|Here he is at four. (Sniff!) Look at those cheeks!|

Layman's Movie Corner, and you should click on the handy link I embedded there and check it out. It's fantastic.
I'm going to have to wrap this up, because I have a full day of Grammy-ing ahead of me: first babysitting for son #3's two older children while his wife takes their baby for her two month well-baby check-up, and then later babysitting for the triplets so that son #4 and his wife can go out for a birthday dinner date. It's a busy life here in VA, and it becomes more obvious every day that we were meant to leave our house in NH and move here, where we can be a part of the daily lives of our kids and their growing families.
So, that's the way it is here at String of Pearls...as of today, I have four sons who are IN THEIR THIRTIES, and my youngest is 25!! Yikes, I can't even believe that. How in the world did we get here? I can still remember chubby little lads running around the house in nothing but diapers as if it was just last week. Life is much too short, I tell ya.
Squeeze those babies of yours, mamas. Enjoy every minute. (Well, maybe not every minute! Some of those minutes are just not that enjoyable, let's be honest--sometimes bedtime can't come soon enough; but you know what I mean.)
Happy Birthday to two of the finest men I have ever had the honor to know. The fact that I once grew you inside of me, that I was your very first home...well, God has blessed me more than I ever deserved to be blessed, that's for sure. [Heart-eyed emojis all over the place.]
