My How Things Change!

Well I was all set to talk about hats today. About how some heads really look good in hats and others (that would be mine) not so good. But things have changed. Willy Nilly is going to be born on Saturday, so today is all about babies, or grandbabies in particular. First, let me show you what I made for her.

No, not the real kitty, that's Phantom.
Her mom requested knitted toys and this is what I have so far. Bunny by Debbie Bliss, Elefante by Susan B. Anthony, and Kitty by Lillian. I have a bunch of others in my queu. But I really wanted to tell you about the joy of being a grandparent. Too many people believe that it's because you can give them back but that's not it at all! It's because you no longer have the responsibility of them. That's their parents' problem. All you have to do is enjoy them. You can laugh at all the things you can't laugh at when you're their mom. You can do all the things you didn't have time for when you're the mom. It's like having your babies back but with unlimited time and patience and no other responsibilty. I now know why my grandparents loved me so much! I hope you all get to be grandparents.
I forgot another reason, when the grandchildren get a little bigger, you have a common enemy...hee hee.

Love the 3 knitted toys! Elephante has been on my to-do list, but I made Elijah (by Ysolda) first.
