JP is my three-year-old grandson. He and his mom and dad and their English bulldog live with us while their new house is being built. One of the best things about having them here is spending time talking with him. It makes me hopeful for the next generation. He is so wise and so much fun!
JP: Nana, want to do puzzles with me?
Me: Sure, let’s sit at the table.
(He proceeds to put his 36-piece Jungle Book puzzle together with really no help from me. Proud nana moment here.)
Me: Wow, that was a great job!
JP: I love you, Nana.
Me: I love you, too, bugs.
JP: You are the best nana in the whole world. (Hugging me.)
Me: And you are the best grandson.
JP: Nana, I’m petting your hair like a dog.
