“If you’re not doing anything constructive, go in the living room and get my stogie…”
My Mother kept a box full of craft items for us. This has passed to my Grand daughter who says her kids love it. The oldest great grandson will even ask to get it out on sunny days.
It’s times like these I wish I had listened to what my mother said. (What’s that?) I don’t know, I wasn’t listening.
“She doesn’t say anything, she’s departed…”
A dad joke!
It’s just as well, what she said to do back then, you wouldn’t be interested in doing now. It didn’t have a reset button.
I always thought my children weren’t listening to me but years later I hear them giving their own children some of the advice I gave them.
It’s summer; unless there’s a thunder storm or hail, there’s no reason why the kids can’t put on their swim wear and play in the rain!
