Growing up as a child no one else in my family was quite like me. So I truly had no one I could relate to at times I still feel that way at times. So as an adult and a proud grandma things at our house can be different at times. See I found it came from my dad's side of the family whom I was never around. But amazingly my daughter and my grandchildren all are quite like me. I can say this with a smile. So, I am going to give you a little view what it is like at our house.
I am going to start with my daughter when she was about 2yrs old and realized she had inherited some of my traits. My daughter had beautiful long red hair fair skin and big blue blue eyes. And I had finished college and was working 2nd shift so her dad and her were at home while I worked. As a child she was the typed that had to be entertained she would not play alone at all. Her dad was watching tv is his comfy chair and tall glass of ice tea beside him. Our beautiful daughter came in got a drink of tea from her dad who asked her "What are you doing?" With big blue eyes and smile she says "I talking to the ghosts in my room." she skipped down the hall happily and went into her room. Where she remained for more than an hour which was quite odd for her. So dad got up and headed down the hallway and as he approached her room he heard more than one voice talking at the same time. He listened for a moment made out our daughters voice and at least two other people speaking as well. He later relayed this to me and I asked him well did you open the door and see who or what was going on. He said "Heck no no way I was going to open that door." I had to smile a little under my breath he had a few more instances he never got used to it. He tried to pretend it did not ever happen.
Next we have my oldest grandbaby looks so much like her mother when she was little. Around same age even as her mother. I had gone over to their house to visit and before my hand could touch the door knob I heard her running through the house "Mommy grandma is here! Mommy grandma is here!" She also could tell you when the phone was going to ring and if we knew the person who it was. Her dad experienced about the same experience as her grandpa had with her mother when she was her age.
Then we have grandbaby number two. She reminds me so much of my mom who she died when I was young. In fact she would grab any type of bag and make it her purse and put crayons inside it. She would pretend they were her cigarettes. That was so my mom she always had her purse and cigarettes with her. She would even say old sayings my mom used. We were in car going shopping and she looked over where a ditch on the side of the road was and said "There's a car and policeman and a lady in a pink car." We looked over and nothing was there. But on our way back home the road was blocked and traffic slow and as we passed we saw the pink car, the lady in it and the policeman. Me and my daughter just looked and in the back we heard "I told you mommy."
Grandbaby number three he is my little dynamo. A rough and tough little man all of 3yrs old. Me, his grandpa and him were walking up the road to meet his mom. As we got to the end of the road his grandpa plopped down on the ground to sit in shade and text our daughter to see where she was at. Our grandson nonchalantly pointed and said "Look grandpa there goes someone dead look." Grandpa looked up glad he did not see anything and said "Come on let's catch up with your grandma until your mom gets here." "Mommy here papaw look" as he turned here came his mom down the road in the van. If you are wondering who he saw it was a young friend of ours who had passed about a year before.
Yes there is a grandbaby number four. She is quite small and like the rest I do see signs of being like us. Things at our house can be quite different. I have put food in the microwave to cook and it stop and just be lazy and not get up and hear the microwave go beep beep beep and finish cooking on its own. My husband did not believe this until it happened to him. I feel I am very blessed and look forward to everyday with a smile.
