Lunch with Mom and My Granddaughter
May 27, 2016 6:47pm CST
Went to visit my Mom today and brought my 13 month old granddaughter with me. I stopped at McDonald's and picked up 2 iced coffees and a small fry. Then drove up the street to KFC thinking I would by chicken for lunch. When I looked at the cost of an 8 piece bucket my eyes almost bled. So we went to Burger King and picked up chicken sandwiches and a 10 pc chicken nugget. Mom was in a good mood. She was quite talkative and tried her hardest to get my little princess to sit on her lap. Well my granddaughter clung to me like a vine. Mom kept asking what my granddaughter's name was and who her parents were. She kept saying "this really made my day!" It was clear that she enjoyed lunch and our time together. A few of the residents came out to the deck about a half hour later. My granddaughter buried her head in my shoulder. She didn't like to be around all of those strangers who were ooohing and awwwing over her. Mom announced proudly that she was her great-granddaughter. We stayed for another half hour and it was clear that both my Mom and my granddaughter were getting tired. So I gathered up our stuff, blew a kiss to my Mom (couldn't get close to her with all the ladies sitting close to her) and told her we would do it again soon. It was a nice visit with Mom. Always great to see her smile. She told my brother of our visit and said she had a great time. That made my day.

When I looked at the prices and was trying to decide if I really wanted to get chicken that was obviously breaded in gold, my granddaughter started fussing. I used that as an excuse not to order. LOL. I didn't tell Mom that I had stopped at KFC and didn't order any chicken. She loves KFC. I can live without it.

It was indeed lovely. I have waited for the weather to change so we could enjoy lunch on the deck again. My friend also lived in the same home and I would bring lunch for the 3 of us. She passed away earlier this month.
