Thank Goodness for Nana!

One day when my son Tyler (4) was very small, my mom pulled up outside, here to watch him so I could work. Hat on her head and umbrella in her hand, I swear I thought, “My mom looks just like Mary Poppins!

Just about every week since Tyler was born, my mom has come over to watch him (and now Austin [2] too) while I work. Tyler and Austin adore all of their grandparents, and especially my mom. They call her “Nana Train” because she has a huge bin of trains she often brings.

Each night at bath, I ask Tyler and Austin what the best part of their day was. Often  they say, “Playing with Nana” even if she wasn’t here that day. If someone they don’t see a lot, like my Aunt Judy, comes over, they always say “Playing with Aunt Judy.” Otherwise they say “Playing with Daddy.” Interestingly, they never say “Playing with Mommy!”
