The simplest toy

Our first grandchild, Grady, figured out how to work this toy right away. I snapped his photo on my lap in September, 2013

“The simplest toy, one which even the youngest child can operate, is called a grandparent.” Sam Levenson

There are colorful toys, singing toys, funny toys, educational toys, old-fashioned toys, and toys that wear out quickly.  Grandparents are all of the above.  Every child should have at least one or two – hopefully more!  If your child doesn’t have any, don’t fret – as with all well-loved toys, you can borrow someone else’s.

Today I wish you many happy thoughts of your grandparents, grandchildren, or both!

I have no idea why, nor do I know how they choose the related posts. That’s just the way WordPress does things.
