Grandpa Jim has been coming over every day for the last 4 months to help us work on the house. He's been great and his craftsmanship is wonderful.

Today is his last "regularly scheduled" day with us and I think we're going to miss having him around every day for conversation, lunchtime, etc.

Especially Monkey.

Whenever Jim comes later than usual or the few times he hasn't come at all, Monkey is usually over by the addition yelling "BAA-PAA! BAA-PAA! BAA-PAAAAAAA" and doesn't seem to listen when I tell him that Grandpa is running late or not coming that day.

So it will be interesting to see how we both do now that it'll be just the 2 of us all day long.
Monkey will be going to a little "daycare" over the next 3 weeks while I do a freelance job, so that will also be interesting. He's never been in a full-day situation like that before.

And who am I kidding, it'll probably be harder on me than on him :)

Anyway, that's our update for today. We're both excited to have the house done and sad to have it done because I'm sure we'll be missing Grandpa a lot...


  1. I know Grandpa Jim will be missing you both as well. WE talked about it over pizza tonight. About his special relationship with Cole and how good it makes him feel. Though he won't be there every day, he will always be here for you and your family. Love Mom:)

  2. Grandpa will miss Cole and you as well. He's always here though. It has been a very special time. Tiring some days, great stories others, but all in all I think it was a wonderful experience (though he did come home whipped most days). We know how he hates to leave anything undone.
