Talon visits me from Winnipeg!

My daughter Krystal came from Winnipeg for three days. We haven't seen them since before Christmas, and so we were excited when they came...but I could not believe how big my grandson is now.... Jeremy weighs 21 lbs....Talon is.....GET THIS....45 lbs...and he is 17 months old...WOW!




Talon at Great Grandmas House









Unfortunately we did have some moments of frusteration...The family of the father found out Krystal was here when they drove to Winnipeg...(without contacting her first.....what's up with that?) They were mad when she wasn't there....(Again...why didn't they call first?) so they drove back to Regina...and showed up Sunday nite with no warning at 10 pm and wanted Talon. I was really angry....first of all...they don't even try to see him for months at a time...and then they show up out of the blue and want to take him for the entire night and day....I was all for saying forget it. I felt they could have come and picked him up for a couple of hours in the afternoon....it isn't like he knows them well...but Krystal didn't want to rock the boat, so I kept my mouth shut...as hard as that was....We ended up having to go and pick him up as well, when apparently the family lost their keys and couldn't drop him off.....We had plans for him, and didn't get to do what we wanted to because the other family can't play well with others....We did have fun with him though for the time we had him....He is a funny kid and a lot of fun...

Then when he came home, the poor little dude ended up with ear infections in both ears and cried and cried for two hours straight....Man those things are nasty...

Now he is back home, and on anti-biotics...so he is feeling better.....but we miss him....

Poor kid, glad he is feeling better. I wish your visit had been a bit less stressful! I am a little overly attached to Ladybug. If they ever moved. I would just pack up and follow them. I can't go more than three days without a Bug Fix.
