Well I guess I fit that designation. The Jaimster returned home after spending his 2 week Spring break with me. It's amazing how busy he keeps me and how much I enjoy having him here. If we aren't working on his math, we are going to guitar lessons, taking scuba lessons or stopping by the Airsoft store. It's kind of lonely here today without him. Well I will be heading to SD  next week to look after him for the weekend as his Mom has an out of town wedding. Too bad it isn't hers. LOL. Then it's only a short time until he arrives for his Summer vacation which is 3 months and allows plenty of time to do a ton of things. Something to look forward to...

Hi, there Boorah:

Congratulations on those twins....  Brush up on your Baby Talk, and, if you're not doing so already, it's time to start working out 3 hours a day to get in shape for all the lifting and toting around...  Boy, are you going to be having fun.

Pat

Wow. It's nice to have so many relate to this especially since you are all people I like. A win win is always a great situation. To be able to have a positive effect upon and make a meaningful difference in a childs life has given me more enjoyment and pleasure than anything else I have ever done. It may be the reason that God put me here. It could be my ticket to heaven...

Congratulations Boorah. It's better than having kids. You get to spoil them. Their parents get to discipline them...

Some, Shaz.  I have two very great teenaged boys, fun, affectionate, loving, smart, responsible.  We're talking random breakfast in bed, clean kitchens, they iron and sew, do sports and art, get good grades, have long-term goals.  I have not ONE day of complaint with these guys.  If there's ever funk in the air, I will say the VAST majority of those times...it was ME!



GW,

I should have shipped my now 18 year old daughter to you for training.She is a Libra,,half angel and half snarling devil and let me tell, you,it fits !

I have about 10 auxillary kids at any given point in time. Known most of her friends since they were born. When she lived with me, we always had a house FULL of teens over.

A few times I had gone out grocery shopping and the very next day ( literally) most of it was gone ! Bottomless pits ! I love them but I cant feed 3 to 1o hungry kids all the time !

Actually I am his NINO, Spanish, I think for Godfather. He is 11 which makes me about 15 complete with a car and money. lol.  I have known him since the day he was born. His Mom is a single Mom who used to work for my Ex. I went on an extended trip and at the time she was pregnant and living on her aunt's couch. She started off house sitting for me, the Jaimster was born and they ended up staying for 7 years. Since my house has a master suite on either end it worked well. She turned her space into a studio/nursery apt. of sorts. At one time I emptied the breakfast room, padded it and turned it into a play room. My Ex owns a property mgt. co. so his Mom ran the household. She scheduled the maintenance, house cleaners, landscapers, pool guy, etc. A lot of them are still around. Worked great. Any problems were fixed immediately and I was always charged in a fair manner. Now the Jaimster spends his vacations and the summers with me. I send him to camp and we always go on a cool trip. This year we are going to China. Sometimes it's a little awkward as his grandarents also live in Tucson.

 

 

 


Wow Bill, that is even more special.  If only more people would open their hearts and give of their time to the other less fortunate Jaimsters in the world---what a wonderful world it would be.

Obviously you were Godsent to him and his mom.  What a win-win situation you are in.

Bill the Jaimster  and you are lucky to have each other. I know we have talked many times about your special relationship with him and his mother and its lovely, both for you and for him. He although young must miss you as much as you do he. Its a special bond isnt it with a young one. I have that with my ex partners daughter. Shes a joy and im allways pleased to see her.

China sounds like it will be a real blast. Got room for one more?

I dont know which of you is the luckier, Bill. All of you are blessed.

 

I never had the pleasure of knowing any of my grandparents, as they had all passed before I was born.

 

And I did not have any god parents either. I missed out on many common things lots of other children had. I knew it , too.

 

Please feel free to adopt me.

I loved hearing about your connection with the Jaimster.  I have a kid, 18 now, that calls me his "other mom".  I call him my "newest son".  Same kind of thing, I was in the right place at the right time to be able to provide something for him, and I am the one that gained something...a relationship that will last a lifetime. Family goes beyond blood, and it's so cool when hearts are open to bigger family.

Hi BillZ,

I think grandparents play such an important role in a child's life.  The Jaimster is a pretty lucky boy to have a grandpa like you.  Some of my fondest childhood memories are of times spent with my grandparents. 

Also, I would like to thank you for the "heads up" that you are alone and lonely now--I know that must mean, we will be hearing lots out of you here on the blogs this week---just because your nest is empty now, does not mean that you can misbehave--LOL!

Keep up the good grandparenting--hope the Jaimster appreciates all you do for him--if not now, I know he will later on.

Britt
