As a young child growing up, we heard and even witnessed it ourselves that grandpa wouldn't for any reason carry a child not up to 6months old; there were even some that would have to be 12months(1year) old before grandpa will touch. All he does will be to wave at them from distance and shout "HOW ARE YOU". I have questioned him on this severally and the reason has been that he is not always comfortable touching them because he sees the as too fragile; most especially, he considers them to be egg which needs extraordinary care to handle. Despite the reason/excuse given, his love for his children and grandchildren knows no bounds, or better put, are immeasurable and unfathomable.
However, he broke the principle last week Tuesday; 4th December, and carried Princess Amiable just a day after she clocked 3months. Hence, on behalf of Iyinlana, we are saying thank you to grandpa for bending his principle to break the jinx for her#Iyinlana#Daddy'sGirl#Mummy'sBaby#Grandma'sJoy#Grandpa'sFriend. @lizb_clothing
Happy Birthday to my hero, the best grandpa a girl could ever ask for! I cannot express in words how blessed I am to have to you as a grandpa.. whenever I’m sad, lost, confused, or anything.. coming to you always grounds me and makes me feel safe! Thank you for helping mold me into the woman I am today, for being the most consistent man in my life, for loving me unconditionally no matter how much crazy stuff I’ve done, and for showing me what real love looks like!!! I could go on and on with how amazing you are and it would never be enough!! Thank you for being you, I am a better person everyday because of you! I love you most! 💚 #grandpa#birthday#loveyou#myheart
Today on the way home from school, randomly, out of seemingly nowhere:
Tiny human: "I want everyone I don't love to go away"
Me: "Why is that?: .
Tiny human: "Because then I would just have the people I love here. I want all the people I love to be here with me. I miss Bumpy John. I'm really sad he died." .
Me: (choking back tears) "I miss him, too. I feel sad, too"
Tiny human: "I will always feel sad and miss Bumpy John. I'm really having sad feelings (tears)
Me: (tears streaming) "Me too, me too, and everyone else who loved him". .
I think John is super present right now. I think she feels him. It's almost the 2 year date of when he died. Needless to say I've been a ball of mush and tears all night. I miss him. Cancer sucks. Death sucks.
