I had the best time Saturday when my daughter and granddaughter came up for the day. We always have a good time together anyway. I made Michelle's favorite, a dump cake, a request I might add that wasn't very subtle on her part. Thinking about it makes me smile. I can remember doing the same exact thing to my mother with fried pies. "I'm coming over this weekend, Mom, just in case you want to make fried pies."
Alivia will be two on the third of August. So we used the day to shop. They're going to re-do her room and she's going to start sleeping in a big girls bed. You know what that means. Visits during the night or early morning by a little munchkin who no longer has a crib's bars to restrain her. They've already added special locks on the doors to keep her from leaving the apartment. I don't even want to think about that!
The Back Yard a Kins...I probably spelled it wrong. I'd never heard of them but that's what they're doing Alivia's room in. Apparently she's crazy about them. When Michelle was that age it was Strawberry Shortcake and the Care Bears. Funny the things you don't forget.
We bought curtains and party things for her princess party. It's a little harder shopping these days with Alivia. She doesn't want to sit in the cart and likes to walk around the store. We have to keep our eyes on her at all times. Michelle has a leash for her but we didn't have it on Saturday. I've noticed that whenever we go anywhere I mostly do the grandma stuff while Michelle does the shopping. I don't mind. Isn't that what grandmas are for?
