We have had an amazing visit with Mr. R.'s parents. For us it was a chance to slow down and enjoy afternoon strolls, family dinners, homemade dessert and show off all the little things that Piper can do. Grandmom and Pop-pop Republican watched Pip for us Monday & Tuesday and they got their share of slobbery kisses, raspberries, giggles, growls, and Elmo.
They say a mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do. We never thought we would enjoy playing second fiddle so much!
