My Grandpa is my Mummy!




After church on Sundays, Maya generally comes home with us and we spend the afternoon doing crafts, playing games, and really just having fun with her. We love it although it does preclude afternoon naps. Our theory is this: there will come a time soon enough (probably way too soon for us!) when she won't want to spend Sunday afternoons with the old folk. So we enjoy every second and figure we can nap later. When we're really old!

Anyhow, I digress. This Sunday, I was in the kitchen and heard some pretty dramatic screams coming from our bedroom. Looking up, I was amazed to see a mummy growling and chasing Maya. She was hollering and running -- and loving every second. (you know, 'stop it some more, Grandpa!').

How silly is a man who will wrap himself in Ace bandages, become a mummy and harrass his grandaughter? Pretty silly, I think. What a good Grandpa! Fun times.

That is so sweet! Isn't it amazing to see what a man turns into when he's a grandpa? I sure wish my parents took my children on Sunday!

I think that it is so cool that you get to do that with Maya! Not off the subjet, I really do love that bedspread! That is the peachy color that I kept trying to get my client to switch to. I love it very much. And if you ever want to know where to find somethings that color, I know now. I have seen all the peach shades in Austin!
