I've been the "Booty on Duty" these days, meaning that I've been pulling G-Ma duty so my DIL can work. My God, I see why women stop having children, well, most of the time, at least by their early 30's. I mean it's exhausting, this up every 3 hours for feeding time thingy.
(I do so apologize to any one that considers me a friend as I have certainly been less than. On top of all this, I am working diligently on a secret piece which I am quite consumed by. Please forgive???)
Now, Jaxon, my lil "*Bumby" as I call him, is a world famous grunter. Yep, he grunts and stretches, stretches and grunts, (loudly)all daggone night. So much so that I rarely sleep the entire time. Yes, it's a clear cut case of mixed emotions, this babysitting business, I tell you. It's similar to your MIL going over a cliff in your new Ferrari. But if the truth were known, I can't think of a better time in my life than the time spent with my lil Bumby Boo.
Now, I do realize that we all think our children and then our grand children are the cutest of them all, out weighing all pageant contestants and we convince ourselves of such. I can remember other mothers touting how cute their babies were as I thought to myself,
"OMG bitch your child looks like an alien outcast. He's got a flat head not to mention he looks an awful lot like you and you're as ugly as a poodles ass. Sorry!!!"Of course, in my youth, I thought my babies were the shit too. But now I can look back and see decisively and I shall put this as delicately as I can, you know just in case they read this; "They were all pretty...ugly, mwahahaha!!"
I can also view them, my sons at least, in an unbiased form, meaning that although they've all grown in to fairly good looking men, they're not the best looking fellas to walk down the Pike. Far from ugly though, each and every one of them shines, if nothing else because they are all charmers, especially the youngest who can charm the panties off a Princess.<--(A Babzism)
The point is, that in my wise ass wisdom (I can't call it maturity as I don't think I've grown up yet?) I suppose I am able to decipher "the good, the bad and the ugly," in my loving family. (Now, don't get it F'd up. I can also look in the mirror at myself and realize that, although my Mama raised no fool, I'm nothing to write home about nor am I the sharpest peanut in the turd)<--(Another Babzism)
So, without further ado, I'll say that , Jaxon aka Bumby(Bill's son) and Austen aka Lil' Man(Waylon's son)are in the running to not only break my heart but the hearts of many women to come who'll follow in my footsteps. God help them!!!
Unfortunately, Lil' Man lives in Iowa and I'm here in N.Y. What a charmer he is though, I mean he and Jaxs will take the world by storm! So, in getting back to the point, I do so firmly believe that Jaxon has got to be the most pleasant child I've ever come across. And I am enjoying him immensely.
A perfect day, in my perfect world would be to have all my grandbabies by my side. Until then, I guess I'll simply keep them all in my prayers and continue to ask God to place His Angels around them all.
In further News...I was just on Facebook and I quote myself as it is the sum of my parts as of late;
OMG Tami, I'm so old these days, I've been farting dust and crapping cobwebs. But I'm a trooper, I just tuck my tits back into my belt and keep on keepin' on!If you're my age, you'll feel my pain, lol! Then, my oldest son, Lee had this question on his status;
I thought it a neat question and I afford this opportunity to you, any and all to ask me this question. Yes, I do believe I have a false sense of popularity, ahem hahaha!!!
1 question, 1 chance, 1 honest answer. You can ask me 1 question (to my inbox) Any question, anything no matter how crazy, dirty or wrong it is. No catch. You'll get the answer within 48 hours! But I dare you to post this on your status an see what people ask you

*Bumby is short for "My Lil' Bumblebee," and here's why; He's beginning to get chubby like a lil bumblebee but they say that bumblebees should not be able to fly because they are aerodynamically a mess. Perseverance and they fly!
"It is a myth that bumblebees shouldn't be able to fly... that they can't fly, well, that's a fallacy since you can watch them fly with your own eyes. Interesting stories behind the myth though.
Since the myth became propogated by the media and general public with no facts to support it, for the longest time people just couldn't understand how these big fat aerodynamically impaired insects could get off the ground using such proportionally itty-bitty wings. Finally, scientists realized that there was much more involved, and in the past few years much headway has been made in understanding the bumblebee flight phenomenon. It has something to do with the way they use their wings and the lift generated by vortices that swirl behind the moving wing edges.
Here is a neat link abount a researcher who utilized lasers to study bee flight: http://physicsweb.org/article/news/5/10/9
