I mentioned to Granddaughter1 that I found these cranes to be rather beautiful and elegant.
She gave me a funny look. 'Why?' she asked.
I don't know why but they fascinate me.
Normally she is very perceptive. I had three grandchildren in the car. GrandDaughter2 and GrandSon1 were in the back.
'Stop tormenting your sister!'
And a few minutes later, 'Leave her alone! Remember only good children will be getting ice cream.'
GrandDaughter1 in the front sighed. 'Don't say that. You know he will get ice cream. Mummy and Daddy always say that too and they never do it.'
It's true. I have always been an advocate of the 'don't threaten something if you're not willing to carry it out,' method of discipline yet I seem to have lost my way where the grandchildren are involved. Grannies aren't meant to tell off, that's the thing; grannies are meant to spoil.
Aw, well, here are Younger Son's kittens.
