We have a ritual for that!

We really do have a lot of rituals that we go through with Amara. I’ve told you about when I leave her house and head home to Grampy, she always has to send him home hugskisspoketicklespiderbites. And when her parents drop her off at our house, well we have a ritual for that, too.

Since Grampy and I both grew up in the 60s, one of the first things that we taught Amara was “Peace”. When Mommy and Daddy would drop her off, the 3 of us would go outside and wave goodbye and wave Peace. Of course back then Amara’s speech wasn’t great and peace often came out as peas. As her speech improved peace/peas became a new and fun game.

“Peas!”    “Corn!”    “Cauliflower!”    “Ice Cream!”

“Ice cream?” “Ice cream isn’t a vegetable!”

Grandma Kc, Amara and Grandpa Richard giving the peace sign.

To which Amara will throw her head back and laugh. Then we all start laughing. Amara loves it when she can do things that sets the 3 of us all of laughing. Between the water wars, the Christmas carols, the art exhibits on the driveway — we must really keep the neighbors entertained!

      I just want to be around to watch her maintain these rituals with her own kids. What fun would that be — being Great Grandmas?
