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.



  1. Very interesting perspective, but some truth is there. I want to have a real relationship with my grandkids that they can remember, pattern after, talk and laugh about when they are older having their own children and grandchildren. This type of relationship starts early in age though, but truly develops over time and as they get older. I am looking forward to my grandchildren very, very much.

    1. Get back to me once you've been babysiting for an entire month, in addition to working long hours. (smile) On a serious note, you have a nurturing spirit and will be an awesome grandmother. Hugs...
