A is for Adorable

Our Grandlittles live in Ireland now.
 
Yeah.
 
I am sooooo not talking about it.
 
They are far, far, far away.
 
Far.
 
Far.
 
FARRRRRRRRR.
 
Away.
 
That particular fact is soooo NOT adorable.
 
However.
 
This little story is.
 
I decided to make Mo, the youngest one, a nightgown.



She informed me on face-time recently that the last one I made her was getting small.
 
I told her it wasn't the nightgown getting small...it was her getting big.
 
GULP.
 
(did I mention they live far, far, far away now...sniff, sniff)
 
I told her I would make her a new nightgown.
 
I asked her Mom for measurements.
 
She started texting some my way.  Waist.   Belly.  Length.
 
Then I got a text that read:
 
3"
 
Hmmm.
 
"Three inches?"  I wondered to myself.
 
What could possibly measure 3"?
 
I sent a text back for clarification.
 
"Smile is 3 inches..." was the text reply from our daughter-in-law...
 
"When she thinks of you."
 
A three inch smile when she thinks of her Grandma?
 
Awwww.
 
Awwwww.
 
See?
 
I told you it was adorable.

Oh, that is so hard to have grandkids so far away - can't even imagine...

Jenny said...

Aaaahhhh. That is adorable. I know what it is to have grandkids far away. Every other day I think of going home then my depression sets in. Thank goodness for Skype. Austin, the baby, stills knows me and chews on the I-pad as I talk to him. He cries when his mother takes it away. Don't know if it is me he doesn't want to give up or his chew toy? Glad you're making a nightgown for your granddaughter. Make it flannel xo Jenny

Awww. I feel for you. I've had the grands live far, far away for 5 yrs and it was tough. They did look forward to parcels in the mail. It was before facetime or anything of that nature and that is how I stayed in touch.

Cristina Pop said...

This is indeed very adorable!

Sue said...

I bet those kids miss you like crazy. And I know you miss them at least that much…

It seems that you are feeling better if you are able to complain that your grandlittles are living so far, lol (3 inches !)

Busy Bee Suz said...

Hi Jenny,
Loved your story, and I am sure that lil one misses you very much, and
what a nice thing for her Mom to do to let you know.
Sorry you still have no answers,
still praying for that...........
hopefully soon hon,
blessings, Nellie

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Maybe a visit from those adorable children would be a good thing for an ailing grandma?

just sayin...

Cathy Kennedy said...

That grandlittle of yours is ADORABLE! Kids have a way of growing up on you when you aren't looking. Make her a cap and tell her to not take it off. Maybe, that will keep her small a little longer. At least that's what I wanted for mine. :D

fredamans said...

Very adorable. Sounds like she misses you just as much. (((hugs)))

Janie Junebug said...

That is so nice.

Love,
Janie

Melinda said...

Oh so cute!

Terra said...

Awww, that made your tender granma's heart smile too.

Brona Joy said...

That's a smile to be missed to be sure (said with an Irish brogue :-)
Thank goodness for skype, email and instant messaging to make the distance seem less.

Rose Clearfield said...

How sweet! Your story put a smile on my face. :)

Nadeen said...

That's the same 3" I get when checking in on FaceTime or coming up the escalator into baggage claim - grandgirls waiting with hugs and smiles. Nuthin' like it.

Annesphamily said...
