How amazing children are in our life

Monday, March 21, 2016

My dear grandson is on his March break and this week I have the honor of taking care of him. He will be making his 5th birthday pretty soon and only now I have had the honor of spending such quality time with him. My son divorced his former wife last year and it was a very bad moment for all of us. She was having a affair with another man. When his ex was around only her mother would take care of my grandson. I would only be able to see him on Fridays for my family dinner. Now that they have divorced he has half of the holidays with his son. That is great for me. I get quality time with my grandson. My grandson and I went shopping. I noticed so many little special things about him that unfortunately I never had the honor to experience. Today I was on cloud nine. He was so well mannered, always staying close to me. He asked me if I could buy him a soccer ball to play. Of course me being his grandma bought it right away. He was so excited because when we got home I baked some coconut cupcakes for his birthday party. He also saw me prepare allot of other things. He hugged me so much. He was so happy that I was doing special things just for him. I told him that tomorrow we will do our easter egg painting project. His eyes just shined with happiness. My day was so special. I thank God for all these special moments. He fills my heart and soul.

I made him a special lunch. I also played with him. Taking good care of myself is important so that I can keep up with him. He has so much energy.

Here´s to our special little ones in our lives. We need to get fit to keep up with them... lol...

Have a great evening. emoticon

    What precious memories, for you and for him!
    Never forget that you can and will make a difference in his life, and he will remember all the fun and loving things you do for him.

    I was raised by my grandparents (my mom lived w us as well), and I can say I was blessed to be so. I am who I am today b/c of the Grace of God putting me in their care.
    Thank goodness for grandparents who step up and help out, no matter the cost.

    Hugs to you Grandma.

    Oh, Maria, I am so glad that you get to spend this quality time with your little one.

    Children are so important. I stopped by the store where my Daughter works yesterday, and met her boss. Her boss said to me, kidding, well, she must have been a handful growing up. I said, and got tears in my eyes, no, she was awesome and she is my joy.

    My Daughter came over and hugged me, and said, you are such a softie, Mom. Only with you, honey, only with you.

    Cherish every single minute!! I know you will.
