Apparently I missed a really important holiday yesterday - Grandparents' Day. As you know, I'm a grandparent, but I don't know that I really need a special day to recognize it. A holiday has no real significance unless someone calls you up to mention it, gives you a card or gift, or spends time talking about it all day. No one I knew even mentioned it, and in fact I found out about via Facebook.
As you know, my grand baby is a little young to grab her dad's or mom's telephone to call me for something like that, and since she wasn't mailing me any gifts anyway, I'm fine with it.
I'm still waiting for her to have a really intellectual conversation with me so we can hang out at the movies and discuss the plot, or to talk about the chemistry between the romantic characters in a very cool novel. Basically, I just want to be able to understand what she's saying at least 85% of the time.
Until then, I don't think we'll pay Grandparents' Day any attention.
