A certain, special someone is celebrating her second birthday this week. Miss Madison is turning two, and is every bit of that two-year old. She’s head strong, feisty, sweet and loving. Madison spends two days a week with me at Camp Grandma, and we have fun-filled, exhausting days together. Her favorite things to play with right now are Playdough, and her dolls.
Last week Madison had a moment with me that I will always cherish. We have a little routine together in the morning after breakfast. We get dressed, brush our teeth, and then I fix Madison’s hair. On this particular morning I had Maddy sitting up on my bathroom counter. We had to get her hair wet just a bit to get it put up into a little, tiny pony tail. Once we got her hair all situated, I was just about to lift her back to the floor, and I got this huge unexpected hug, and an “I lub you Gwamma”. Oh my goodness, I had to pick my melted heart up off of the floor, and gave her a big squeeze back right away. I told her, “ I love you too, Maddy”. This is one of those sweet, loving, ever-so-short grandma moments that stays in your memory bank for a long, long time. The fact that the “I lub you” was not prompted by anyone else made her saying it to me all the sweeter. I lifted Madison back onto the floor, and she ran off to play, as if nothing had happened. As far a she was concerned, it was just another normal morning. But for this Gwamma, it was a special morning filled with love.
When is the last time you had a “Gwamma” moment?
