Pure Sweetness

It’s so sweet when you haven’t seen your little granddaughter in a few days and she runs to the car to meet you and give you a big hug.  Precious memories are made of simple things like this.

bundle of joy

Thankful for the youngest member of my little family, an almost brand-new granddaughter, a dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty soon to be two months old.  I’m looking forward to sharing this journey with her and her big sister for many years to come, watching them grow and learn and be amazed by our universe, even as I am amazed and truly blessed by them and their presence in my life.  #gratitude

Thankful for a little almost-3-year-old girl who calls me Mimi and gives me sweet kisses, who loves my banana-peanut butter smoothies, but tells me to “stop” when I stroke her beautiful long red hair.  She’s growing up too fast.  #gratitude

Being Mimi

Yesterday, I picked up my little granddaughter for the first time from preschool at the Methodist Church downtown.  I’ll be doing that now on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and I keep her for the afternoon.  I wasn’t sure how she would react to me being the one picking her up.  When I got there, I could see through the open half-door that she was playing, then she turned around and saw me and ran over to the door.  When I reached down and scooped her up, she laid her sweet little head on my shoulder.  She’s ready for a nap by the end of preschool time.  It was just such a warm and precious little moment to be that someone special in a new situation for both of us really — she had gone a couple of days a week in the summer but never all during the week on such a regular basis.  Being Mimi is such a joy and I’m so glad I have this little girl in my life, yes, even on the days, like yesterday, when she deliberately stepped in the spilled yogurt and smeared it all over her feet and the floor, or when she  turns her water cup upside down so it splashes everywhere or throws things in frustration, and all the other things that almost-2-year-olds do.  I wouldn’t trade one minute of it for anything.
