Everyone knows about how tiring it is to have a new born in the family, what with sleep schedules that really are not schedules at all. Everyone has sympathy for the poor parents, especially the mother of the new born.
But what is it like for the grandparents? No one talks much about that.
In my continuing effort to inform readers of MillersTime about this ‘new’ station in life, see the two pairs of pictures below, taken in the middle of the day.
Grandpapa’s Eyes Are Open, but ten seconds later they are closed. Ditto for the grandmother.
Nonna’s Eyes Are Open, but ten seconds later they are closed too.
And what about the newborn?
Despite her mother’s attempts to instruct her in the necessity of walking 10,000 steps a day, the one-month old chooses muscle building exercise.
Note to new mother from Grandpapa: Your precious princess told me she didn’t know what “walking” was nor did she know the word “steps.”

But “reps” is a word she does know and she is learning to count to 25 so she doesn’t miss any.
With both of you going to sleep after holding Lady Princess Fair for only 10 minues, this is demonstrable proof that new-born babes have extraordinary ESP powers they can focus on others to achieve their purposes.
She knows it is her job to help her parents and grandparents to get their 10,000 steps a day.
That is why young people have the children. All grandparents learn how to sleep with the little ones on their chest or by their side ( when they the little ones get bigger)
Nice try, but you’re getting no sympathy vote from me. Jealously yes or is it envy? Both I guess. Wish I had a little grandbaby to lay on my chest. Waay!!!
