Grandparent’s Day: Part I



If you were shy like I was when I was little,

you may remember

that feeling of

something surprising happening


your mouth getting all funny as you tried

to not smile too big.

Let’s say you’re walking down the hall

to the cafeteria,

with your hands behind your back like the rest of your kindergarten classmates,

and all of a sudden you spot your crazy

grandparents (Us).

They’re smiling and waving and taking lots of pictures

and acting goofy

like they usually do,

so you muster your coolness

and change faces.


Because you realize

they are following you

to the cafeteria.

So you give up

and get your tray-

even though your grandmother

Ma Do (me) is acting like you are too little to carry it all by yourself-

and Poor Po (my husband) seems to be enjoying

the salad bar offered to all grandparents


maybe a little too soon

in Ma Do’s opinion.

Anyway, you plop yourself down at a table with your friends


start on your chocolate milk and dessert first

and ignore all of the craziness around you.

Sweet pictures of that day to remember:) Precious little one happy to have you there with him! Have a blessed day dear friend, HUGS!

Hmmm...I'd have to say I agree. Eating dessert with milk first is the only way to survive all the craziness!

We really need to look into setting up a marriage contract between yours and mine!

What a precious story. My parents are gone and I enjoyed Grandparents day with my niece and nephew who have none.
I sure did miss my 11 month grandbaby. He sure melts my heart. He's gonna be blonde like his daddy, mys on so this little fellow makes me think of yours.
I'm smiling.

I'd do anything that little cutie asked of me! If it meant holding off eating my salad, that's ok.

I'm impressed. Cool, calm, and reserved. Not too bad for a kid whose grandparents are stalking him!
:D Pat

How wonderful for you to live close enough to be able to attend. He's adorable.
