Since starting school, A has become very enthusiastic about going out and playing (as in more than usual). This evening, he went and was out playing with neighbourhood kids. As kids do, he fell down and scraped his knees. 😦 My parents were immediately all over him, doting him and asking me to take care of him. For all that it was a simple scrape…nothing great!

I was amazed to see my mother saying all this. She was always very caring when I fell down ..did all the necessary rituals 🙂 but I remember it was always so matter of fact. Like, well kids will be kids, they will fall down get hurt types. Here I was seeing my parents go ga-ga over A.

Guess when it comes to grandchildren…things are different 😉
