To help out my daughter, since she’s gone back to work, my husband and I each watch baby Thea one day a week. That way she only needs to spend minimal time in day care.
Well, this is a blessing for me, of course, as I get to bond with my only grandchild, and I’ve learned a few things from that little one in the process.
Oh, and the handsome and distinguished looking Lab is Max.
- A smile can win over the world (well, Grandma’s heart anyway)
- Licking lips and making smacking noises always gets attention.
- When someone kisses your cheeks and play-nibbles your neck – enjoy it
- Eye contact brightens the other person’s day.
- A long, relaxing nap can really change a cranky attitude.
- Drama gets you everywhere
- Bath time is both functional and fun
- If something excites you kick your feet and flap your arms so the other person will know.
- If someone sings to you, act fascinated.
- If a person makes silly faces for you, indulge them and laugh, because you’re special and they want your attention.
- You fill in this blank.
Share what you’re learned from being around children, babies or grandbabies.
