With this visit I could tell such a difference in my little girls.
They comment on so much as they wander through my cottage. They like looking at the small items on my desk. One comments on the red glass heart - holds it in her hand and tells me she loves it. They pick up the special stones, pictures and books.
I find myself looking at items that have memories - through their eyes and a special meaning is renewed.
I watch as they carefully fold their clothes - put them in their bags - before putting on pajamas. This is new... grandma would usually fold :)
They want me to tell them stories of when their mom was little. I tell them about our years in the old farmhouse. They laugh at many of the stories.
Their vocabulary is changing and I smile at the words they now use.
Their choice for lunch a local restaurant that makes the best pizza. My eye caught an elderly couple eating and a glass of wine on their table. I made the comment "maybe grandma needs someone special to go out and eat with - what do you think?" the oldest replies "grandma that decision is really up to you" - I smile at the answer.
Not knowing the little one was in the bathroom - I opened the door and was immediately told "grandma this is embarrassing" sorry was said and the door immediately closed.
They entertain themselves with little DS games - I do not think I could use this - look like tiny computers. They read and watch special dvd's they have brought.
I find them so entertaining with all their comments and questions. They are just growing up too fast...
One thing I know - is when they are around they make me smile and feel loved. Better clean the kitchen.
Wishing Peace to all....
