A cute tale of a grandma and her grand daughter.

This is a story, one of my cousins told me.

It is not even a story. More like an anecdote or a reminiscence. 

She said:

My grand daughter came running to me one day.

“Grandma, draw a dog,” she said. I drew one.

“It looks like a monster.” She laughed.

“OK, then, tell me a story, about a bad boy and a good girl.” She asked.

I blinked and said, ” Darling, I am not good at telling stories. Can I read one for you from a book?”

“No grandma, your voice is very soft. I can’t hear you well. Then bake me some cookies.” she said.

“Shall I bake a cake instead. ”

“No. I wan’t only cookies.”

Something hit me hard on my head.

I can’t draw. I can’t read well. I cant tell stories and I can’t bake cookies.

Absolutely no credentials to be a good grand mother.

Then I did what I should have done long ago. Headed to art class, tailoring class and baking class.

At the age of fifty, I learnt crochet, fabric painting, tailoring, doll making and also baking.

The things we do for the people we love!

Yesterday, I heard my grand daughter whisper to her friend who had come over to play with her, “my grandma stitches skirts, makes hair bands, purses and she can also bake cookies.”

I don’t need any other testimonial than this.

I gave myself 100/100.

Very good grand-ma!

    I think I will be one of this type of grandma who will require the demands of a cute grandchild to hone up and learn new skills… Till then I shall enjoy the work of others!!!
