The Best Kind of Tired

Through the layers of deep sleep I hear a small voice. “Can you help me finish putting together my Lego set? Now?”

It's an amusing little whine...except that it’s 6:20 a.m., which means that not enough hours have passed since my head hit the pillow.

“OK, buddy, let’s see what we can do,” replies RT, pushing back the covers and rolling from bed. Big feet and small feet softly pad down the hall.

Another little voice. “Grandma, I’m hungry.”

I can see I’m done sleeping. Tired as I am, it’s the best kind of tired there is.










































Saturday Centus time again and Mrs. Jenny must have known what was going on over at our house this week! This week's prompt is in red above. Be sure to visit the other Centusians by clicking HERE...and no whining!!

This was great. Grandmas never get too tired to play. The young minds are so wonderful. Showing them new things they seem to absorb it like a sponge does water.
Beautiful grandchildren.

The grandchildren climbed in bed with me every morning when we were at the beach! Wonderful photos, Anita!

That's pretty adorable. I agree- it's a good kind of tired.

6:20 a.m., ye Gads! That's when my dog wakes me up, it's an awful time to get up!

But then I know by your nice story that you are a nice Grandma for them. And the pictures really prove it. Those kids are soooo cute!

Oh they are adorable! I think a whine from them WOULD be amusing, and maybe even at 6:00 a.m.! laurie

Absolutely great pictures. What fun. Lucky grandma and grandpa. I guess the two grandsons are kinda lucky too.

Jo said...

They are sooooo cute!

And I suspect ALL of those activities were completed by 9 am.

That's what it feels like with my Grandkids anyway!

Anita. I love visiting you. Someday I'd love to meet you!

You are a gem!
