Good mornin everybody, I'm new and I'm gonna say a few things about myself. My name is Patty, I'm 56 soon to be 57 in May. I have 2 grandbabies, which 1 of them we are raising. I'm semi retired from Landscaping. Been married for 38yrs. LoL I forgot what it's like raising kids. Oh my goodness what a job. We had to change our habits due to being parents again. Which all is for a good reason. Or grandson is in the terrable 2 stages now. I laugh at my hubby, he is always saying. I'm going to the garage. I tell him no your not. Our other grandson is 5mths old. I have been watching him for our daughter. She's a new mom & had a bad relationship. She told the father to get lost. So now she's a single parent. He lied about working & etc. We wanted grandbabies but we never thought about  things working out this way. All is good we just take 1 day at a time. I guess the good Lord new that my husband and I could handle it. It's been tough but we will make it. We love our grandson's and we will do the best as we can. Here's a photo of them..The oldest 2yr old is Luciano & the 5mth old is Owen
