The other day I made each of my grandchildren one giant and I mean GIANT heart shaped pancake larger than the plates could even hold! It was an epic breakfast time.
You know it was the kind of pancake that required a bottle of syrup, a full can of whipped cream, sprinkles and all the fixin’s that just make grandmas breakfast ever so special!
I served those precious children with such glory and turned to the get extra napkins- just anticipating the mess, when I overheard my granddaughter say to her brother: “I bet grandma can’t make a bigger pancake than this.”
And I immediately thought to myself how truly brilliant they are- knowing how to play me, because as grandparents there isn’t anything we wouldn’t do- right?
Then in a flash, I walked over to the stove and made 6 more pancakes- each one grew larger and larger than the one before!
As I placed the mound of pancakes in front of these adoring grandkids, I felt a strong surge of warmth come over my heart as moments such as these are forever etched in our grandparenting experience. And, hopefully memories such as these will resonate with the grandkids as they grow as well.
GRANDparenting…. You just can’t beat it!
