The Grandparents Are Here… Again!



My parents flew home last Tuesday. They arrived here again this Tuesday! This time they’re staying for the holidays; my aunt, too. What this means:

1) Josh and Zoë get oh so spoiled. The extra attention, the little treats… They’re just soaking it up.

2) We get these:

Flown in, nicely packed in dry ice. I’m not into ice cream much, but I could never resist mango and ube ice cream from the Philippines.

3) More people to play Uno with. More people to “congratulate” Zoë when she wins.

4) Magic tricks by KungKung to keep Josh guessing… and challenges from Josh to test KungKung’s magic skills.

5) A few more people with whom I can endlessly and unabashedly talk about Josh and Zoë –and know that they feel the same way I do.

6) We can do a good dimsum, because dimsum is more fun with more people, because you can order more!

7) I might do the Pottinger Peak Country Trail again. If I’m smart, I’ll go hiking with my mom tomorrow and start walking off all the additional calories I’d consumed since they’d arrived yesterday.

8) Additional people for Josh and Zoë to kiss and hug goodnight; more people to give them hugs and kisses back.

9) A full car when we go out.

10) A fun holiday with loud laughter (my mom’s!) shared with family and people we love.

How perfectly wonderful! This makes me smile big and so very happy for you, and Zoe and Josh. Such nice times and great memories for you all to make together. This is what family is all about. Blessings to all of you...your parents are very blessed to have a daughter such as you and grandchildren to spoil and love up such as Zoe and Josh. May your hearts overflow with all that you do each day...especially in the little things. :) Enjoy. XX Lori
