Mom told me Grandma was coming today, so I watched for her by the window.Hurry, Mom! Help me get my coat on!Okay, Grandma, we’re outta here!Let’s see…what’s on the menu today?Okay, I know what I want, so let’s get on with ordering!Oh goodie, here comes the waiter!Man, is he tall! I suppose he’s too old, too. I wonder if he’ll flirt with me…Yes, I’d like a Sicilian pizza, peach lemonade, and red velvet cake with ice cream.Hey, who ordered these grapes as the appetizer?Actually, they’re ….they’re…they’re my very favorite. Mom’s so smart.Oolala. Peach lemonade is really…well…interesting…Hey, waiter, hurry up, will ya? I’m half starved!Now, that’s more like it!Hmmm. That pizza’s great, but it sure makes me thirsty.Wonder if I could figure out a way to get a drink on my own…Oh, nuts! It rolled out of my reach.Thanks, Grandma! Hey, Ma, can I try again? I know I’ve never done it before, butthere’s a first time for everything! Ha, it wasn’t half as hard as I thought! 🙂Nobody look. I want a second helping of those grapes. They’re the bomb.Of course, pizza isn’t too bad, either.Napkins—on the other hand—leave much to be desired.Okay, did I eat enough to qualify for a little dessert?What do you mean you’re too full? I want cake with Häagen-Dazs ice cream!Okay, let’s compromise.Anything for you, Mommy!How about if we share a piece?I’ll even share with Grandma too, just to make her feel good.How about a little swing by the park?I am such a brave little pink-eared bunny, don’t you think?See my new teeth?But I’m getting sooo cold! Maybe we should go home and I can show you some more tricks. I’ve learned to climb to a stand by Mommy. Aren’t I clever? And I have a new dolly. Would you like to play dolls with me?I can clap my hands and laugh! I love my new roll and rocking chair.And, guess what, Grandma? I’m right on the verge of walking!Three cheers for a big day of entertaining Grandma!
“”Lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul…and teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up…that your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children…” (Deuteronomy 11:18-21)
