I know all grandmothers think this about their grandchildren . . except mine probably didn’t think it about me but Addie is such an easy girl. That should change any day as she gets closer to her teen years.
This morning I went to wake her. It was after 9 and Vince and I were about to have breakfast. Chad was always such a grumpy bear when I woke him, no matter what time it was. I had walked into Addie’s room and was picking up some things on the floor and she sat up in bed and said “BOO!” with a big grin. I asked her if she wanted to get up and have breakfast with us and she said “Sure!” , grabbed her clothes, got dressed, brushed her teeth and was in the kitchen asking me if she could get spoons and forks for our breakfast.
When we were in Walmart the other day I found these shorts – Nicole calls them “legging shorts”. They were two pair for $3. Walmart quality but they should last her through the summer. They had these cute shirts for $4. They were regular $5.50 and I got her two of those. Walmart wasn’t around when I was a kid but I would probably have squawked at buying my clothes there. Addie’s always happy with whatever I get her, whether it’s from Goodwill or Walmart. In fact, because she never has the shoes we need, Vince bought those tennis shoes at Aldi and she loves those.
I doubt she stays so happy and easy to please but I can hope. And, when she isn’t, her parents can do all her shopping.
