It’s always been so interesting to me, this instant and impenetrable bond between children and their grandparents. There are so many times when my boys can’t remember names of their new friends, but despite miles and miles between us, they remember every precious detail of time spent with their grandparents.
I think that it’s its own kind of magic.
Especially when there are cousins and, well, Kentucky Fried Chicken involved.
And marbles. Gram is actually Dr. Gram, keeper of extremely fun games and teacher of TAG kids. Her house is an insane treasure of quirky games and things to build.
And some fun companions.
She just watches and gives hints only when necessary. It’s pure awesomeness.
Know what else she gives?
Her whole heart. Every bit.
Grandma always made you feel she had been waiting to see just you all day and now the day was complete.
