I am blessed to have my 91 year old grandmother still with us, and only about 30 minutes away.
A few weeks ago I took my five year old over to her house, for a little visit.
We looked at my old sewing machine from when I was 4.
Explored the buttons and fabric scraps in the sewing room. My grandma is making a quilt skirt for my daughter, so they talked about quilting and chose a few more fabric pieces and where they should go.
Looked at photo albums from when I was little and generally had a great time. Then we took my grandma out to lunch.
I love being able to share her with my daughter, and seeing the two of them together was more fun than I could have imagined.
Sometimes babies and little kids have gotten in the way, it's been on my never-ending "to do" list for a few years, and finally I just did it. There is really no excuse for why it's taken so long for me to have this one-on-one, we see her often, but in a larger family setting.
Next time I'm bringing my son, and we can walk across the street and feed the ducks, a bit more "three year old boy".
Any extra special people in your life? How do you make sure to have special time with them?
