Most of us will have experienced the ubiquitous quotations that somehow manage to go viral around Facebook and emails? Mother, Father, Son, Daughter, Grandson, Granddaughter etc. I instinctively want to share those and like the post but something nearly always prevents me from doing so. I suspect there is something in me that says “don’t follow the crowd” or perhaps I’m just a shy private person at heart? (I can hear some of you laughing …..). However, today, I’m publishing the fact that grandchildren are indeed wonderful! So what has brought on this sudden emotional outburst?
I have 4 grandsons, 2 each from my son and daughter, aided and abetted by my daughter-in-law and son-in-law respectively! I never tire of seeing them although I will admit to a sigh of relief sometimes when we ‘hand them back’ 🙂
The youngest Charlie is just over 3 years old and he is a real handful…..but funny with it. Thomas is just over 6 and a bit of a comic. He appears to be very interested in wildlife. It amazes me that he is able to identify and pronounce the names of many insects and “mini-beasts”. However, they would appear to be easy compared to the types of dinosaurs he used to rattle off a couple of years ago!
Sam aged 9 never ceases to amaze me with his forthright views but you can often pick up his soft side just by listening carefully to him. Ben almost 12 is the oldest and is really into football (and I mean 24/7!). He is goalkeeper for the U12 AFC Bournemouth Academy (English Premier League team). Well done Ben, your hard work has paid off 🙂
thank you for reading.
