Moments in the life of a gal who is a mom, wife and grandmother all the while feeling like a 20 year old! Discovering the mid 40's is the perfect stage to live my life to the fullest and finding myself all over again.

I was reading a nursery rhyme book to the grandkids.
I don't like to post pictures of myself but I felt it would illustrate my point to the story.
On to my anecdote, Josiah gave me a book to read. It was Mother Goose's nursery rhymes. I started reading and Jackson stopped what he was doing and plopped himself down. Action Jackson wanted to listen to me read. The others started to gather around me.
While I am reading, the children start to wander off. My son, who is visiting from Colorado, starts to laugh because the children were not paying attention. He teased me because according to him, I was reading to no one.
I knew just because they weren’t sitting in front of me like Jackson had done earlier didn’t mean they were not listening to me. At least, that is what I am telling myself. I do start to doubt myself, when I look at some of these pictures. I see the intensity I am projecting, while I am reading the book. I could have scared them away.
He may have been a little distracted at the time.
When I was finished, the two older kids gave me a stack of books to read . Job accomplished! They enjoyed me reading to them. I wasn't reading to no one. I was reading to all of them.
Now reading was a little tricky . I used to be able to read upside down but as I have aged, it has become increasingly difficult, especially without my reading glasses.
