Thank You One and All!

Dear Friends,
Thank you for the words of encouragement concerning my fall, and the great advice for handling future young teen squabbles. I envision following Karmyn's advice of using a bullhorn to startle the students to stop fighting. Or use a megaphone to follow fellow teacher, Margaret's advice to "yell sternly, "STOP FIGHTING NOW, GENTLEMEN" or if one knows the kids' names, use them as many times as possible." I will save the use of the taser that the wise Willowtree suggests for inside the classroom. The next time a student says, "Whadda I do?", ZAP. Or the little darling that says, "Is this worth points?", then ZAP. (Kidding, I am kidding, but one can dream.)

On to other matters, awhile ago the lovely Pamela of Dust Can Wait recognized me as a rocking grandma. Being a grandma may be my fondest role. I am fortunate to have two lovely granddaughters.


Our oldest is three years old. She is a ballerina (and soccer player).


Our youngest is about three months old. In this picture, she is telling secrets to her grandpa.

Adorable granddaughters! I hope you're feeling better and I LOVE your dream use of the Taser. Kids sleeping? Zap. Kids questioning why they have to do anything? ZAP.

Beautiful little girls. I look forward to the day I will have grandchildren. Right now my brothers have a few and when I play with them I love it just as if they were mine almost. So I know I will love it.

Willowtree said...

Hmm. I think that the youngest would still have that "new baby" smell.

I love it when you share family stories and pictures. Both granddaughter are beauties for sure. Those grandkids put a whole new spin upon life. These are some of my favorite days. Thank you for sharing the pics with us Molly.

The grand kid are super. It is all love and fun. The parents do the hard work.

They are both precious! Little girls are so lovely. It's been 22 years since we've had a baby girl in this family and I am keeping fingers crossed that the next baby is a girl. :) Too many boys! :)

Simply wonderful pictures..ahhh, the smell of a little baby and the touch of soft skin, I miss it I have got to say.

karisma said...

Oh they are simply adorable! I am also wishing for a baby girl in our family or friends, we have had a run of boys for the last ten years. While they are just as nice, we miss the little girly fun!

Im glad to hear you are okay, I was starting to get a bit worried.

Oh, how I long to be a granny.

A couple of years ago I stopped one (19 year old) student in our large college from kicking another - whom he had knocked on to the floor - on the face. I did this only by shouting at him, but then when he ran away from me, I ran after him. I was 55 at the time. Exactly what I had in mind, I'm not sure. Fortunately he, being six feet two and young, got away from me, being five foot three and not really built for speed.

Thanks for wandering to my blog. I must admit that I had no idea how many people would find me through my mom's (Swampy's)site!! Your grandbabies are adorable! Little Miss P has a ballerina tu-tu but she is scared of it and WILL NOT put it on. Your little one har GREAT HAIR!!

Thanks for sharing your pics. They are just so sweet! Oh I feel that baby pain again. I wish I could have another one now. Then I remember dirty diapers. *LOL*
