Grandpa’s Sidekick

10 Mar

I love being with my grandson, Luke. I love wrestling with him, reading to him, taking him for walks, and working in the yard, you name it. And he likes it too.

I was washing my car this week and Luke wanted to join in. But you know what happens when toddlers join in. Just cleaned and rinsed areas receive another soapy sponge bath. Clean tires get a dirt bath. You get the picture.

Anne took the pictures of Luke helping me and shortly thereafter, found his “Grandpa’s Sidekick” t-shirt. Talk about making a grandfather proud!

    He is getting so big! I can certainly see how much he looks like Laura. Keep having fun with your “helper”.

      Hi Jan. Thanks for joining us on our new blog. It’s nice having you visit.

      ‘Lil Luke IS getting big and such a joy to be around. Anne just said though, that “he’s beginning to exert some independence.” Oh, the terrible two’s are on their way!

      Tell Larry we said hello for us please. We miss you guys.

      And he’s a great helper. In fact, he also helps put Brandy’s food in her bowl and fill the bird seeder. He helps Anne with mopping the floor. With all of these though, we use the word “help” a little loosely.

    You and Steve are so alike in that you both love your little buddies. Lila is already wanting to mimik whatever Grandpa is doing, typing keyboards on computers, pushing buttons on remote controls.
    I saw his cute little lawnmowers. We plan on getting Lila one since her grandpa loves to work on the yard and enjoys gardening. She will be out there right with him. We just wish we had as much time with her like you guys do with Luke.
    Keep the pictures coming!
    Love you guys!

      Thanks for your comments, Janie. I can easily see how Steve would be a good grandpa. He’s a good man, good husband, great guy. It flows naturally.
      I can’t wait to see you guys again. How can we make it happen?
