If You Need a Laugh, Read On...

The family joke is that "no grandchild will get hurt on Ducca's watch."
After today, I have an addendum to that maxim.
"No grandchild will get cold on Ducca's watch."
Caleb is spending the day at Nana and Ducca's house today.
When I arrived home from my Bible study at about 11:00, I found Caleb all bundled up in some of Ducca's sweats. It seems that they wanted to go for a wagon ride and Caleb didn't have any warm clothes with him, so Ducca improvised.

When my children were little, I don't think I appreciated quite so much the whispered naptime questions. Here is a small sampling of Caleb's questions/comments as he was trying to fall asleep. Please imagine each one in a very quiet whisper.

"What was that noise?"
"Why are you good?"
"I'm thirsty."
"What color is your hair?"
"Was that noise Ducca?"
"It's morning. It's light."
"You're funny Nana."
"I can't see anything."
"I need my other blanket."
"I'm thirsty."
"I love you Nana."

What fun times!

Can I borrow those if I want to go outside when I visit?

What a cutie that little boy is! I can definitely understand why you had to follow him to Colorado. :-)

I think those sweats fit just perfectly! What a precious memory that will be.

Well, I think a new fashion statement has just been made. Great job, Ducca!
