A shot of BFF love, with a humble chaser...

I feel a little used.

And a little hurt.

Our youngest Grandlittle told me on Monday I was her BFF.


She told me twice in the car.

And once when we got home.

She was soooo sweet sitting there with her Rapunzel book. "Gwamma, Can you read this to me? You are my BFF!"


I told her I loved her and read it to her...three times...


When it got to be close to the time for her to go home, I gave her a giant hug and told her I had a happy day with her. I told her that's what BFF's do...have happy days together.

She looked at me.

"Weee...llll," she said in her chirpy little voice, "You are my BFF, but Isaac is also my BFF."

"Who's Isaac?" I inquired sulkily.

"You know, that boy at soccer practice...he might be my BFF. Well...and... if Cinderalla came to visit me, she would be my BFF!"

"Hey? What about me? I thought I was your BFF!" I pouted.

"Gwamma, don't be silly. Of COURSE, you are my BFF...hmmm... but what if I meet an imaginary elf...maybe the imaginary elf would be my BFF."

I'm not going to lie here. Being replaced by an possible imaginary elf really hurt my feelings.

Sniff.

Sniff.

Darn.

I guess that's what happens when you have a BFF that's four years old.

So...

Maybe you'd like to be BFF's, instead!


Yeah, that would be all kinds of cool.

We can be BFF's for a long, long time...or at least until I meet an imaginary elf.

Sigh...

I don't think anyone can compete with an imaginary elf but, if it were possible you could do it.

Deb said...

well imaginary elfs always trump Grandma's....right....well you will always be her Grandma...a stinkin elf can't take that away....

Jeanie said...

That little cutie would be smart to stick with you as her BFF. I'll bet the boy at soccer practice or even an imaginary will read Rapunzel to her three times.

ImagiMeri said...

Awwwwww crapadoodles......I thought you and I were BFF's!!!!! Now I see that your head is turned by little blond munchkins that are way too adorable to resist. I can't compete with that.

Alas, I shall always think of you as my BFF dearest Jenny.........

BIG SIGH

Is it my imagination or does this grandlittle look a lot like you? She is so cute.

I will be one of your BFF's until you meet an imaginary elf.

Don't you just love what they say?? Not too long ago, my little 2-year-old grandson looked up at me when we were watching a movie and said "I wuv you Gama". He's been saying it a while, but always in response to me saying it to him. This came all on his own, out of the blue. I wanted to freeze that moment so I could play it over and over again. They really are the best aren't they?

Dana @ Bungalow'56 said...

She will some day realize that you are the real deal in the BFF department! Grandmas rock. I'm looking forward to trying on those slippers one day. I bet you are the best Granny Jenny!

Nezzy said...

What a blast and a half it would be to be your BFF, that is unless your gonna drop me like a hot potato as soon as Cinderella or an imaginary Elf arrives on the scene!!! Heeehehe!!!

Your little curly topped princess is totally precious!!! I'd sit and read Rapunzel to her all day! :o)

God bless and have a wonderful day my friend!!! Or is that BFF...I'm confused....

Donnie said...

I'll be your BFF...lol...especially when my 4 year old granddaughter starts saying Grandpa instead of Grandma!

Pondside said...

I just know that you'd be a loyal and true BFF, Jennie....but an imaginary elf is pretty hard to top!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

We can be BFF's...well until my 'grandlittle' wants to be my BFF! She is just too cute!

Theresa said...

BFFs, me and you:) Or until either one of us finds another BFF! It's OK to have more than one! HUGS!

Judie said...

Friends may come, and friends may go, but in the long run, you'll always be her BFF!! You Know that!

Ames said...

Oh gwamma, my #4 thinks I don't love him anymore because I made him stand in the corner yesterday after he hit #1. He wouldn't give me a hug before I left. That hurt too! We have to grow thick skins and love em regardless. I will be your BBF.~Ames

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Awwwwwwwwwww, those cute 4 year olds can be fickle, can't they? Especially when it comes to a boy at soccer or an imaginary Elf. -pout-

But yes MY DEAR, I will be your BFF!!!

Mmmmm, do we each have to carry one of those tiny, designer dogs in a bag, if we are BFF? Isn't that what those Hollywood BFF's do?

But oh! I'm kinda' allergic to dogs. Could I carry a stuffed animal [designer of course!] in my matching bag, please?

Geeeeeeeeeeee, who ever knew this being BFF, was so complicated, hu?

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

The cutest little BFF ever ♥

Ms. A said...

I think my littlest grand still thinks I'm ok... the others are outgrowing me. Sure makes me sad.

Willoughby said...

I was going to say that I would be your BFF, but I see you've already got quite a few. I'm going to go pout, now, unless you think it's possible to have more than one BFF. Do you? I hope so!

Love the grandlittle! She's adorable!

Becky said...

Awww, That is entirely too cute. I think I might like an imaginary elf as a BFF, too. LOL.

Kat said...

Oh Jenny, you always start my day with a smile. I love this, your grandie is adorable. I'll always be your BFF! Tell your grandlittle that those imaginary elves can be a lot of trouble, always playing tricks on people and blaming their BFF's! Hugs, Kat

Joanne Lendaro said...

love, love, love the kid stories!! They are so adorable, and don't worry about the elves, Cinderella or Isaac...you WILL always deep down be her BFF and more!! Thanks for the smile!!

Amy said...

Wow, replaced by Isaac, Cinderella, and an imaginary elf. You got burned.

Anyway, I thought you were my BFF and here you go two timing me with the lovely grandlittle. Of course, I can't say that i blame you, she is darling.

La said...

Ahh...the joys of being BFF with a four year old. :o)
