Aftermath of a Visit

Having grandkids visit is truly a pleasure and a privilege. Spending time one on one with a little boy can be really eye-opening. My youngest grandson – 4 years old- came to visit recently for a long weekend. He was thrilled to have Granny all to himself and just never stopped talking. I heard all about absolutely everything. From school, friends, family to TV shows, the tales never stopped. I loved having him but really enjoyed the peaceful evenings once he fell asleep.

My first evening after he returned home I enjoyed a relaxing chill time on the couch in front of the TV with a glass of red wine. After about half an hour or so I happened to glance up at the ceiling. Goodness knows what he had been trying to do but he never said a word to me. He just left this behind decorating my light for me.

My older grandson (8) had also visited me. He loves running around playing outside in the garden. The morning after he had left I took the dogs out for their early morning patrol. I was still half asleep when we went out and in the early morning half light got quite a fright to find this hiding in the garden.

Besides bringing pleasure to one’s life grandsons can also give more grey hairs to the head. Not that I would miss a single moment of my time with them. I have learned though, to check everywhere they have been very thoroughly, before I can relax to avoid any unpleasant shocks.
