GROUP THERAPY

Have you ever been in a group therapy session? It doesn't matter what the circumstances were. Some sit around on couches and cushy chairs, some sit on pillows and mats on the floor. OK, so that's all Grandma J remembers about group therapy. Well, that and looking at all the people and trying to figure out what the h.e.double toothpicks made them so wacko. Maybe wacko is too strong a word. But it's just a people watching instinct Grandma J has....

A favorite pastime of mine, is people watching...sitting in the mall and wondering just exactly what some of the loons do for a living, or trying to imagine what kind of sex life person they are attracted to. Sometimes it's a matter of figuring out who told them they looked good in size 3X low rise hot pants red and green checkered sweats.

Anyways, Grandma J was at her daughter's house yesterday....because her granddaughter called and said she missed her wanted to have her BF over, but couldn't without an adult in the house.




Never wanting to smother her grandkids and be deemed uncool, Grandma J brought a back-up chaperone....Phillip Johnny Bob. But things got a little too quiet up in the loft....so she snuck up there to see just what the gang was up to.




This scene struck my funny bone, and the diversity of characters and intent reminded me of group therapy. click picture to enlarge

Of course, another event made me happy and sad.....



My grandson got his braces....he's growing up fast, which of course means Grandma J is getting younger.


And.....they are the color of his favorite team..the Arizona Cardinals, red and black... and so is his new blackberry...geesh!

So basically what you're saying here is that a kid young enough to wear braces is higher tech than I am? (It's true.)

No, that wasn't your main focus.

Your main focus was obviously getting the "Police PJB" onto that white, upside down bowl that is doubling as P. Jo Bo's hat.

Excellent job, once again!

Designer NFL braces. Much better than the wire rack I had in my mouth. At least he has something to smile about. I'm talking about the BlackBerry.

So funny....a much better chaperone than Mom, dad or grandma is always an annoying little brother/sister. I let Lo go to the movies w/ a boy and I made her sister sit next to them...Ha ha.
Love the picture..you make me laugh so much.
Love the braces. Jealous of the crackberry. I have a nice gate, but a crappy phone. :0
PJB is fab.

No worries about that boy as long as he stays interested in video games - hehehe!

Yes, hanging oout has a whole new meaning to the younger generation...like the time I heard nothing from a group of three friends of my daughter only to find them all on lap tops...I asked, "what are ya'll doing?"

They replied, "We are on Myspace together, chatting".

WTH?

Love that bear!!! He is just too cute.

You are the coolest Grandma ever! I want to be just like you when I grow up!

...having a little brother around is probably safer than having an adult in the house!

Love the braces!

He is so young and he has a way cool blackberry? Kaish wants a phone and I said that was insane. When are we not together? This growing up thing is not going well for us at all. Not at all!

I hope his braces do not hurt him. I will pray for him tonight!
