Why Leave Grandma?
I knew the day would come when I was asked the question.
Not yet four years old my Grand Daughter asked the question; Why leave Grandma?
I did not use the words "divorce" or "ex-wife" in my answer.
"Your Grandma Jackie and I still love each other but my love of art became too much for her and her love of pets became too much for me. So we parted friends. I am so happy I married your Grandma Jackie because she gave me my sons, your Uncle Mark and your daddy. Then the greatest joys of my life came when you were born and seven weeks later your cousin Denver."
She smiles and leans forward to give me a kiss on my right cheek and goes back to playing with her dolls.
