Grandpa Tries too Hard

Yesterday I went to see my son, daughter-in-law and the little queen of dreams, my grand daughter. My son fixed me and his wife dinner for my birthday. Cordelia woke up after a nap and wasn't in the mood to play with grandpa.

The harder I tried the more she fused. Her sixth tooth trying to break through didn't help matters.
She finally let me pick her up to take her outside to her swing set. I pushed in her swing for a while till it was time for me to go. She waved at me and said the word "bye".

My heart melted as I drove off.

Little people are fickle that way. They have no currency, so they barter with toothless grins and make you earn their love by playing hard to get. This makes each and every sloppy kiss and every hug a priceless treasure. Completely worth it - Nards
