Utter Sadness

How can one simple act –

Both gladden

And sadden

My heart?


I told my grandson we had to leave

And immediately he dropped his little head

To his little chest

In utter sadness.

    This is really a dichotomy of emotions, Colleen! One that is inexplicable but universal. You love the way the boy loves you, as I love the way my grandies get disappointed when they have to leave me, (usually they are fine with my leaving them when I visit, surprisingly!) It is like when you leave your kids at the babysitter’s, you are so relieved they want to go there. . . but if they cry, you secretly feel happy. I did sometimes, but this is so funny. When I stayed at home to babysit, I secretly envied the mothers who would briskly walk out the door, since they were off to ‘the outside world!’
    Parenting was a joy but there is unlimited, overflowing joy in grandparenting, don’t you think, Colleen?

    • I’m chuckling reading the depth of your response. Robin I absolutely adore your ability to respond so eloquently to people! (I see your responses to others!) How do you do it? I know you work a demanding full time job!!! At the end of the day sometimes I can barely say “great post!” and look what you do!!!!!! You amaze me. For honest to goodness real! Every thing you say is so true and SO very much a part of our parenting and grandparenting. And I fully agree with you, the grandparenting love is a tidal wave of such joy. It knocks me for a loop. I think with becoming parents we expect it, we KNOW we will love our babies. We grandbabies…..it’s so…..daggone amazing.
