Honestly, Little Buddha, when I started this alphabet for you, it was going to be more joking and a little less serious than it actually has ended up. But, I guess there really is a serious side to yer ole grinning Gramma, little one. On with it, shall we?
X – is for Xylophone. Yes, you will have one of these, and yes
– your Mama and Daddy will hate it. It is, however, a rite of passage for every child to have at least 1 super-annoying noisy toy that Mama and Daddy aren’t allowed to get rid of. You need to learn about music, and what better way than to be able to bang out a tune on small strips of metal with a wooden stick and ball?
I can’t help but wonder, though, if you wouldn’t do better to have something a little more… complete – shall we say?
Maybe something along the lines of …..this?
We do want to make sure you can get to ALL of the notes, after all… right??
I thought so.
X – is for Xanax.
After a long day of musical experimentation, I’m sure your Mama will be most likely wishing for one of these. You don’t need to worry, however, Little Buddha. Your music will be beautiful, and Mama can wear cotton balls in her ears if it gets just a little too “enthusiastic”.
X – is for “X Marks the spot”.
I think Gramma’s going to put a big X in her front yard – so you always know where the spot is that you can find me.
Gramma would never want you to get lost on your way to her house, so here you go!
This is the spot where you don’t have to worry if someone’s going to be mad if you’re a little late getting there – I’ll be glad to see you anytime.
This is the spot where you will always have a warm hug, a smile, and a willing ear to listen to all your troubles, or a shoulder to cry on.
This is the spot – where you can escape the whole wide world if you need to. Gramma will make you a safe place to rest, to talk, and to regain what you need to get back out there.
Gramma’s here for you, Little Buddha. Always.
