While in Houston a few weeks ago, I shopped Toys R Us where one of the things I purchased was
a box of Legos for $10USD. Matilda and Sebastian have had well over $10 of fun with them.
It's one of their favorite things to play with when they come to Grammy's house!
Sebastian loves to follow his sister's lead. She made a tower so he was determined to make one taller!
He's now 3 1/2!
But.........after Sebastian went downstairs to snuggle up on Grammy's bed to watch cartoons, Matilda with great determination, made a tower taller then she is. I LOVE the smile on her face of triumph and success.
Her imagination is something to observe. Sebastian's as well. Matilda found some post it notes which with imagination became "tickets" to go to all kinds of events such as the circus, out to eat, Swan Lake ballet, the movies, and to play video games. Then she "pretend played" that I bought tickets for each of these events. I had to sign the tickets. Then I had to list all my children's names. After that it was my grandchildren. Of course it was pretend writing too. Then, at one point, she asked me my phone number. Then on to more tickets. About 10 minutes later she recited my phone number. Needless to say, I was astounded.
This precious girl has always astounded me. From learning sign language as a small baby to learning to speak and all that she does in school now, I'm amazed at her level of grasping and remembering information.
One of the greatest parts of being a grandparent is having the time to sit back and watch those small creatures grow into the most amazing, kind, loving and intelligent human beings.
I feel so blessed to have SEVEN of them to love and watch - from 22 to 3 1/2!
