Weekend With My Granddaughter

Here’s part of a conversation I had with my granddaughter over the weekend.
Paw Paw:  Chloe, what is your favorite thing at Mommy’s?
Chloe:  My favorite thing at Mommy’s is Mommy.
I actually thought we were talking about food.  By the way, Mommy, if you are reading this, Chloe’s favorite meal at your house is Salisbury steak.  The conversation was part of a totally delightful weekend.  Chloe jumped into my bed in the wee hours of Saturday morning after her Dad dropped her off on his way to work.  We stayed in bed for a little bit while she got warm.  Saturday morning was kind of cool.  We then went downstairs and made cinnamon toast and bacon.  When breakfast was ready we turned on the Disney channel.  Later in the day we went to Caufield’s Novelty Shop in downtown Louisville.  It is the best place to go if you need any Halloween stuff.  We also made a trip to the Comfy Cow for some awesome ice cream.  The day was capped off with dinner at the Cracker Barrel.  I love to spend time with my granddaughter.  She gives me a lot of joy and she helps me forget myself and all my imaginary troubles.  After her Mom or Dad picks her up I am always a little depressed and the house seems very empty.  I love watching her grow up but I also wish she would stay just the way she is now forever.
