My grandad was Grandad to every little kid in the world -- or in our world. He so loved babies --- especially his great-grands! The journaling: I have never, nor will
I ever know anyone who loved babies more than Grandad Homer. If there was a new baby in the family, niece, nephew, or for that matter, a neighbor's new child, we'd always know where we could find him. I heard Mother complain for years about how,when she'd just get me down for a nap, Grandad would show up and tell her it wouldn't hurt if he woke me for just a little bit. I thought she had no sense humor or fun. Then, years later, when I had children of my own, Grandad would show up just as I was putting them down for naps and ..... and nope I still never understood her. I thought it was so neat how much he enjoyed little ones, I wasn't about to spoil it for him -- and of course the kids always hoped Grandad would arrive just as I was putting them in bed.
