Worn out

I have had my five month old grandson today and I feel worn out. Help am I going to be able to cope as he gets more active. I think partly the trouble is that he won't sleep unless being pushed in his pram or in his own cot, so I am walking around with him all the time.
He is a lovely little chap but hard work.

I am thankful that I can have him for a few hours
then thankful to give him back at the end of the afternoon
Thankful that I can snuggle up with a blanket in my recliner chair and have a little snooze
Also thankful that there is a Chinese/fish and chip shop just 5 mins from my home.

Isn't that supposed to be the best part of being a grandparent? Spoil them until they wear you out, then GIVE THEM BACK and go take a nap! Aahhhhh! :) Cutie!

He is a darling, Mary. Hopefully, as he gets a bit bigger, he will start to accept your instructions more readily - you may find he'll settle down to stuff at Grandma's just because that is how is IS at Grandma's... even if not at home!
But little ones are tiring - I'm always worn out when my niece has been here with her baby girl - an afternoon of playing, chasing her and running round after everyone and I am sooo ready for my bed!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
