Grandmommy is flying home today!
My kids are going to miss her. They are cookie monsters and she is one cookie-baking grandma. I don’t think she should leave. I think she should stay forever. But I am grateful my children are able to have so many wonderful memories of loving grandparents.
What’s your favorite memory of your grandparents? Mine is when my grandmother sewed me a cloth doll like she had when she was a girl.
Or maybe it was the time we were at her house and she left all the food out for days before we got there (she was very old then) and we all got sick and when I went to the medicine cabinet to get some Pepto-Bismol pills, I took the pink pills out of the box and swallowed them down in desperation and ONLY THEN studied the little foil packets I’d taken out of the Pepto-Bismol box.
The pills were Ex-Lax.
Yeah, THAT HELPED. But when I think of it, I laugh and I think of my grandmother, and that can’t be all bad, right?
