'be careful what you see, little child'

Don't know what has gotten me started today, but here goes. Maybe Freudian Slips post?

Look at this eye, my granddaughter, lovely lashes, and brown hue. I am amazed what children see and hear these days. I want to shield the eyes of my grandchildren from all the hypocrisy and evils of the world. I am not stupid enough to think there were not evils when I was a child, but it has become so pervasive. You can't even go to the mall without hearing objectionable language or seeing some folk with hardly anything on. Where has morality gone?
Not to mention TV and social events! Parents must keep in tune to what their children are seeing/doing!

This morning as I was polishing these little toe nails, I was truly amazed how much her hands and feet look like her moms. I was also reminded of my daughter saying NO you can't polish your toe nails and fingernails, so being the good granny I am, proceeded to polish them both! You can hardly see the polish! can ya! Little girls must be little girls. I can remember a time her mom had Black or purple nail polish! She came out alright!
It also made me think of the miles she will travel in her lifetime, the things she will do with these hands in the future. Hopefully she will honor God and her family with them!

I have learned through bitter experience the one supreme lesson: to conserve my anger, and as heat conserved is transmitted into energy, even so our anger controlled can be transmitted into a power...
- Mahatma Gandhi

Grandparents are special. They can break the rules and get away with it. I like to think that my own kids are on a sort of vacation from our strictest standards when they are with their grandparents. They can eat whatever Grandma lets them, and it's okay. There is a special relationship I wish for them... one that I never had.

What a wonderful post. Your grandchildren are fortunate to have you. Love the quote.

Grandchildren are certainly a joy. Our 9 year old didn't want to go grocery shopping with me this morning, so when I got back and was bringing in the groceries, she picked up her cat, carried him out and said to me, while holding the cat so the cat could see me, hello sugar momma. I thought I would split a side laughing.

She tells everyone that Grandma spoils her and I don't really. If I am fixing something I know she doesn't care for, I try to always have something as a back up for her to eat. I don't think her other Grandma does that, she either eats what is there, or she doesn't eat.

This post made me a bit misty, not sure why. I think it reminded me how much I miss my grandparents.

I think being a grandmother would be the best. I like the way you phrased it conserving anger. I think suppressed anger can often end up becoming a form of depression. When I heard that I stopped trying to pushing anger down because I think it can be very healthy if not misdirected or taken out on someone inappropriately. However, conserving anger makes sense to me. The difference may be subtle but there is a difference in conserving and repressing.

We do want to protect them don't we and we can't. All we can do is be there to help them up when they fall down...And paternal grandmother used to let us wear her rouge and lipstick even when Mom said we couldn't. My sister and I remember that to this day....
