I am a mom of older children and have noticed that the time has come when I do not have the hustle and bustle of little ones constantly around my feet and life now seems to be a bit of a let down. Well life has changed and now I have more hustle and bustle then ever. I am the Grammy Nanny to my 3 grandsons.
I was savoring the time that was mine and now have to share it with everyone all over again. The growing pains are upon me again and trying to define who I am again. The upside is that I get to cuddle little ones again! I still haven't truly learned to hug myself yet nor to be understanding to my own feelings. Did anyone notice how hard it is to be nice and understanding to yourself? That being said I hope that you will be part of my journey into yet another part of my life.

Christmas Tree lighting in NY

So excited, I love the lighting of the Christmas tree in NY. I will be going to see it on Sunday. I am also hoping that I can finagle a little window shopping or gawking since they are all decorated then as well. So I have been on line looking for a map to create a strategy to see as many as my feet will allow me.
I did get to go on that Sunday. We went in by boat and came home on the train. Wow that was an adventure but that story for another day. The pictures I took aren't the best but I had such a great time. The maps did help out a lot because I probably would have not ventured all the way to Lexington Ave and 59th. Those were my first favorite windows and where I took most of the pictures.

The tree was magnificent. We didn't get a picture of us in front of the tree like the last time we went.

This whole column is covered in white painted shoes.

Love the over sized string of lights.

I liked this Mom's blog about going - http://mommypoppins.com/newyorkcitykids/holiday-windows-2011-department-store-macys-bergdorf-saks-barneys
