We got home, played, ate goldfish crackers, played some more and then it was time for bed. He went to sleep with no problems. And actually he slept through the night waking up around 6:30am. We only had one small problem. I woke up about every hour to two hours just to listen to make sure AJ wasn't crying. Of course if I was awake then I'd have to get out of bed to go to the bathroom, which woke up DH. Now he usually doesn't wake up when I get up, but figured he was sleeping lighter than normal just in case AJ woke up.
So, AJ's first "sleepover" at Nana's house was successful as far as AJ was concerned. But pop pop and Nana are going to have to learn to sleep better when he's here. We were very tired this morning! :-)
Recently someone said to me that being a grandmother is "all the fun without all the responsibilities." As I've thought about that I have to strongly disagree. While my responsibilities are different than that of a mother, I am still accountable before God on what kind of example I set before my grandchildren.
As a grandmother I can pray daily for my grandchildren. When they are with me I have the opportunity to read Bible stories and tell them about Jesus. If my children aren't walking with the Lord or going to church maybe I could ask them if I could take the grandchildren to Sunday school or VBS.
As a grandmother I still have a spiritual responsibility to my grandchild. This is a privilege. This is a gift!
