one which even they youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent.
– Sam Levenson-
Most of you know there is nothing I love more than bragging about my grandkids. They have brought more joy to me than I can even begin to describe. I am amazed at times at the ability they have to bring a smile to my face so quickly and many times they don’t have to do a thing to make it happen.
My oldest grandson started kindergarten this last year. He was terribly excited about it. His birthday was in late September and they were a bit concerned at first as to whether he would be old enough and/or mature enough to go. At first they decided to wait till next year. Yet at the advice of his pre-K teacher they enrolled him a bit later in the semester.
Yesterday was his 100th day at school. It is tradition for them to dress up as an “older” person on this day. Needless to say he ate it up. He reminds me of my own little Benjamin Buttons. The later picture is him imitating a grumpy old man chasing ornery young'uns off of his yard.
From the day he was born this little man has brought nothing but smiles to me. His nature is warm and his charisma even warmer. I swear he could melt the north pole with his smile. Yes, I know I am partial yet even if he was not my grandson, I think I would feel the same. I think as I progress in life the one thing I will always be thankful for is the gift of grandkids and the youth they seem to give to me. A magic elixir I think it is. If only I could bottle it and put it to market. But then all you grandparents out there know exactly what I am talking about and exactly where you can get some.
