November 8, 2014 ~ Today I am thankful for Nugget, a.k.a., my “practice” grandchild. What started out as a homeschool Child Care elective class for my daughter when she was in high school, has since turned into a very special relationship.
A friend with a 3 month old baby needed ongoing childcare every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. Since my daughter didn’t drive yet, I stayed with her and used it as a “teaching time”. She learned hands on feeding, burping, diapering, etc. Needless to say we both fell in love at first sight … and the rest, as they say, is history 🙂
My daughter still takes care of her occasionally, but I now only get to see her at birthdays and holidays. I just love our little Nugget, she is growing into a beautiful little lady ~ on the inside (where it counts most), as well as, the outside ♥
