The Joys of Sharing my Daughter

My daughter is much like I was as a young child, easy to be around and most anyone will take her. The boys, they only get taken by their Dad because after all him and I raised ‘em so we know how to deal with them. They are a joy too, but my family is just used to girls and the family that may know how to take the boys are either too far away or simply not up for an overnight with high energy boys.

The daughter though, is only super high energy when around her brothers. Alone, she is your average ten year old girl who loves being spoiled by her Great Grandmother or anyone for that matter. Girls just love that attention. So not only do I share my daughter with her Dad; two days a week and every other weekend, but I also share Miss Ki with Great Grammy aka Grena {my grandmother}.

The joy is that Ki loves spending time at Grena’s, it’s great for both of them to have a strong relationship and Ki gets to ride Daisy {Grena’s horse}. I am scared of horses, they are beautiful animals but just a tad too big for me and I am fearful. Ki is not fearful, she loves horses so much and this past week all I got to hear about is just how excited she is to be able to ride Daisy and get up, get dressed and go spend time with the horses with my Gram’s Australian Shepard at her heels.

Ki loves time spent at Grena’s, even though she loves being home too, it gives her some space from the double trouble boy team and allows her to enjoy some much needed girl time. So today is Sunday, and Ki will return and I can not wait to hear all about her wonderful weekend with her Grena.

    She’s lucky to get time with her Grena – and riding horses is seriously cool! She’s at that age where she could use some alone time and I have two boys, similar ages to yours, so I know all about needing a break from it LOL!!!

    I’m with you, a bit wary of horses, but kudos to her, and she looks like she’s doing a great job!

    As for grandma’s, I think gram-time is great. My gram was one of my most favorite people in the world, and I always loved spending time w/her!
