So I'm waiting...waiting for a new cast member to our family. A new monkey to our circus. I say that because my sister and I have a new motto that we love!
Not My Circus...Not My Monkeys!
It's an old Polish saying reminding us to deal with our own life and problems and don't get caught up in other peoples drama and craziness. A great reminder to all of us. We certainly have more than enough to do just rounding up and keeping our own monkeys in line!
We have a new little monkey in our life! I haven't introduced her before now and she will be two years old in I believe February. So without further ado I introduce to you Baby J!
|My Grand Niece Baby J|
You will all remember that our Ring Master, my dad passed away last year in July. He never had a chance to meet Baby J in person. But he did get to see many pictures of her and every time he did he would talk to that picture like she was right there with him.
Baby J, hopefully someday you will read this blog post and if you do I want you to know that your Tata knew you, he loved you, you were part of his circus and you will always have a special Angel in Heaven just for you!
I am just obsessed with taking pictures of this child because she is so darned photogenic! And she is so smart, she did everything before schedule, walking, talking, everything!
I am so lucky that I get to have my mom live with me. I consider myself even luckier because my wonderful nephew, daddy of Baby J wants to make sure that Baby J knows and remembers her great grandmother.

My mom is just smitten with this little girl. This is her only great grand baby. My sister has only boys and this is her first granddaughter. I don't have a grandchild, so I'm an honorary grandmother to this one.
Someday I know that Baby J's daddy may get a job where his hours change or since he just finished the police academy he may get a job where he has to live in another town and we may not get to spend every Sunday morning with this Angel, so I relish the opportunity to know her and I squeeze every bit of joy out of it. Every Sunday I will proclaim in this circus to be Baby J Sunday and I'll post pictures taken that day so I can keep a record for her of how much she means to our circus!
