a tale of tails, tenacity, and tedium, as told by me, usually barefoot and bellowing

Cousins

Fourteen and seven did home work together.  Jakes adds one plus one plus one and plays at word problems while Andrew offers to tell Jake about protons and electrons.

They begin dicussing the heat of chili peppers versus the Jalapenos.

Jake has finished his reading assignment.  I brag on his reading, while helping him sound his words. Andrew says, Nana, you would make a great kindergarten teacher...NEVER in your wildest dreams, Andrew! 

I could never be a teacher but I can be a grandmother, hoping the little things I do make a difference, maybe help my grandsons through our interactions.

As Andrew continues writing his definitions, Jake sits ON the table, admiring his older cousin.

Once again the conversation returns to the heat of peppers.

You're a great nana. It's really nice that you record these sweet tidbits of your life together.
