    Post Designated Monster

    When you hear the words great grandmother, what do you picture? A sedate grey haired old woman, sitting quietly at a family gathering while busy activity happens around her? Perhaps baking cookies?

    I have two great granddaughters, soon to be 3 and 1 years old. The younger has now learned to walk and is very proud of herself....but the girl needs some hair on her head....seriously...perhaps some Miracle Grow would help.

    Her older sister loves movies like Minions and Monsters Inc., etc. It used to be that when my son would call and say, The girls are here, that I would go over and watch her play or sit on the floor and play around with a toy she would hand me. Occasionally she would take my hand and lead me down the hall to the room where all the toys were stored, so I could open the door for her, and maybe carry heavier objects like her doll house out into the livingroom. At one visit about two months ago, I had barely arrived when she snuck up behind me and whacked me on the backside. When I looked around in surprise, she collapsed on the floor laughing. It was an invitation for me to chase her. Now whenever I visit, she looks at me hopefully and says, Monster? It has become my job to chase her around, making growling noises, holding my fingers like claws, while trying to catch her. She doesn't do that to her grandpa or her parents, although she does like it when my son tosses her up towards the ceiling or jumps with her on his backyard trampoline. But the role of Designated Monster is all mine.

    Oh, the grey haired woman....not me. Still have long blonde hair with some white blended in. Definitely not prim and sedate. I did take cupcakes over there yesterday.

    Just thought you all might enjoy a little humor in these grim days of dirty politics, terrorism, and and immorality.

    You are a blessing to your family.

    I barely saw one grandmother at that, growing up, and never had a large extended family.

    They are lucky to have you.

    Isaiah 6:8 I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “ Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?”

    Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

    Matthew 22:9 NIV
    'So go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.’


    I'm praying for you daily!
    I get my Bibles here

    That's so sweet! You must have a little bit of silliness in you that she loves!

    I've learned over the years that silly people (like myself) just have more fun.
