With all of its ups and downs, life is still better than the alternative, but I could do without so much drama. Those of you out there who have big families.....do they get along? How do you handle it when they don't? I have a hard time dealing with my family when they fight. My youngest daughter is a daddy's girl and the rest of the kids hate it. It causes a lot of friction and I don't know what to do about it. I fight with him about it but it doesn't change, and I don't blame my other kids for their feelings. And the youngest takes advantage of it, too, and that makes everything worse!
So I've spent the last 24 hours wondering if its all worth it. In my heart I know it is, but motherhood is a bummer sometimes. And so is wife hood. Oh, well, enough of that.
Today is my grandson's birthday and we're having a big spaghetti dinner and cake and ice cream afterwards. He is 11 years old and a very sweet boy. (Most of the time. He is after all, a boy!) The spankings have already begun! One here and one there, all day long. Poor kid. But he is enjoying it, too. Don't take what I said earlier wrong.....I love my family very much. And I love being here for these special days. If I could have the grands without their parents, I might just do it.
Well, this is a short posting, but I have to go wrap presents and cook dinner. Later, Gramma G.
