First Day

My granddaughter is now ten months old, and my daughter has returned to work. The first full day I babysat, I didn’t feel like a new grandmother; I felt like an old woman. When I decided to write my blog, I felt that babysitting would make me feel young. I was dismayed after the first week when I felt so old. After the second week I hit my stride- I felt young, wise and energetic. Funny what a difference a week can make. Confidence has rekindled my knowledge. I needed it. I wanted to see life’s continuum, but I didn’t want to age with it, and now the “age” has made me feel revitalized, reinvigorated.
