WE have two sons, both have went thru some rough patches in their lives and have caused us many headaches and heartaches. But today they are good men. They are opposites but they love each other and get along.
I am enjoying my oldest son. He has his first grandson that he can see and touch often. He lives next door. Our first grandson was brought into the family. A cute red headed boy full of life and so stinking mannerly. He came to meet us when he was about 5yrs old I think. The first night he climbed right in bed with Sherry and me and slept between us.
But later his brother was born in Walter Reed. Christened: Benjamin Aaron (Named after my dad and Sherry's). Our first natural grandson and I got to know him as a baby! WOW, nothing like that baby-grand! I took him to work with me. Fed him, changed him and loved him.
Now watching my son and his grand, I laugh and say, “Grandpa’s are so silly!”
He smiles back and says, “You are right!”
You that have grands know exactly what I am saying. I have enjoyed ALL of our grands. I have hung swings from the rafters of a framed house and cut toys from the scraps.
( Me teaching Matthew Dillon to shave!)
(And the youngest, Luke, driving the motor Home, all the kids go to do that~)
We were fortunate, they have all been well mannered good kids. NEVER a fit in a store when I said, “No.” The toy was replaced and they walked on. I loved it. I just had the grands on my mind. One girl and 6 boys I think. Sherece has always been as big as Corey and Ben who were older.
We have some wonderful GREAT GRANDS, but they belong to their Grandpas and Grandmas, I will not usurp their position. I want the boys to enjoy their grands.
I just had ‘em on my mind! We are hoping Ben can bring Elsie out (from Utah) for a visit this summer.
We even took some of their friends!
