My Doodle turned 7 a couple weeks ago. This little girl calls me "Nanny." Everytime she see me she runs and screams, " NANNY." She really makes me feel special. I watched her from 6 weeks til about 5. She then went to big school full time. My heart was broken, I mean really broken. But our friendship has continued and we still have such a special bond. I see her often. Since my son and his family moved to the town I live in, the distance is the only reason I don't see her more. She is like a grandchild to me. She now has a baby brother and I watch him off and on. I met Doodle and started watching her when my oldest granddaughter was born. The two of them are very best friends. So are our families. We are always included in celebrations and etc. I just love being a part of Doodle's family and her being a part of ours. One day I went to pick her up at her big school. (She was 5) She ran and screamed and called my name. Her teacher came up to me and said that she could only hope that someone someday loved her as much as this little girl loved me. Thank goodness Doodles' grandmas are okay with our realtionship. They kind of laugh about it. I tell everyone that someday Doodle will come to get me at my nursing home and take me for rides. Love this girl.
Okay, moving on, getting so sentimental about my little girl.
Wildlife has been driving my doggies crazy. They have been barking alot and that hurts my head, alot. The deer are running through the yard in multiples.
Now, the latest have been wild turkeys. They march through the yard one by one to their own little beat. I have counted at least 20 at a time. I am sure it is the same flock (is that what you would call them) that I have seen at other places close to our home. That shocked our dogs for sure.
I start my new job next week. I am excited.
Not excited about the early hour part but I am excited. I thought back and have figuered out for the last 38 years, "
Back to school" has always been a part of these years. First all my kids, then me working in schools, then watching teachers children and this being my second round at directing, (this time co) an after school program.
No, I don't get to buy new clothes. I will have to buy new ones when I ruin the ones I have. (BLEACH,
PAINT, you know kids stuff) I do get a lanyard with a picture and a special scanning thing to get into school. I feel really important. I also have to update classes....
I am headed to the post office to mail swap packages and mail snail mail cards. (also a swap)
I just love this blogging adventure. I have met such wonderful people that just "wow" me. You guys are great. I just wish I could have lunch with you all someday and give you a great big (((((HUG))))). Thank you so much for everything.
