Gramma, Ya-Ya Hit the Road
Child grateful for month-long visit, enjoyed all of the hide-and-seek, but refuses to take selfie
How lucky we have all been to have Kina’s Ya-Ya and Gramma1 around for the last month, as we collectively awaited the arrival of little Otis. While the new cousin has consumed his proper share of familial attention, Kina had a wonderful time, for her part, too:
Christmas Eve dinner at Gramma and Ya-Ya’s hotel/house
Countless games of hide and seek
A extensive exploration of the knock-knock joke form
Gramma’s skillful manner of getting Kina to answer questions about school
Throwing toy airplanes on the playground
The smiles of her doting grandparents, who now have all of Kina and a new baby to absorb
Lucky them. Lucky us.
Today’s Parade is a giant jellyfish floating under a clear blue sky full of birds. The whole family is there with the jellyfish, and that jellyfish is reminding you that vaccines are YES and coronavirus is NO.
I discovered during this trip that I have been spelling both their grandparent names “incorrectly” for the entire life of this newspaper. The Standards Department offers its most sincere apologies.
