Cheryl, your post made me smile, we are birthday buddies! Aren't grandkids the best? I had a FaceTime conversation with my 2 & 4 year old granddaughters yesterday, the 4 year old kept saying happy dirt day Nana! Cracked me up..... :).

I love the way children learn. I love watching them figure out things like holidays and birthdays, and seeing them start to understand why they are celebrations. I'm glad you got lots of birthday hugs.

Thank you, Princess.

Somebunny...."happy dirt day"! That is so funny, I just love the vocabulary of little ones. Makes me smile every time.

Thank you, PAG - yes, you can almost see the moment when they realize it! Precious as can be.

There is ten years between baby #4 and #5. So I had the time to really enjoy Poo's baby and childhood. I used to hide around the corner and watch him play. It gave me many smiles. All his Playskool toys made noises. His weeble people talked back to him. His trucks would whiz around the room making great sounds and climb hills right up the front of the couch and over the arm and back down to the floor. Both he and his toys went on great adventures. The bottom cabinet of the TV was the garage for his vehicles. That is where he parked them every night before bath time.

But Sunday was my favorite day. Sesame Street started at six a.m. and was on until six p.m. You weren't going to get him down for a nap. He fell sound asleep right there on the floor right in the middle of all his toys. And if I tried to change the station, he woke right up. To this day I still smile when I think about his baby and childhood

When tinlizzie and I met for brunch on Tuesday she brought me a beautiful, sweetly-smelling rose from her garden. I've enjoyed having it on our table this week and will pass it along to the ladies in the office when we leave Friday morning. Just looking at this beautiful rose from my beautiful new friend made me smile every day. Thanks tinlizzie!

Aw shucks, Cooking Goddess. It was my pleasure to meet you and chew the fat together for a bit. I'm glad we weren't under a bad-weather threat. Maybe you're our lucky charm.

Take care on that long trip home.

Our grandson had a kids only birthday party at some game site last weekend. I picked him up from school Tuesday afternoon and took him shopping for a gift.

When we got back here, I brought out a chocolate covered chocolate cake with a candle in it and we sang Happy Birthday. He had a healthy piece with vanilla ice cream. While he was eating it he kept proclaiming, "Who makes the best cakes ever? Grampy does!"

Made my day!
