I like to share different quotes on Saturday and the one I am sharing today is from one of the children at the daycare center where I am working. I only worked there for two weeks and then I was off on Monday and Tuesday of this week. It was good to come back to children that remembered Miss Dianne.
There is one four year old boy that I see occasionally at daycare but he has always given me a hug. He asked me my name one day and I told him Miss Dianne. I saw him when I returned on Wednesday. As always, he was exceptionally happy to see me. He not only gave me a hug but when I sat down in a chair, he came and climbed on my lap. He gave me another big hug. I asked him, “Do you know my name.?” He stopped for a minute and gave it a long thought. I really thought he was going to admit that he did not know my name. However, after a long pause, he gave me a big smile and said my name was, “Grandma.”
As my grandson lives in another country and I never get to see him, I thought that was the ultimate compliment. That is also the name my grandson calls me. What a privilege it is to be called Grandma even if it is an adopted name.
