Today my three year old grandson climbed into my lap, laid his sweet smelling head on my shoulder and uttered these precious words to this smitten grandma…

”When I grow up, I’m going to carry you and take care of you.”    

Big sigh!  What is it about little boys that makes them so protective of their grandmas?  With  sweet, innocent love like that, how could you want for anything more?


  1. Sounds like you must be a wonderful grandmother for him to care about you that much!

  2. Oh what a sweetheart. My son is like that too...I hope he stays that way :)

  3. What music to your ears I am sure! Little boys are so precious. I love your header photo...yellow roses are my favorite. I need to plant some here at Lakeshore...any tips?

  4. Oh I love the word smitten...yes my little boy, age 5, keeps telling me he will take care of me, which might happen since I am 50!
    God is so good to allow us the joy of little ones.

  5. Oh what a charmer and it came from his little/big heart! Yes, I would be melting too! Precious! Aren't grandchildren the best!


    P.S. LOVE your pillows! Did you make them?

  6. How couldn't ask for anything more!
    Wishing you a lovely Sunday,

  7. Oh how very sweet! Smitten is a very good word to describe how grandchildren make you feel, especially when they come out with such precious sayings! Have a happy week ahead.

  8. Such sweet, sweet words. Someone is raising him well!
