I look after my young gs aged 4 each weekday and overnight on a Wednesday.
Tomorrow is his first day at Primary School, he is so excited. 16 months ago my beloved dh died suddenly, gs and him had an amazing relationship. Dgs believes grandad is the man in the moon, and tells the moon exactly what he has done through the day.
Tonight, whilst eating his tea he suddenly turned to me and said, "Nannie what did grandad sound like, I can't remember his voice?" I asked him if he wanted to watch a dvd with grandad on to remind him, he said "yes please". We watched a dvd of a holiday dh and I went on about 10 years ago, he heard grandad laugh, talk, play crazy golf, and kiss me, he loved every minute of it.
when it ended he said "that's better I can hear him now, and I will remember it, and I am going to tell you a secret, you must not tell anyone, but I know grandad is going to watch me when I am at big school, but I really wish he was still here, I love him and I miss him so much!"
Well, how I didn't cry I don't know, anyway he is bathed and in bed asleep and I am sitting here blubbing. Just had to share.
