Squeaky Shoes: Yes I Am THE Best Grandmother In the Entire WORLD

Squeaky Shoes: Yes I Am THE Best Grandmother In the Entire WORLD

When I saw #Eve with her nifty squeaky shoes I knew JMP was going to need some. Fast. Only one problem, I wasn't sure what size shoe he was wearing and it was like 4am in HAWAII so ... I just guessed. And I ordered THREE PAIRS in three different sizes. Because yea, I'm crazy like that.

First, I ordered these cute little cowboy boots. They are adorable but they're a little big. Then, I ordered these little sandals. I didn't love them but they came in a size that I thought he could either wear now or would be able to wear soon. Then, I found these adorable skull shoes, in the size his mother told me he was wearing (by then, she was awake and answering my text messages.)

Turned out, that size she said he is wearing is not quite the size he is wearing because when they arrived, they were too small. No problem. Grandma to the rescue! I ordered another pair in the next size up (and told her to send that small pair to her BFF's son in Guam.)

The new shoes arrived today and they are FABULOUS. Fabulous. Seriously.

AM I not the BEST grandmother in the freaking world? And is Johnny Mac Pippin not the cutest kid in the freaking world?

OMG! I'm Going to Be a Grandmother! Wait. What Does a Grandmother DO?

My son-in-law was released from the boat and came home to put the crib and dresser changing table combo thingy together. There's been a virtual baby shower and an in-real-life baby shower. Jenn is starting to complain a little bit because 36 weeks feels a whole lot more pregnant than 35 weeks. I'll be in Hawaii in a few weeks and Johnny Mac Pippin will be here soon and I'm back to saying, "OMG I'm Going to Be a Grandmother!" again. It's also started to hit me that I don't exactly know what that means.   Read more >

OMG! I'm Going to Be a Grandmother and What Are All of These New-Fangled Products, Anyway?

OMG, having a baby is a whole lot harder nowadays than it was when I was having them. Who knew something so basic could change so much in 25 or 30 years? Seriously, do babies (and parents) really need all of these new fangled products, or deluxe products? Take diapers, for instance. Even disposable diapers are more confusing today than they were 25 years ago.   Read more >

Hawaiian Travel Highlights: Oahu

When my daughter and son-in-law moved to Hawaii, we thought for sure we'd go visit because... Hawaii! But no. Something, or a lot of somethings, came up and we never managed to plan a trip. I had pretty much decided we wouldn't be able to go before they got orders to another duty station -- and then Jenn told me she was pregnant. Well that changed everything because no matter what might come up -- I was going to be there when my grandchild was born. No. Doubt. About. It.   Read more >
