Love in the palm of my hand.

What advice do I tell my grandson?
I listen to him.

Back in the Bogs

After a lovely trip on the train on Sunday, I am back at Breezy Acres here in the Bogs.  Little Wookie and I are getting reacquainted. I might be biased but I swear he is the most adorable boy in the world.

I have taken a couple of walks around the pond, but most of my time is spent with Little Wookie.  Blog time is mostly nonexistent. I do peek in on you now and then, leaving a Like behind.

I had forgotten how wonderfully exhausting caring for an almost brand new baby can be. Just looking at his cute little face is better than a cup of coffee when it comes to getting reenergized, and playtime, when Little Wookie is smiling and laughing, is one of the most wonderful, magical things in the world.

At the end of the day, I sleep better than I have in years.

The little dude will probably wake up from his morning catnap soon.

Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be.
