Ok, I goofed big time. I forgot about Grandparents Day this year. Believe me, it wasn’t intentional. We had a lot of birthdays this past month and it got lost in the shuffle. Grandparents Day normally is not a “big deal” in the family, but for me, it has risen in importance ever since 4 years ago.
I did fess up to Grandma, and after the usual “Focus!” and “Concentrate!” litanies, she told me that Grandparents Day is anyday that I bring over something for her. Whew!
Most days, when I visit her I feel like I’m batting .300 and that’s a good day. It helps to know she’s still there for me despite myself.
