Reality Check

When you’re dancing with your three-year old granddaughter and she suddenly stops, looks at you with a serious, concerned look on her face and says, “I think you should sit down now grandpa.”


I think she wanted the stage all for herself. At least that’s what I told myself. The fact that I might be embarrassing her didn’t enter my mind. I didn’t ask. Didn’t want to know the answer. You know, the whole ignorance and bliss thing. I chose that route.

    Hubs has a degenerative neurological disorder, and has trouble walking and keeping his balance (his cane is his constant companion.) Dancing with our granddaughter is something, sadly, he will never be able to do. Be very grateful for the dance you had before she decide to steal the spotlight from you (I’m liking that explanation too!!)

    Over this summer I had the joy of being needed to take care of my now ten month old grandson. My daughter was returning to work, but he couldn’t get into to daycare for a few days, so I happily volunteered to watch him! And happily volunteered to watch him when he became sick a few days after starting daycare (it happens to all kids). At the time he was 8 months old. It was such sheer joy to have those days with him, but oh my! I forgot how much one little 8 month old can wear you out! Can’t wait to dance with him. Hope you will give me some dance step hints. 🙂
