Connections: February 20.18

2 Comments

Yesterday it happened

though I was adamantly opposed;

inevitability

didn’t make me more composed.

I argued, put my foot down,

but the truth was right out there:

my granddaughter was taller

by a hundredth of a hair.

  1. Been there, done that, felt the same way. 🙂 Who knew when we were given the opportunity for the best job in the world, grand parenting, that those kids would grow up that fast? Love them dearly, but I wish I could hold back time just a little. 🙂

    • Yes, “just a little.” We do want them to grow up and have their own (good) lives, and we know the world will be a better place for having them in it, but still we miss those babies. You’re so right about the best job!
