The Best Kind of Busy

I left my dishes in the sink. I didn't get more boxes unpacked from my move in December(!) like I had planned. My son was supposed to get his room clean and practice his state capitals. Hubby didn't even get to finish his dinner.

But we were the best kind of busy--the kind that brings a new little grandson to our family. Mason was born at 6:25 p.m. yesterday, so he is a little more than 24 hours old. And in that short 24 hours, we have already decided that he is perfect.
Megan, my daughter, is doing well. Baby Mason stayed up with his dad, Matt, until 3:00 a.m. playing Free Cell. (Addict them early, that's what I always say.) Big brother Levi is happy to not be the youngest anymore.

Anyone who doesn't believe in miracles should hold a newborn for fifteen minutes.


  1. awwww, congrats! He's beautiful.

  2. Randi,

    I wish you joy with your new grandson. Mason has every chance to grow up happy and wise with such a grandmother as you.


  3. Look at that precious little angel. I want a grandbaby sooooo bad. My son and his wife won't cooperate yet no matter how much I beg.

  4. Jill: He does just smack of cuteness, doesn't he?

    Robert: Thank you! Too bad wisdom only hit me once I was a grandma. I could have used some of it when I was raising his mother. :)

    Kim: Well that has to be all kinds of frustrating! I guess you'll have to rely on the newly unleashed vixen? Or better yet, tell THEM that if they don't hurry up, you'll have to rely on her.

  5. Congrats! He looks so.. baby! Oh, how I miss those days!


  6. Daisy: He smells very baby too! (In a good way)

  7. Congratulations, Randi! It's always a wonderful thing to have a brand new hand to hold and a new set of ears to read to.

    Great last line.

  8. Thanks, Writer Dad! And a new grandchild who only loves me for my Wii!

    Congrats on your new "baby" too! []


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
