Little Buddha, we are done with another week, and almost done with the alphabet.
Part of me is glad, as that means we can move on to other, more exciting possibilities…
Part of me is sad, as this means it’s almost over, and Gramma hates goodbyes, even if it’s just of the meme variety.
BUT. Let’s kick this pony, shall we?
Y – is for Yawn. Big and open, yawning mouths seem to abound around you when you are sleepy, Little Buddha! There’s this thing, you see… called “Baby Coma”, which, when held, a little one will induce a strong need for sleep in the person holding on. You are such a warm, soft, comforting little bundle while you sleep, it’s hard to put you down in your bassinet, instead of just having you curl up on someone’s chest, right over the heartbeat, and nap together…. yaaaaaawn…. sleepy now…
Y – is for Yummy! I want you to have a wide palate of what you like to eat, Little Buddha, so we’re going to have to work on your choices of food. There are 4 basic food groups we’ll focus on…. Salt, grease, carbonation… and chocolate.
No, seriously, I do want you to be able to eat more than just chicken nuggets and toast (don’t talk to your Uncle, OnlySon, he doesn’t know what’s good for him!). Your Mama’s got a pretty good range of foods she likes, so she’ll help you out with the “healthy” stuff… but Gramma is going to help you pick the bestest of the bestest of the so-called junk foods.
Hey, one person’s junk is another person’s treasure, right?
So… as soon as you are old enough to nom down the solid stuff… we’ll get started – with strawberries and chocolate.
Hey, I know strawberries are considered healthy because they’re fruit… but we can make them so that the possible gains are outweighed by the sweetness and yumminess of the dessert!
Y – is for Young. You are this right now, Little Buddha, and will be for some time to come. This is ok. You don’t have to grow up too fast. Take it easy.
I mean it.
The older you get, the older Gramma gets.
Now, come here and give Gramma a kiss and a hug.
