Granny Nanny

Well I have successfully completed the first week in my new (albeit temporary) job – Granny Nanny to this guy.

Grandson #3

Darling daughter, Annie, returned to work after a 3 month maternity leave and I’ve come to Boston to hang out with Andy for about six weeks.

Super bonus: I also get to see these guys.

I’m a very lucky gal.

Andy and I have pretty much spent the first week playing, reading books, singing songs, showering each other with kisses and watching the relentless snow fall.

This was Annie and Jerry’s adorable house when they moved in last summer.

And this is what it looked like last Friday, after the record breaking 10 day snowfall.

Crazy, right???

The good news for Annie’s first week back to work was that she had a snow day before she even started. The bad news was that she and Jerry had to struggle through a terrible week of commuting, including turning what should be a 45 minute commute into a 2 1/2 hour nightmare.

The really crazy thing is that we are due to get EVEN MORE SNOW.

According to my new BFF, Channel 7 weatherman J.R., we might have an additional 20 to 24 inches of snow by the time this storm wraps up on Tuesday.

More Snow

No problem for Andy and me. We will just stay tucked inside with The Little Blue Truck, Cows That Type and The Pout-Pout Fish.

We’ll be just fine.

Because neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail will hamper this granny nanny’s efforts in carrying out her important – and super fun – job.

Yep, I’m a very lucky gal.

  1. Oh what fun…the grandkids, not the snow. I grew up in Boston, many family and friends still in the area. Some of those snow piles look taller than the height of cars. Take care and stay warm.

  2. Stay safe with all of the snow! It’s turning out to be a nightmare of a winer. But at least you have a sweet little baby to keep you company. 🙂

    • That is true! And I’m sure the snow will melt eventually so I can take him on a stroll. Of course I might have to come back in June for that! You stay warm and safe too!

  3. What a sweet post, Mo. Of all times for you to be here!! At least you have that sweet baby to snuggle. Counting the minutes until the 21st!

  4. Yikes! That weather is a LOT different than California’s. At least you don’t have to go out in it.

  5. If you have to be snow-bound, a cuddly baby or two is just the cure! All that dark hair looks so soft and delicious smelling!

    Stay snug and warm.

  8. Granny Nanny-I like that! What a great time to spend with those adorable grandbabies. At least you are practicing for the winters here in Chicago when you make the permanent move 🙂 Stay warm guys!

  9. Aw – I wouldn’t mind being snowed in with a grandbaby! Not now of course {furiously biting my tongue and knocking on wood} but someday.

  11. That snow is crazy! And here we are on Canada’s wet coast with absolutely NO snow on the local mountains. One ski area just announced they are not going to be able to open at all this season. And look at you. Wow. I actually love both the photos of A’s house. Those icicles? Astounding.
    Enjoy your Granny Nanny time Mo.

    • I’m telling you, we should pile some of the snow into tanker cars and send them to California to battle the drought and some of the snow in refrigerated rail cars to send to Canadian ski resorts!

  12. I say you grab Andy, and the twins and head for San Diego or St Petersburg!

  13. Oh this melts my heart on so many levels! Now if all that snow would just melt….

  14. You have a great job and a great attitude….your daughter and son-in-law are so lucky! Even when they are battling the commute, they know that the Supreme Person to be with their child(ren) other than themselves, is ON THE JOB!

  15. I didn’t realize you were in Boston already – I need to add you to my “thinking about” list. It has been rough up there! But, if I could stay inside with that little bundle of cuteness, I wouldn’t mind a bit. Hugs to you and the kids! Stay warm!

    • Yes I came in right after blizzard number one and just in time for blizzard numbers 2 and 3 with 4 on the way! Once this mess stabilizes we can make a plan to get together.

  16. Sweet gig! (I would have totally dug tunnels in the snow for you to crawl around in).

    • Eli, tunnels in the snow would be amazing! And since the backyard is full of snow up to the top of the fence you’d have lots os space to work with. And yes, it is a sweet gig, indeed!
