Since my shoulder surgery in September, my grandson (six years old) has been much quieter around me. He was no longer interested in rough-housing and other physical activities. He would just refuse when I tried to get him going.

After some thought, I asked my daughter and she confirmed she had talked to my grandson about being careful around Grampy because of my shoulder. A short while ago, I asked her to have another talk telling him I was OK to get physical as my shoulder was a lot better.

I pick him up from school a couple of times a week. A while ago, he started opening the car door and buckling himself into his car seat with no help from me. I had been trying to get him to do it for some time with no luck. I told him I thought it was great that he had learned to do that for himself.

I picked up Steven from school Wednesday and he buckled himself in again. I repeated my appreciation and asked if he did this for Mom and Dad. He said he did not. I asked why he did it for me and not them. He replied, 'I do it because it makes you happy'.

We came home and during the afternoon, he made it clear he wanted to rough-house. He wore me out and I got a lot of laughter in return.

When it was time for him to go home, I bent over and hugged and kissed him. He told me I had to pick him up to hug and kiss him. So I did.

That was yet another thing he was holding back on out of consideration for my "condition". He never slipped up and said a word.

I couldn't be prouder!
