Being a grandpa is wonderful


I really can’t speak highly enough of the wonders of being a grandpa. They just bring such joy to the heart. i had been talking to my daughter Shauna now as it turned out last weekend they were having a Church Christmas party. Now somewhere in that conversation it came up that possibly granny Vi and grandpa could come for the weekend and babysit young Princess Malieka. We were all over that like white on rice. Took a little rescheduling, Vi’s doctors appointment on Monday but we were off. Normally, I am not a big fan of being out on the highway when temps are in the -30’s and 40’s but there are times when you just have to do what you have to do. This was one of them. A chance to spend time with the little princess takes president over all. We were so happy and excited about the idea, Nothing was getting in our way. Had a great time with Shauna and Jake. I won’t tell them but it was the little Princess that stole the show.

The skin on her cheeks and forehead may have even been worn a little thin from all the kisses. There was a lot of hugging going on. She is a little to young to understand the hug stealing game, hey that doesn’t stop us.

Shauna and Jake, thank you for the wonderful hospitality and for sharing time with the little Princess

    Bill….So glad you experienced such joy with your little princess. Obviously, it was so worth it for Vi to reschedule her appointment, and for you both to travel during such cold temperatures. It is not surprising as gradchildren are so precious. I have two beautiful granddaughters and believe me I would do anything for them. Their hugs and kisses go straight to my heart.
    Betty, I am so with you on this. Those hugs and kisses go straight to my heart and just melt it.
