A Very Knitted Catepillar
Dear Boy is an incredibly lucky boy with an abundance of Grandmas and Great Grandmas.
He has a traditional white-haired one who gives bosomy cuddles and sends birthday cards with five or ten dollars; he has one who skypes with us and who he 'talks' to whenever he picks up an object and pretends it's a telephone; he has one who will get down on the floor with him and play until he's through; and he has one who is crafty. Far more crafty than me.*
On her last visit she came bearing a set of knitted fruit and food and creatures from The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which is one of Dear Boy's favourite books.
Dear Boy is obsessed with the ice cream cone. He hasn't quite grasped the concept of "pretend" eating yet.
Do you or your kids enjoy the benefits of Grandmas (whether they are of the traditional or non-traditional variety, or not really technically Grandmas at all)?
* He has two more who are technically (great) Grandmothers but neither probably consider themselves that, so we generally don't consider them at all. He has a handful of (great) Great Aunts who more than make up for them, though.
