Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to indroduce my grandpa to my littlest, John. Grandpa was driving through Tennessee on his way home from Georgia to Michigan after visiting with some of his friends. I couldn’t bring Nathan, sadly. He was having what I call an “off day,” where he can’t handle the sensory overloads of being out in public. The bustling activity, noise, lights, etc send him into a sensory jam where his brain just can’t process anything more, and it leads to meltdowns and misbehavior (although it’s a neurological problem, not a behavior problem.)
So at any rate, I met my Grandpa and my parents at a Mexican restaurant and he got to meet his youngest great grandson!! It was so nice to have dinner with them and catch up on things. I hope that next time, Nathan can come too. Grandpa hasn’t seen him since he was 2 1/2.
I have such a great family. My immediate family and my extended family. I am truly blessed to be a part of it!
