My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

thoughts are the seeds, the harvest can either be flowers or weeds. — William

Grandparent Magic!

Today is Gator's 4th Birthday!!

originally posted at Extraordinary Mom's Network 12/8/08

Here we are, celebrating Thanksgiving with the grandparents.

Each kiddo has a small helping of meat, veggies, green bean casserole and crawfish dressing on their plate.

I keep trying to encourage the Gator-boy (age 3 1/2) to try his food. He'll eat all the meat but nothing else!

I point out that crawfish is meat....."NO!"

wanna try some off Momma's fork?...."NO!"

I'm gonna steal it if you don't eat it....mmmm, you wanna bite? ... "NO!"

OK, fine, I give up! eat the meat leave the rest, at least you're quiet and happy and not starting a food fight in Mimi's formal dining room.

Then I get caught up cutting meat for Sonshine......

That's when I hear it.



I turn around to see that Grandad is helping Gatorboy search for, find and EAT all the crawfish out of his dressing.

I may have to change my name.

Aww, that is so sweet! Now i miss my Grandparents from my Mom's side. Well, they're already on Heaven! I remember my Grandma and I always feel like following and listening to whatever she's got to say.

I don't think I could ever really eat a crayfish myself but that's probably just my New England tastebuds coming through.

You are totally right that grandparents are magic - mine were and I still miss them dearly.
