|My grandniece is six days old.|
Each time we are gifted by a new baby in our family, I think of Mom and how much she would have enjoyed this one, too.
I remember her saying the same thing about Grandpa Emil; Everett was a couple years old when Grandpa died, but was at an age where Grandpa would have found him particularly entertaining.
When Everett was but a babe I rented a lakefront cabin for a summer week and Grandpa drove out in his little truck to visit one morning.
I was gently washing Everett's face with a wet cloth and he was squealing loudly, as they do.
Grandpa: "Nobody likes getting their face washed like that."
Me, after rinsing the cloth in warm water, washing Grandpa's face with it:
"What's not to like?"
Grandpa, surprised: "I guess you're right!"
