My 15 month old grandson - the miracle baby my kids were told they could never have - cried (ok, fussed) for me not to leave his house yesterday afternoon. I had been invited for Easter lunch and the Easter Bunny had left some things for him at my house, so I HAD to make sure they made their way to the intended recipient. (His favorite part was the balloon. And the bunny left his gifts in a bucket rather than a basket, so we shoveled eggs in and out several times.)

He literally fought his way out of Daddy's arms to run to me at the door, insisting I held him. I don't get to spend much time with him, so I was certainly surprised at his reaction. How happy am I that we have bonded!

BTW, he learned to blow bubbles through the bubble loop for the first time yesterday. And for the first time, he said the word "yesh." Close enough for Grammy!

Also BTW, I was visiting with the lady who was Kelly Clarkson's HS choir director a couple of weeks ago. She also chose to be called Grammy by her grandbabies, for the same reason I chose it! ha (you know, because neither of us will ever have one any other way)

I hope your Easter held many happy, memorable moments, too.

That's a great Easter memory for you.
You deserve a Grammy Award.

Maybe even an Emmy or Oscar or Devon

Ya know, some of these tender moments here don't strike me quite so tender as that.

Thanks for sharing your very happy moment with us.

Hit the spot with me too.

Grandchildren are the reason we had to suffer through the antics of their parents. They are so much fun. What a warm fuzzy for you. Congratulations!

I am happy for you Jank-wonderful memory. Yesterday, of course, my kids called to wish me a Happy Easter. My oldest grandson got on the phone and didn't know it was him as his voice had changed. I was with them in their younger years (5 grandsons) but have missed a big part of their growing up. they used to visit more frequently but as everyone knows times are tough and Mi. is among the worst so not so often now. I miss them. Cherish the time you have with them- Linda
