Here’s my precious granddaughter, Kyla Grace (age 10 months), all smiles in the arms of her mommy Kalyn during our trip to the Smoky Mountains. 

It was her first family vacation, and she had lots of fun with her cousins, aunts, uncles, parents and grandparents.

But Kyla was not so happy during the last two hours of our trip home.

She cried, and cried, and cried some more. 

During the second hour of her loud serenade, I was prompted to add two more items to the list in my last post:

 11. Just laugh when the grandbaby is the one driving everyone’s nerves raw. She is not your responsibility and she doesn’t want Grammy right now anyway!

12. Make sure you keep extra control of your teenagers when babies are crying. Baby screaming makes for teen screaming….and they are my responsibility!
