Splintered fragments from my day.
RRRing. Answering phone. Hello. Want the girls today? Sure send them over.
Running with hugs. Using water bottle to squirt water. Chasing yellow butterfly.
Enters house. Soaking feet. Painting toenails. Turned over nail polish. Cotton swab and polish remover. Giving dolly a bath in the foot washer. “Can I have sweet tea?”
“Grandma, hold hands with Jesus when we pray.” Eating sliced turkey, cheese, and crackers. Song on kindle. Just give me Jesus. “Can I have sweet tea?”
Ashlyn to the computer. Grandma and Jadalyn to table with Rummikub. “Can I have sweet tea? “Can I have a cookie?”
“Jadalyn, can you pull that loose paper off the little bathroom wall?” Find sack to hold paper. Prop Jadalyn so she won’t fall. Dirty stuff on top of the cabinet. Washed off. Out for garage sale. “Can I help you?” Two girls on sink. One girl on toilet seat. Toilet springs leak. Grab towel.
Jadalyn, I need to practice my speech for the speech contest in the morning. Jadie, keep time for me. Sammy, you going to listen to me practice? When I finish my coffee. Here’s the timer. How long was it? Six minutes and eleven seconds. Oh, good. Has to shorter than 7min 30sec.
Computer and Rummicub. Grandma won. Grandma won. Jadalyn won. Let’s color. What color did you use? That’s pretty. Can I color with you? I’m about to stop, my back hurts. OK. We’ll color some more. That’s pretty. Your is pretty, too. Grandma, you have hairs right here. Can I have some sweet tea?
Frozen chicken strips and crinkle potatoes cooked for supper (dinner). “Do I have to eat this?” “Want some pudding?” Let’s play the line game. OK. I’ll make line for Ashlyn, Ashlyn for Jadalyn, Jadalyn for Grandma. What’s this? A girl on a recliner. What’s this? A dog’s head.
Are you ready to go? Get your stuff so you’ll be ready. Don’t forget your hair bows this time. “Grandma, Nana is here.” Okay, baby. I love you. I love you Sweetheart. I love you. I love you. It was a special day. I love you. I love you.
