 A lesson in humility for this grandma.

It was the first of hopefully many "Grandparent's Day" events at our grandchildren's school.  My husband and I were thrilled to have the opportunity to attend, and were greeted at the door.  Since our two grandchildren are only 11 months apart in age, they are both in the first grade.  We had decided that my husband would go with our grandson and I would go in the other first grade class with our granddaughter.  The classroom was beautifully decorated, and the teacher offered a warm welcome. 
It was so special!

Together my granddaughter and I worked at solving her word puzzle.  The class did poetry and sang 
cute songs together for the grandparents. 

Here is my husband with the grandchildren right before lunch. 

The children had decorated papers about their grandparents and had them displayed in the hallway.
It read..."My pa paw is loving."  "My pa paw is fun".  And then my part..." My ma maw has grate(great) chereoies"(Cheerios).  Really...that is all he had to say.  After "all" I have done for him over the years.  All the love, the time, the attention, and the teaching I did for him and he says, that I have
great Cheerios???

Well, I must admit it did give me a good laugh, and I am sure it will remain  in my family's memories for a long time.  Isn't that how life is?  When you think you might be getting something right, you
find out that it isn't as right as you might have thought.

I love the little guy and I will continue to serve him his bowls of Cheerios, but I now will do it
with a smile in my heart.

That's it for now.

Lessons in humility help us grow...right?

Thanks for stopping by.

That is so cute Judy! I smile just reading those words... these little ones have a way to saying it, don't they? One of mine wrote a paper in 1st or 2nd grade, and instead of extolling my virtues, she said ... my mimi wears spray tan on her legs. :)

I love their candor, even when they don't see just how wonderful we are!! :)

This post has me giggling, Judy. I have a feeling this will be something you will all laugh about for years to come.

It's the little things :-) How fun that you both were able to attend. My sons still remember the first time their Nanny and Poppa important for them to show off their grand parents!

What your grandson did, was make a memory! And like you said, it will go on for years. Love it!

Oh Judy! I am smiling. So often the grands go flying by me into the arms of Grandpa but then... as soon as they need a snack.. they know where to find me.

That is because even a simple bowl of Cheerios is special when served by his sweet grandma!

When John and I were at Noah's Grandparents Day, he was filling out a page that asked what special smells his remembers at his grandparents home. His answer was lint. When I looked puzzled, he said it was a good thing. He liked the smell coming from the dryer vent. I guess I don't need to bake homemade cookies for that boy anymore :)

Gotta love "inventive spelling". The only word I couldn't figure out was cheerios.
