Him..."Annie?" Me..."yes sir". Him..."I love you!" Me..."I love you to!"
Seldom to never has he wanted to sit in my lap and watch a show. Occasionally he will sit beside me to read a book. However, he is NOT a lap sitter....until last Monday.
His parents had been gone for several days and he had been staying with his other grandmother and I. Monday morning was a Pajama Christmas birthday party for Jesus at his school, so he wore his pjs to HH. I picked him up and when he got home to my house that afternoon he just left them on. Usually on the days I pick him up from school I do not have him take a nap. This day was no different. We were busy watching all his Christmas DVDs (you know the ones, Charlie Brown, Frosty the Snow Man, etc., Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer). At some point he crawled up in my lap and laid in a reclining position to watch. We initially did this.
Then he curled up sideways and watched...in my lap while I wrapped my arms around him.
It was just so sweet. I've always wanted to just sit and hold him and snuggle. It was a special treat for me to cuddle up with my all boy grandboy! It will be a Christmas memory I will not forget (especially since we did watch Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer three times).
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.
Love the Lord our god and serve him with all your heart and with all your soul...fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deut 11:13-19
Encourage One Another, continuing the journey on fresh paths.
Blessings and love to you, xoxoxo and Merry Christmas.
