Grandma's Back, with Photos
I just got back from visiting my son Peter and his family in New Jersey near Philadelphia. I'm so swamped right now with household duties I can't get out to the woods or the river. So I'm going to be like the doting grandma I am and post pictures of my grandkids. I'll pretend they're some kind of wildlife. I only wish I saw them more often near Saratoga's woods and waterways, and not traffic-jammed hours and hours on the New Jersey Turnpike away.
My son Peter Donnelly is a founding member of the rock band The Figgs and also plays bass in the Terry Adams Rock and Roll Quartet. He's also a doting dad and a loving husband to beautiful Sharla St. Rose. A native of St. Lucia who grew up in Brooklyn, Sharla holds the job with the family's health insurance. Every rocker should be so lucky.
Maya Elizabeth is now 3, a smart and lively bundle of cuteness who never stops. Except to eat cherries. That's a cherry pit between her teeth.
Sean Pierre is now 1 and about as adorable as a baby boy can be. He's as calm as his sister is lively and as sweet as the watermelon he loves to eat.
