Grandchildren, Rose and Playing in the Park

01 Oct

1. Playing ‘Row, row, row your boat’ with our 18month old Granddaughter. Watching ‘ Winnie the Pooh’ with our Grandson who is, “Not three! Three and three quarters, Granny!”

2. Beautiful rose in a garden on the way to the park.

3. Playing in the park with both children, Pooh sticks and Gruffalo hunting, having ice creams and hot chocolate – exhausting but fun!

    From one granny to another, that sounds like an exhausting, super day!

    Question: did the pictured rose have a scent? I’ve found that my home grown roses smell just awesome compared to ones I’ve smelled at the store. Most of them don’t have a scent at all. This rose is a gorgeous color! So delicate!

      The rose smelt gorgeous! Delicate and sweet, like roses used to smell when I was a child and with whose petals we used to make perfume! πŸ™‚

    Those times are so precious. Do make the most of them while they’re little – once they start school they get so busy, there’s less and less time to spend with them…I’d love to have mine back as littlies….

      We already have our time limited by Nursery school and school holidays! And are taking advantage of every time we can see them, us being in Cornwall and them in London. πŸ™‚

    I confess, I had to google Gruffalo hunting. And now I know.

      Glad I’ve contributed to your knowledge! You should read The Gruffalo if you can, it’s a lovely story for little people. πŸ™‚

    at my age, I insist on fractions too — no rounding off to the next year until I have to–just the opposite of little ones who want to grow up
    -the rose is perfect in pink

      I agree! I don’t want any rounding up either! πŸ™‚

    That 3/4 of a year makes all of the difference when you’ve been around for less than a decade. I remember my kids insisting on the fractions, too. Cute.

    ‘Row row row your boat’! I was mentioning that at work only recently & no one had heard of it! I’m glad it’s still out there because it SO had me giggle as a little one.

    And I KNOW what it’s like to be 3 3/4 – NOT 3, 3&3/4 πŸ™‚
