My first great-grandchild, now 5 months old (pics)

Her mommy is my eldest granddaughter.







In about two weeks Mr. froggy and I are going to meet our little great-granddaughter for the very first time! We’re very excited.

3. Thank you, Peggy. It's

not every baby who can fly! She is obviously very smart. She's kind of a messy eater, though.

6. Thanks, Rhiannon. We

think she's beautiful too. She looks almost exactly like her mommy did at that age. It's amazing!

12. (drowning in cute) I don't have grandkids yet, but the kids are of breeding age.

 

We've been hanging on to a lot of old toys so there will be something "different" when they come visit.

13. Good idea. We always did

that too, especially the big metal Tonka trucks. Our granddaughters liked those as much as our grandsons did. Maybe our great-granddaughter will too.

19. I've still got a lot of my own childhood toys, including a Noah's ark my grandparents made.

 

Grandpa built the ark (with wheels) and Grandma made all of the stuffed animals. It was a present for my late brother. My kids played with it and it's still around.

21. That's wonderful. We don't have

any toys made by beloved family members. My husband's first Tonka truck is still with us, though, which is good.

The ark and the animals must have been very well made to have withstood years of play. What a nice family treasure.

22. They were definitely well made. I learned a lot about woodworking and sewing from my elders.

 

Actually, I learned a lot about car repair from my other Grandfather and quite a bit about cooking from my other Grandmother. She did cook nearly everything in leftover animal grease, but I adapted the techniques well when we went vegetarian over 20 years ago. I have a lot of tools from both grandfathers, most of them over 40 years old.

23. You're fortunate to have had

grandparents who passed their skills on to you. My husband learned carpentry from his father, who'd learned it from his father. It seems Mr. froggy can also repair anything that needs fixing. He passed his skills on to our kids. Our daughter diagnosed the problem with her then-father-in-law's farm tractor one year and fixed it, much to that family's astonishment. She told them, "My dad has always done a lot of mechanical work, and I've paid attention."

24. I've tried to do the same with my daughters. They're involved in a lot of repairs.

 

That includes basic "handyman" type stuff like fixing a toilet flush valve or a broken door frame and changing lights on the cars and checking the fluid levels. They're also all quite proficient at building and lighting a fire in our pit, cooking, and know more about gardening than many seasoned veterans of the art. We started them from the earliest appropriate days. That's how humans and many other species have survived and advanced over the years and they're not going to get that stuff from a television or video games.

25. That's great. We've always

tried to do the same with our kids. They learned more from their dad than from me, but that's okay. I learned a lot from him too.

You're right about TV and video games. Our kids liked them and still do, but they also know how to make, grow and fix things.
