Yeah that’s me in my pajamas, in my sister’s backyard, soaking wet. Ghetto right? She had the sprinklers on for the kids and the bubble machine going. “Mama, it’s a party?” Says my four year old nephew. “Yes, yes honey. It’s a party,” says my sister. Yeah sure it was a party. I only had one pair of pajamas. They dried fine. I wore them to bed again that night. Wanna know what my nephew calls me, sometimes? Grandma. So. How was y’alls weekend?
Auntie, Grandma–whatever you are, you’re a good one. And a good sport!
Thanks Carrie! I sure as hell am a good sport! I ain’t got no damned sense!
Yes, but they’ll always remember you as fun. 🙂
Thanks Carrie! I hope so — all my hard work — shoot!
Your nephews must love you like crazy, Sandee!
Aww, thanks. I think they do. I sure do love the hell out of them!
I do love her like crazy.
Awww, how sweet nephew — Auntie loves you too and just remember, we’ll always have the sprinklers going for you.
Oh I love that picture..Go Auntie Gran, Go!!!
Yeah, Auntie Grandma Sandee they call me!
You must be the coolest Auntie Grandma, cos Lord knows it takes the coolest and sweetest aunt to do this. Plus i bet you spoil them like crazy :). Looking good auntie Sandee even in wet jammies
Thanks BB! I sure do hope they think I’m at least a little cool. I do spoil them. The older one, four years old, he knows I’m crazy about him and that he can get away with almost anything around me. I’m crazy about the one year old too, but he doesn’t know the full extent of manipulation yet — lol!
Ha ha ha. I bet when they are teens you would be the go to auntie for all things cool. Way to be a great auntie.
crazy and lucky… your posts are always so much fun
I really appreciate you saying that — thanks Unfetteredbs! I try, I try…
You’re probably the best Grandma Auntie ever! Your nephews are so lucky 🙂
Loving the wet pajamas!
Thanks Miss Four Eyes!
“…I ain’t got no….” Teehee!!!!!! LMAO!!!!!
I know right?! It seeps in somehow!
In this case, they aren’t pajamas, they are Victorian swim togs, and you are so very hip for being that retro.
Kathy, this just made me guffaw! That’s effin it! Love it! Maybe I’ll wear these to the beach with one of those granny caps, or ‘Victorian’ bathing caps — ooo hooo!
My weekend was not nearly as fun as yours. Considering the weather, running through sprinklers in your jammies sounds like literally the coolest thing you could do.
I hope you get a better weekend this time around PM. 🙂
If that’s a grandma in the photo, she’s sure as hell a looker one! 🙂
Glad to know who it is that I’m calling Mensa Girl. I like this post.
Thanks George! You are so kind and it’s sweet of you to say this. I’ve got to tell you, though my story was published by a Mensa publication, I’m not actually in Mensa — I’m waaay too dumb! 🙂 I jest and say however, that having my story published by their journal makes me an honorary member — tee hee!
I’m still callin you that because I like it. Published is better than membership. Few members get published, I bet. Where is the story? I wonder what Mensa minds find interesting enough to publish? 😉
Yay! People will think I have half a brain then — I was secretly hoping you’d stick with the moniker — ahahaha! Here’s the link to the story — just click on it to see it: http://www.calliopewriters.org/issue_128/NightTerrors.aspx. The story, Night Terrors, is included in my short story collection. It’s on Kindle but I’m having hard copies printed soon and will let everyone know. I hope you have a great rest of the day!
you dont look like a grandma at all…
