I’m discovering I can get way too serious before I know it. I hate it when that happens! I have to just stop and take action on myself and do a “route recalculation” or I will become dull and you don’t want to be around me.…..OH MY!!!….
Caeden stays with us and the play begins. I’m finding out that I have things that I “thought” were important, like keeping the house straight, checking email and it goes on and on. You know what I mean?
Then the smell of crayons……. can you smell them?….
We were surprised how his coloring had improved, staying in the lines now….
We didn’t take time to swing this time, “Why didn’t I get out on the porch this summer more?” Now the cold weather is coming and it will be too cold to sit out there. Hey, I missed some summer sounds and sights this year….too busy! Right now Caeden is calling from upstairs wanting me to come see this new computer game and how he is winning at this game. Ok, practice what I just said, stop for the moment. One day I will look back on this time, revisiting this valuable moment knowing my grandson wanted me to see him win in this fight with a giant in a game some computer whiz created. Wouldn’t be surprised if one day Caeden will be creating these games his mind runs that way.
Later that afternoon we baked Gingerbread cookies and created funny gingerbread men.
He could not stop eating them. “Can’t just eat one”, he said, “these things are addicting”.
Yeah, that’s what I thought, so today we might have to bake some more because that batch is gone.
