The Trifecta of Grandmotherhood

Yesterday morning, I stopped in at Audrey’s house before heading to visit my Mom at her rehab center.  (She is supposed to come home today… fingers crossed!)

What I didn’t expect, though, was… if all bets are on grandparents, the Comment Trifecta of Grandmotherhood.

First, while I helped 2-year old Benjamin spread cream cheese on his bagel, he poked his finger into my neck and said, “I like the squishy in there.”


Next, 4-year old Alex said, as I removed my glasses to clean them after being sprayed by a flying cup of milk, “You look better with your glasses on, Grandma.”


Then, 5-year old William said, “You know, Grandma, people get shorter when they get old.  I think this is happening to you.”


I had a feeling that 19-month old Henry might have a thing or two to say about me… if he could actually say them.


I’m thinking this old horse is still ahead, but I’m wondering if there’s such thing as a quadfecta… for, you know, when Henry has a thing or two to actually say.

  2. Oh, my gosh, this is HILARIOUS!!! You might have absorbed them unnoticed one at a time, but all at once! WHAM-O!

    Ditto Bacardi Mama: 57 in 52! YOU ARE NOT OLD!

  3. Oh my! So sorry but this just made me giggle! Kids…they keep you humble. My son told me this week that I’ll die way before him since I’m so old. And, my daughter told me that she likes my hair better when it’s not grey. You look marvelous and don’t let anyone tell you anything other than that!!

  4. LOL! Oh, Sharon! You are too funny! Thank you for my morning laugh! Your grandsons are too cute…and you are such a gifted writer.
