Parker, the middle great grandchild decided he wanted to spend the day with Pa and Gamma Grape.
We agreed and entered the wonderful world and imagination of at three year old for several hours.
Our toy box has none of the electronic bells and whistles, so it was not long until I was sitting in the arm chair with him as we drove to the store, inconveniently running out of gas and having a flat on our imaginary adventure. Things that have happened in his world.
Later, after a meal of hot dogs, mac and cheese and pickles, I turned on the computer to share Parker with some family far away.
In the toy box, he found a Spiderman figure, a large two piece Easter egg and some Lego’s. These items became a space ship. He and Pa had a serious discussion over where the ship would go – moon or Mars.
Finally he succumbed to a nap, snuggled on the couch with an afghan and stuffed toy. I might need one too!
