Two out of three aint bad. Two out of three grannies, that is.
Nell and Dell came to our house for a visit. Sam always likes when Granny Nell comes over, but this visit was extra special because it had been a long time since he'd seen Dell. The only thing that would've made it better is if Bell had been here, too. We called her on the phone, but it wasn't quite the same.
The four of us played for a long time, went out for lunch and ice cream, then came back and played some more. Sam and Dell played The Stinky Sock Game for the first time, a game that Daddy played with Dell many years ago. She gave him lots of coins, all of which Sam calls "pennies", and even some dollars for his piggy bank. They played with stickers and built a pillow house. It was a busy afternoon!
Once Sam realized Nell and Dell were thinking about leaving, he really turned on the charm and asked Dell sweetly if she would like to "go play in my room". So the two of them played and read books by themselves while Granny and I chatted.
He wasn't too happy when they left, but did tell me how much fun he had. For the remainder of the day, he would look at me every once in a while and say: "The grannies are the same!" Yes, Sam, they kind of are!
