Cooking with Kids – and playing with babies – the joys of being a grandma!


I truly believe that the happiest time of my life is right now! There again, I have been blessed to believe that many times in my life- except when I was writing exams – which seemed to have lasted for decades – I guess with 4 degrees 3 of which are post graduate, it did last for decades! Even my work life did not seem as important as the time I now spend with my grandchildren. I watch them change and grow every day – and I can contribute mightily to that process. What a great joy! The twins Noah and Gabriel are now walking. WOW! It’s true that having children while young is important – the energy that it takes to keep up with them, while watching that the four and five year olds don’t get themselves into trouble – its a job for more than one grandma! Fortunately Noah and Gabe love their rolly cars – so I spend a fair amount of time running up and down the street with them in their cars -here I am one recent Sunday-  aren’t they adorable?Noah Gabe Larraine Rolling babies 2013 March

And a few months ago – they change fast!

Fortunately all four grandkids love my music and so we play a lot of the CD about Sam, the Broken Robot and they love to dance to the songs.My Sam, The Broken Robot CD is fortunately one of their favorites! And I am gratified that at four years old, Jonah will turn on the CD in his room ( which he shares with his big brother) and listen for half hour on his own. Makes me SOOO happy!

The Tickle Me Song is one that they play a lot. I hope you enjoy it too!
