"Don't remind me," I always replied.
As someone who sees them every day, it would be easy to overlook the differences in my children, but these last two months they've really grown up. Every single day I'm amazed at their vocabulary and how much it's growing. They're using longer, more complex sentences. I can just imagine how my Grandma feels since she hadn't seen them since Christmas.

My cousin gave my Grandma her 80th birthday present early....
One of my Aunt's pulled out some Legos, but the Bambinos and my couisn's daughter, Avery, were just to young to play with them. They mostly pulled them apart and tossed them around. Bug likes pouring out the big Legos we have and listening to the sound of them as they tumble out of the bucket. He also likes the feeling of pouring them on his lap. Silly kid.
It was so, so, so warm in my Grandma's house with all the people in there. If my children actually liked being naked, I would have at least taken off their shirts. Bug laid down, put Legos on his forehead and would gently shake his head to make them fall off. A few minutes later I glanced over and saw this.
As Bug slept on his bed of Legos, we were going through some of my Grandma's old papers (she still has ration books from the war!) when I turned to see this tender moment between her and Peanut.
spend time with my Grandma the way I did when I was younger. My Aunt Jill would probably be astonished to know this, but Eastern Washington is my Happy Place. It's where I go to unwind, relax, slow down, listen to the songs of the birds, the lapping of the waves at the lake, the bouncing of the basketballs on the court, and the giggles of my children in the background. It's where I go to be surrounded by love.
I just wish that the Bambinos got to spend even the tiniest amount of time with their Great-Grandpa
