So, gonna get weepy here, Peeps.
Ya know how I’ve been all Debby Downer about my fear of ending up like my Dad. I don’t need to go there again.
But this kinda relates.
This weekend, I have been enjoying watching Lala and Loopsy rediscover the Cabbage Patch dolls they got this Christmas. I’ve been calling myself Grandma and having fun with my granddaughters Kayla and Macy. 😉
This evening, the girls wanted me to teach them the night-night songs I sing each night so that they could put their babies to sleep.
So, I had Lala and Kayla on one half of my lap, and Loopsy and Macy on the other, and we rocked together and they sang along with me to Me & Bobby McGee.
I watched my daughters, so serious, so loving, rocking their dolls and singing quietly and I felt just especially blessed. It was the most lovely sight.
(stop laughing at me)
I hope with all my heart that I’ll be able to watch this moment unfold for real in 25 years or so. I will consider myself the luckiest Grandma on Earth.
