So now, forty years later, it hangs in my upstairs guest room that also houses my "baby things" (baby bed, rocker, little Tyke car, tricycle, toys, etc.). It was one of the things I kept from my parents' house after they had both passed away.
I am certainly finding out that the little, maybe trite, saying is certainly true.
I haven't blog lately but I did want to write a post about the fun week we had with our oldest granddaughter last week.
I had been trying to find a time to have her come and stay all summer. But there was always something coming up to prevent it. We have had a busy summer and her parents are busy also, so it just hadn't happened.
But I finally found a few days that we could all make connections and this girl was ours for a few fun days!
Four-and-a-half year-olds are the perfect age I have decided! As a grandmother who is feeling the "where-did-my-energy-go?" part of life, this age child is not as hard to keep up with as a two or three year old! (Although I did keep my one-year-old baby girl for a week in July and did fine!)
I would have loved to have Harper's little sister also but I have not ventured with two of them at one time. Hollis is precious and I am planning on keeping her by herself soon. I don't think you can get to know your grandchildren's personality unless you keep them yourself.
So this little post is about our week. It may be of non-interest to you but as I said before, I wanted to make a post to remember this special time with her at this marvelous special age!
She spent so much of her time outside on the porch with our golden lab, Bobber. She would just sit and "talk" to him.
