No more Bella spoiling. But his present arrived today: a box of wooden refrigerator magnets, 52 of them, a full set of capital and lower case letters in bright red, yellow, green and blue. Isabella was enchanted and stood there in full coat and hat, forgetting that she was ready to go outside. (That’s a big deal!)
One funny granddad story:
The other day my dad took Bella to the elementary school playground a few blocks from our house during school hours. After they’d been there for a while, a teacher came out and said she was bringing out her class, implying they’d have to leave. Poor Bella screamed and screamed all the way home. She was sobbing so hard that even after I’d nursed her to sleep (she was also way overdue for a nap) she was still breathing those little gasping breaths. Poor granddad.
I’ll try to post some of the adorable pictures he took of her soon.
