Aleck’s school had a Grandparents and Grand Friends Day at school. Unfortunately, our family lives too far away but Aleck asked Joni to come as his special friend. Thank you, Joni, for being such a Grand Friend! The morning started with the children singing several songs. I sat on the floor and joined in with the song, Five Little Speckled Frogs, and Aleck thought that was awesome. Later, Joni helped Aleck make a special card that he later gave her. They decorated a yummy cupcake to look like a turkey. I know it was yummy, because I ate the whole thing later that day. Bad Mommy, bad Mommy!
We went to chapel and I was so proud to see how respectful and well behaved Aleck was. A few times, Aleck looked up at me with his head tilted sideways and a smile on his face. Those brief glances conveyed total love and adoration. My sweet Aleck, I hope you always look at Mommy that way.
