In the meantime, life goes on. My grandtoy was born last Wednesday. And what is a "grandtoy", you ask? Well, a grandtoy is what you get when your deceased best friend/husband's cousin's oldest daughter has her 1st child:
Meet little Ms. Rebecca, Becca for short. Technically she is my cousin. In my heart, she is something of a granddaughter, but I don't want to step on any toes by officially claiming that title. I am good with being whatever she wants, so long as I get to be in her life. Hence "grandtoy", a beautiful and loveable baby girl for me to spoil!
Just for fun (and because I am a photo hoarder who has collected all the family photos I can get my hands on) here is one of Grandma Becky with her mommy in 1971:
And here is Becky and Ashley (Becca's mommy) in 1990:
And so we come full circle:
Becky would be so proud! :)
|Forever and ever my friend.|
