GOOD GOLLY, MISS MOLLY ~ YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL




"Grampa, she's just what I've always wanted ~ a baby sister!"
Peter was ecstatic ~ a really proud and happy boy.

Earlier, he was staying with his grampa, as normal on a Thursday. His Mum was in hospital with his dad for the arrival of little Molly. His dad telephoned and asked to speak with Peter, breaking the good news to him first, and then to me. His face lit up with excitement and together we beamed when we saw the first picture:


He saw me smiling with pleasure and promptly said in a very protective way, "Do not laugh at her, Grampa, that is my sister!"

Today we had a family gathering and Molly met her Auntie and Uncle and cousin Rosa, who was most interested in her.


Together she and Peter gave Molly a little cuddle and a kiss:



Molly's hair is very dark but this is nothing to go by because Rosa's too was equally dark before turning blond. Peter's was slightly ginger.

Well, eventually I got a turn and it was extremely therapeutic.


I am a very proud grandfather and consider myself very blessed to have three adorable grandchildren. Maria would have loved them to bits.

There is rather an amusing story about Peter when I used to walk him to playschool on a Friday. He said he wanted a little brother AND a sister and often approached young mothers and looked in their prams and strollers remarking that he wanted one of those. The amused mothers invariably said, laughing, "Well you had better ask your mummy and daddy, to which Peter always replied, "I have but mummy said there is not one on order!"

Thank you to my children and their spouses for producing such wonderful grandchildren ~ I am so happy.

  3. Beautiful. I am quite envious, Eddie. Beautiful photos. My grandchildren live a million miles away and the three great grandchild will most likely never be seen.

    1. Thank you Betsy. There is a lot of love in the family for which I am eternally grateful. Yes, young Peter comes up with some very amusing stories. Those same young ladies invariably were treated to an alternative facts of life scenario, worked out by non other than Peter himself. As soon as he said, "There is not one on order!", he refused to be denied a baby brother AND sister by continuing, "But if one was on order, I think I would like a little sister first because they will have plenty of time later for a little brother. If the baby comes out of Mummys tummy it will be a little girl, if it comes out of Daddy's tummy it will be a little boy." The young ladies and I were in fits and they usually remarked that I had a very bright grandson. . . . :)
