Have you ever had a moment or moments in your life where everyone around you just looks at you like you've lost your mind? REALLY...NEVER...Well, it's a common occurrence around here...take for instance the fact that we have two grown children who are both married to wonderful spouses...and the fact that I want more than anything to become a grandmother while I'm still young enough to enjoy them!! Now please know that I am wise enough to know in due time...in due time...BUT...this does not keep me from "dreaming"! Yes...folks I dream of a sweet little granddaugher or grandson to cuddle, snuggle and basically just smother to pieces with love and affection. I also dream of the name my grandchild will call me...YES...You've guessed it...this is where the crazy part and disconcerting looks come into play. I have long asked to be called "Lolly"...why...Lolly you ask? Well, for two very strong and sound reasons...well...three...now that I think of it! First...it's just so darn cute and the kids called their grandmothers "granny" that was their name and it is just not me! Secondly...because of this...yes...this cute sweet little doll...this is a doll my darling daughter had when she was growing up and this doll went everywhere with her from the time she could walk till she moved on to bigger and better things...like tricycles, big wheels and Barbies (I have this doll packed away for the future..wink, wink)...The doll is named "Lolly" and man oh man...you should have heard how cute the words "Lolly doll" were when my precious daughter spoke them... and Thirdly...sweet lovin'hubbin' likes the name..."Pop" because of his grandfather...so...me being the kooky crazy gal that I am...thought "Lolly" and "Pop" were the perfect names for us! They just seem to fit us to a "t"...so to speak! Can't you just see it now...a cute curly haired little girl asking her mom and dad if she can go see "Lolly-Pop"...or a tow headed little boy asking if Lolly-Pop is taking him to the rodeo??? Don't think for a minute it would be beneath me to bribe them (my future grandchildren) with lollie-pops...you know just to con them into calling me that...my candy drawer will be brimming with all kinds of healthy...lol...non-sugary lollie-pops...ok...that's just a lie...I'm going to fill that drawer with the best lollie-pops I can find...sugar or no-sugar...it's my grandchild for heavens sake.
Yea...I've got it all figured out in my head...sigh...it's just no one is cooperating with me... darn kids! The good news is I do have 2 grand dogs...and my sweet son-in-law is already calling me Lolly in front of their dog...so I think it will become habit for him (my son-in-law...not the dog, she doesn't speak, yet)...therefore...I'm sure its a shoe-in for the future gran-chillins! Doncha think???
So-ooooo What do you want to be called? Or what do your grandchildren call you? I'm eager to know...I just may have to steal it... ummm...I mean pass it on to someone else to use!!
disclaimer...to my sweet darlin dauthter and daughter-in-law who I know check my blog from time to time...this is in no way a ploy to put pressure on either of you...I want to be a "Lolly" whenever you are ready...I just ran across the "Lolly" doll the other day...and it had me thinking. Of course if you guys want to oblige...I don't have a problem with that either... LYF
