Why They Smile

“Grammo, when people look at me they smile.”  “Do you wanna know why?”

“Probably because they think you’re weird.”

“No Grammo.  They Smile at me because they think I’m cute!”

But, of course.

Today and Everyday

…. grandchildren are truly amazing.  I’m so proud to be a “Grammo”.  Happy day to you all!

Conversation with a Princess

OlyviaWhat is your favorite color?  Pink

What is your favorite food? Apples

What is your favorite drink? Chocolate milk

What is your favorite movie? Frozen

What is your favorite song?  Let it Go

Who is your favorite princess?  You

And all this time I thought she was the Princess!

Just when I thought nothing in life could surprise me …. as laid in the floor with my granddaughter coloring in her Mickey Mouse coloring book we have an innocent conversation.   She continues to color and belts out the answers to the questions without giving it a second thought.  I’m speechless.   After a few moments of silence,  she asks  “What’s the next question, Grammo?”   Innocence.  Sweetness.  Beauty.

Reason for the Season

You know it is time for some classic Christmas movies when …

Can you tell me the name of the man in the big red suit?  Yes Grammo!  That is Santa Clause!  Very good Olyvia!

Do you know the name of the reindeer with the shiny red nose?  Everyone knows that’s Rudolph Grammo!  Oh, right again Olyvia!

What about the name of the snowman?  Grammo, that’s Olaf.   Why, yes. Yes, it is!

I hung my head not knowing whether to laugh or cry.  But I knew for sure we’d be watching Frosty the Snowman very soon

What We Learned Today

While we think Grandkids are the most precious people who walk the earth, they think we are.

Four year olds have a vivid imagination and are much more creative than we are.

There is a real difference between glossy paint and flat paint, but either way the Texans shine.

The Difference a Year Can Make

Last year a 3 year old rockstar

This year a 4 year older dancer

I can’t wait until next year!  Happy Birthday Ms. Olyvia Loralye!

Love, Grammo

Why you should never ask a three year old to smile for the camera

Schooled by a 3-year old

When a little girl gets invited to a birthday party for one of her little boyfriends and the theme is “your favorite super hero”, you apparently don’t make her wear this:

This has a boy on it.  And it is obviously meant to be worn by a boy.  I have officially been schooled in female super hero attire:

Thank God the next party theme is “Frozen”.  Hopefully I can get that right.  Although she was in shock when I told her I didn’t know how to do an “Elsa” braid.  Really? Let it go ….

Selfie … already?

Yes.  She did this herself.
And she’s only three.
What comes next?
I guess we’ll wait and see.

She is also quite the artist.
Maybe a cat? Or a dog?
No nothing simple.
She drew a fish-frog.
