Grandparenting. What could be sweeter? Every week I resist the urge to share my grandmother stories, knowing that every grandmother has a repertoire of wonder from her grandchildren.
Today, I surrender.
Backyard dirt covering 2 1/2 year old grandson after a slide from a tree. Brushed off the worst of the mess from this perfect little boy and I said, "There! All clean."
"No, Nana, not 'clean'----clean and handsome. I am clean and handsome!"
Four year old grandson habitually awakens in the darkest part of early morning and climbs into bed with Momma and Daddy. Yesterday was unusually busy and he slept through the night, awakening with early light. Crawled into bed with Momma and Daddy, gave Momma enough of a hug to awaken her and he said, "Hi Momma. Sorry I am so late."
Beautiful 14 year old grand daughter bought fabric to quilt for a new cousin expected in August. Lives two states away and planning a visit so we work together on the project.
Seventeen year old just emailed his American History subject scores on the ACT and AP tests...ACT 780 out of 800 and AP a perfect score of 5.
This grandmother is totally swathed in blessings.
