I'm Practicing For The Next Phase of My Life!

Look at me........I'm morphing into the next phase in my life.........I'm becoming grandma. I'm going through a massive metamorphosis and lovin' every minute of it :)


It wasn't long ago that I was a Mother of 5 little kids.




The next thing I knew, I was the Mom of 5 teenagers.



Then I became the Mom of a married daughter.


Before I could blink, my Little Angel ushered me into the next stage of life.......Gramma hood!


Thanks for letting me practice yesterday on the newest addition to your family, Lisa. Little Carson is just adorable........like the rest of your growing clan. You're the best Gramma I know and I'm honored to be able to have you as my mentor!
But, no matter what you say, I will NOT give up my platform high heels! My grand babies are going to learn to appreciate a good pair of ladies shoes if it's the last thing I do :)
Don't forget that today is Metamorphosis Monday which means you should make sure to stop on by Between Naps on the Porch to see all the other change going on out there in blog land! Just click here http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/2009/02/welcome-sixth-metamorphosis-monday.html

Wonderful Met Monday post. Congratulations!!

Congratulations. All I can say is if you think you loved your kids you are in for a shock. You will love those grandchildren EVEN more. They are awesome. With my first I kept him at home with me for weeks. I held him while he slept and while he was awake. Hubby said you know you can put him down don't you?...why would I.

How sweet, congrats! What will you be called...Meme, Nanny, Granny? Decisions, decisions! Love the shoes, if baby is a girl, she can play dress-up in your shoes.

First, I have to say, great take on a Met Monday post! I loved reading it! The photo of you with your small children and your words about how fast it all goes made me tear up a bit...

Second, there is no way that you are old enough to be a grandma! I had to scroll down to see more pictures of you to see if that first picture was really you or not! Your high heels are killer! I don't know how you are doing it, but whatever it is I hope I look just like you when it's my turn to be a grandma!

Happy Monday!

Hip, Hip, Hooray and Yipee! I'm so so happy for you Tamara. There are no earthly words to explain how wonderful it is to have grandbabies who love you SO much and whom you SO love in return.
Congratulations! : )

There is nothing, absolutely nothing, like being a grandma! How fortunate that you will likely have so many!

Who walks in those tall heels? Now, that is an awesome grandmother.

Wow they sure do grow up fast don't they! I think being a gramma is the bestest! You can spoil those chillen' and send em home to torment their parents with things like "Grandma always lets me!!" hehe! And those heels are hot! You keep wearing them for as long as you can girl! *winks* Vanna
