This blog was formerly dedicated in 2009 to my Dad who died of Alzheimer's in 2013. It's been three years now...and I find myself missing blogging...so I am re-inventing my blog... because, after all, life is about moving through, and going forward...

Grandson Quips...

Today I was talking with my oldest daughter.  My eight year old grand son recently lost his lower left incisor.  He is very enthusiastic when he gets a loose tooth and vigorously pursues getting it out.  When he pulled it out, my daughter actually heard the "pop".  As she brought him some tissue to bite down on, he said, "I really had to wrestle with that tooth Mom, it was man vs tooth!"

With her youngest six year old son, he is especially endearing to her when he calls his feet, "foots" and "teef" instead of teeth.  The other day while doing his homework, he grew up before her eyes when he told her the plural of foot is feet and the plural of tooth is teeth. With mixed emotion, she told him he was correct and how proud of him she is...

These are memories worth writing down...

Hi. I couldn't agree more about writing these little things down that are said by our grandchildren, because they can so easily be forgotten. I'm so glad I found your blog, Donna!

These are such milestones...happy and sad at the same time.

I had a little girl in my class that called me Ducky. When she learned to say my name, Becky, it kinda broke my heart.....

Yep, definitely write these down because it will be nice to share it with them as they get older and you look back on their young growing up days :)
