STORIES OF A TOO YOUNG GRANMA? YEA RIGHT….
BY PATRICIA FOX
It seems like life was going to continue on without hitches and I was going to be posting every week. But as we all know life surely does not work that way.
Just to bring you to snuff: Lady Sofia is now 4 years old and almost two years ago she became a big sister to her not so little brother Jackson Tate. Lady Sofia has given me a great ride during her short 4 years. You know as a mom you always think your babies are just so smart and clever and plain with- it. Then they grow up and you realize, why they were pretty cool kids and pretty smart. Then you have grandchildren and your big head just grows ten fold because you now think your grand babies are just beyond awesome.
So here goes my story.
Lady Sofia is truly a brilliant little girl. Not just because she is my granddaughter but because she possesses an extensive vocabulary. Truly, I promise. While she was a mere three year old, she would walk out of her pre-school and say something like "grans, it is a really blustery day" Come on, what child speaks that way? Insert obvious grand mother pride, Lady Sofia, of course!!!
Well she is a smart little lady but with that smarts comes a lot of other smarty pants behavior. Yet all of these behaviors become adorable the moment you put the toddler in a nice dress and a bow. I keep telling my Lady Sofia, "your are never done till there is a bow on it." For quite some time I thought this would be the only little girl I have ever known in my life to never ever wear a bow on her hair.
I told you how can you possible stay upset when there is a face full of love and gusto staring at you?
If we could only stop ourselves in the middle of the day and just really breath in deep and just love the moment you are in just like a child. It would make each and everyday a priceless day just like this moment.
This was also Lady Sofia's brother, Lord Jackson Tate's 1 st christmas 2014. I just wanted to share how exciting and vibrant our old "empty nester" life has changed.
To be continued.
