I often talk about Little Leo but today I am going to talk about “My Blain” my oldest grandson who is now 7yrs old. When he was a baby he loved his nanna (me) so much and would always prefer to be with me over papa or marmo (his father’s mother). He goes to Shortland public school and is in 2nd class; he lives with his dad from Monday to Friday and goes to his mother’s from Friday afternoon till Monday morning. According to his dad (Jono) he is happy living with him and according to his mum (Natasha) he often wants to go back to living with her, I think he may want to go back to his mums during the week at times because his dad can be stricter then his mum. I think many mothers are not as strict as dad can be, not saying all mothers because I am sure there are some bloody strict mothers out there. However I know my daughter and I know she can be a bit of a softy at times and at other times she can be a bit over the top with discipline.
Anyway moving on Blain is a very loving boy he loves his little brother “Daemon” who will be 1 later on in the month. He also loves his cousin Leo and when Leo and Blain are together they like to run amok and are loud and so full on……………..lol
After he started school I went from having him one night a week till only having him sometimes during the school holidays, we would have him more during the school holidays but he gets bored here and often will say after a few hours that he wants to go home.
Blain often will call me his “fat nana” does this bother me………………..no…………………I see it has him just saying it how it is, I know he doesn’t say it to hurt me and I have no doubt that he loves me so much just like he did when he was a baby. He often will call my mum his “nanna with the yellow hair” he told me last time he was here that his misses his other nanna the one with the yellow hair, then he said you know “your mother” that nanna………….so I took him with me over to my parents’ house for Sunday lunch.
Blain loves his superheros and this is a picture of him dressed as Spiderman and this is a photo of him giving his brother a cuddle, and the last photo is of Blain and Leo on Christmas morning.
