrossed in an Lego Indiana Jones Adventure Follows II game on their Wii. They are on part 2, but the younger one keeps pouncing back and forth between the game and playing Tic Tac Toe on my iTouch.


This is pretty exciting stuff, but when we conquer and win enough "studs" (money) then we have plans on watching Aliens in the Attic.  My eldest grandson keeps telling me how funny it is. He assured me it won't scare me...


My daughter just called.  She is bringing us home Panda Express. The boys are excited... the younger one was eating some of his french fries from his Burger King lunch with his Dad... They LOVE Dad to babysit because they get "junk food".


I am totally amazed at how efficient both of them are on computers, video games, and basically, any tech type toy... Their Dad teaches them all this stuff so they can all enjoy it together.  I tried it, but quickly was "fired" for messing up so much.


Earlier today, my two daughters and I were out for the day while her husband watched the boys.  We all had a great day...


Opps...the youngest one just asked with a "pretty please" if I would play Pictureka... I can't refuse that sweet face....

Sounds like you are enjoying yourself - and I know they are too!

I can't seem to get a handle on the electronic games-it's like I'm looking at a foreign language. But I try, and they appreciate that because it gives them something to tease me about when I don't get it!

I know you're enjoying seeing them.

Hi Mari, Hi Wander---Yes, I am...I just love to sit and stare at them. Watching their movements and listening to what they say. Memorizing the way their faces look. They are growing so very fast.

I too don't do to well on the electronic video games. As I said in my post, I got "fired", which means they took the controller away from me because I messed up so bad and there is a time limit on each level.

I get "cool Grandma" points for trying and for sitting here while they play.

I always ask a child if I have a computer problem. They know everything.

Aaaahhhh, how sweet. I sure had a nice time visiting you and the grands there. What a warm touching story. I really enjoyed that!
