Yesterday I had lunch with my granddaughters at Red Lobster, their favorite restaurant. They wished me a happy Grandparents’ Day; I didn’t know there was such a thing. We ordered so much food! Jackie said we were making up for lost time, since we hadn’t been able to see each other for 4-5 weeks. I was not able to see them after I got thrown out of their house because of the crazy dog-bite/quarantine incident. And I hadn’t seen them for over a week prior since they were on the cruise.
It was so nice to hear them tell me their impressions of high school. They certainly like high school better than middle school. Middle school is truly hell on earth. They love being on the Silverbelles, the Pep Squad. They performed for the first time Saturday night at the football game. They really take their commitment to the Silverbelles seriously. They were very critical of the girls who chatted and didn’t pay attention during the game, and those who didn’t stand properly on the field while they were waiting to begin. They really take their positions on the squad seriously.
I stayed at the house for a while when I took them home. (Sabrina and Clint were still out eating somewhere; they wouldn’t tell the girls where when they asked–odd.) So we talked about the music they like. Jackie “discovered” Arrowsmith, and Cassie likes Motown because she can make up little dances to songs like “Mr. Postman” and “Dancin’ in the Street.” So funny how they like “the Oldies.” Cassie’s dances were really cute. And rocker Jackie played me her favorite Arrowsmith songs. It was a great visit.
I had missed them so much. Being with them always cheers me. It was a fabulous Grandparents’ Day.
They want to earn money, so I told them that they can help me for pay around my apartment: taking out the trash, maybe vacuuming, etc. They were happy about that. Apparently they no longer get an allowance, and Clint and Sabrina both “borrow” money from them! So they say. Odd.
Anyway, I am one happy Nana. 🙂
