It’s a whole new planet.
A land where Grandbaby rules supreme.
A land of baby bassinets, bibs and bouncers —
Yes, bouncers. As I write, I’m using my left foot to gently rock the grandbaby in a ‘bouncer’.
My foot and I practiced beforehand. You need to be gentle.
Now, you may remember that I’m an un-domestic goddess – ghastly at all the fine arts of homemaking and mistress of the messy home office. But one thing gave me pride: the rest of my house was usually tidy.
Well, not anymore!
Every room of our house – including this once-gleaming glass-topped coffee table — is punctuated with baby things!
Bedroom, livingroom, kitchen, bathroom, everywhere…
Stuff the parents bought (like the activity mat 2 photos above), but mostly stuff they were given by kind family and friends (like this baby bathtub above and the high chair, below).
Stuff she won’t use for another few months.
And stuff I didn’t even know existed.
Goodbye, tidy house! Hello, sweet baby!
Our family couldn’t be happier.
