Do you see this precious beautiful face. That's the face of my adorable, granddaughter, Kylie. I just love her and her brother to bits. She and Donivan are the light of my life. They keep me laughing with all their shennanigans.
Here's a couple of examples, picture this then you decide.
Just last week my 8 year granddaughter asks:
Kylie: Mama can I use one of your cake pans to make my Barbie a hot tub?
Me: Sure, use the round ones, the sides are higher.
Kylie gets the pan out then goes to the sink and proceeds to fill it with cold water. Carefully takes it to the dining table then puts my blue fuzzy scarf around it and looks back at me.
Me: raised eyebrows trying to hold back laughter.
Kylie: What? Barbie needs privacy.
Me: (laughing) I don't know why you're worried about her privacy when you filled her tub with cold water, she's going to freeze her butt off.
Kylie: (without missing a beat and with a straight face) She's plastic Mama, leave the comedy for your books.
This is also the kid who, less that two months after her baby brother was born and began stealing her attention, made me laugh so hard I cried.
Kylie's mom, Amber, was on the couch watching television with me. Donivan (2 months old) had been asleep but woke up crying with a dirty diaper and hungry, so his mom sat on the floor ready to change his diaper. Kylie tried to crawl into her lap, wanting attention.
Amber: Kylie move, Mommy has to change Donivan.
Kylie scootches closer.
Amber: Move honey, Mommy needs to change your brother, he stinks.
Kylie: Moves sits on the floor and starts to pout.
Kylie tries again to climb on her mommy's lap.
Amber: Kylie, come on, let me get done.
Kylie: Flings her head back against the couch, covers her eyes as only a 2-year-old can do and cries, "He's ruining my life!"
Amber and I looked at each other and started laughing...I ended up with tears running down my cheeks
I believe true happiness is the ability to laugh at anything. With these kids, I feel like life is about to get a whole lot funnier?
Thanks for letting me share the rantings of an amused Grandmother.
I hope y'all have a great day!
