Grandchillas Sprocket and Evo


Perhaps it is because 
so many of my friends have
become grandparents over the past 
year or two.
I find myself looking forward 
to the day
we have grandchildren of our own.

I don't wish for my children to become
parents until the time is right.
That is a given.

But, when Mikey used money received
at Christmas to purchase 
chichillas I found myself
calling them my Grandchillas.

I mean, 
I was in a store and saw their 
favorite treats....

I told Warren
I had to get them for my Grandchillas.
It just slipped out.
He looked at me strangely
but a term was born.
I came home all excited and told
Mikey I had gotten the raisins.
He nearly burst my bubble by insisting
on reading the label to make sure 
they were safe for his babies.

There are bad raisins?
Sold for human consumption???
But mine passed the test.

Preparation for days ahead when 
the kiddos bring their kids over 
with gobs of instructions to not 
do all of those things that were 
safely done with them.

I remember going through that 
with our parents.
Dropping the kids off with car seats
and swim floaties.
Instructions about this and that.
Only to have them roll their eyes and 
tell us that they had parented us and we
had survived.  
Back in the day seat belts were for 
sissies....let alone car seats.
Thankfully the law was on our side
for this one! 

I mean...
Warren still has a scar on his
forehead from his 
wild unseatbelted days.
Scary, I tell ya.
How in the world did we survive????

I am officially in training.
And I love my Grandchillas.
I can hold them, 
pet them....
feed them treats and
send them home.
To Mikey's room.

Where they keep him awake at 
night chewing on the cage door
or running on their wheel.

that is so sweet.

Hey Mikey!
Let me know when they run out
of sweets. 
I want to load them up!!!

These are the best kind, kiddo. They don't talk back, they don't WANT ... they just love. Chuckle! You are too funny, Becky.

Have a beautiful weekend ~

You and your grandchillas...

Good Morning Becky Sweetie...
Sorry I haven't been by in awhile. I have been ill since before Christmas and am just getting back around to visit my dear friends.

I love,Love,LOVE your beautiful grandchillas. They are so pretty. Love the coloring. I am afraid I would be scared to hold them, but I love looking at them. Already buying the grands some treats I see as well.

Hope you have a glorious weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Too cute! Some days I wonder how we survived. I remember cutting my chin on the ashtray attached to the back of the front seat in the car.

Aw, these are cute Grandchillas, Becky! You don't see them very often - kind of a novelty. Yes, I'm amazed that our children were able to grow up safe and sound with our parents around! JK!

What would we do without parents!
