My Days Are Numbered

 May, 2013 
seemed a long way off
a year and a half ago.

With Running Man's blessings
and his total support
I agreed to become 
 the Nana nanny,
  watching and nurturing and loving 
these two little grand babies.
while their mamas returned to 
their careers.

I was committed for 18 months,
living in Denver during the week and
returning home on the weekends.

We wanted 
 these little ones to be able
 to stay at home as long as they could
before having to adjust to a different situation.

With the flip of the calendar,
my days are now numbered and
in just a few short weeks, my life will
change once again.

We've developed a pretty special relationship,
these two special little people and me,
and even without our daily play dates

I know we'll always have a special bond.

Until Next Time-


  1. These are the days you will treasure always! What beautiful photos to remember these special babies.

  2. What an amazing thing you did.....for you, for those kids, and for their moms! Amazing! And your hubby is a keeper, too! :o)

  3. Wow, what you have done for those little ones and their Mom cannot be measured! How hard to leave Running Man all that time, and now what a void will be felt without those little ones as a part of your day. Kudos to you and your DH for the selflessness of your choice.

  4. Your daughters have been very lucky to have a mom who would make a life change to give the little ones a good start in life. Are either of the mama's a teacher? I was just wondering if the May date would coincide with a school's out for the summer time adjustment.

  5. So happy for you to have had such special bonding time with your beautiful grandchildren!
    I'm sure it will be bittersweet for you to leave them soon.
    It's quite the sacrifice to be a weekend wife. (experience talking)
    Wishing you an exciting start to your next life chapter!

  6. Wow! You are an amazing grandma. Hope your transition goes smoothly. You're gonna miss those little sweeties.:)

  7. What a special time with your grandkids!

  8. Your daughters and your grandbabies are so lucky to have you!

  9. What a special gift for everyone! Now a transition for you.

  10. Those photos are so beautiful! What a wonderful time you've had!
