Napping and Over Reacting
That is a cute picture of Chimi, but this is an even cuter picture of Penelope. Her Mommy and Daddy have been taking her hiking with the mega-carry-me back pack Linda got them for Christmas. Sarah said it was a beautiful day. Pen is so comfy in her pack that she fell asleep! Taylor has actually been running 5 miles with Penny on his back. He said she LOVES!! it, smiling and laughing the whole way.
When Linda saw this photo, she didn't think "Wow, look at that beautiful scenery and happy family!" She thought "ACK! You are standing too close to the water!" How did she get so overprotective from being a Mom to being a Grandmother? She would like to encompass Penny in bubble wrap or make her wear a helmet, elbow and knee pads while she plays. Taylor used to jump off the deck into snow piles and ride his bike over homemade ramps. She would just shake her head and keep making dinner. In fact, when she posted the Noah pet farm pictures the other day, she can't believe she let him actually touch the farm animals. What if they had fleas or germs? What if a baby lamb nipped his fingers? What if he fell in a pile of poop? Yikes, she better chill. Growing up, Linda would ride on busy streets in the back of a pickup truck, play on the train trestle over the river and drink right out of the old, rusty hose in her backyard.
