Grandpa, you’re just an old fuddy-duddy! – (Lauren, age 4)

Last week my two granddaughters were here for a visit. Grandkids are why we let our own children live, I think! The greatest title and job in the entire world is that of GRANDPA! (sorry ladies).

The younger, Lauren (age 4) wanted me to play Barbie with her. Now, Lauren is very insistent that some toys are boy toys and some are girl toys. So I asked her if grandpa, being a boy and all, should play with Barbies.

“Grandpa, you’re just an old fuddy-duddy, ” Lauren exclaimed.

“Lauren, what’s a fuddy-duddy?” I asked.

“I dunno”

“Then why did you call me a fuddy-duddy?”

“’cause grandma said you are.”

Well, I can’t argue with that!

So, I played with Barbies. But I got to be a prince!

Life is good, especially with the blessing of grandkids!

Shalom, Art

    Lauren is now seven. Grandpa is still a ‘fuddy-duddy.”

    And, Eli, our great grand baby at 22 months, having heard the exlamation burst forth from my wife Audreys’ mouth; “Goodness- Gratious!’ has been delighted with it enough to say it to everyone he can. Now if we can just tie it together with He (God) who is that.! Well, lets just let him (Eli) just test the concept before we introduce him to the author….. all in it’s own time.

    Art, grandpas and great grandpas are as young as they think. What a charm that they can leave a heritage of love with their grandchildren and great grandchildren when these no long fear you but feel they can come close to you. Thank God for grandpas and great grandpas. I had a grandpa who left an indelible mark on my life as I followed him in his profession with God’s blessings.
