The Marine and his Sunshine have recently been transferred. It was so nice to have both grandbabies in the same city (even though it wasn’t my city) for the short time that they were. Luckily for me, they didn’t move too far. At the end of my Nana Mission in Phoenix, I took a few days and drove out to see him. Them, I went to see all of them. Really, what’s a six hour drive when we’re talking about the Lil Prince?
As much as I would have liked to spend three weeks with the Lil Prince, teaching him all kinds of cool stuff like I did with Baby K, I could see the Marine was doing a bang-up job of teaching his boy the fundamentals. Now, you may be thinking eating from a spoon, crawling, sharing and things like that. Remember, this boy has a Marine for a dad, so the fundamentals are a little different in this family.
I would wish for Sunshine to have a girl next, but it wouldn’t matter. A female Marine is still a Marine and follows all the same rules and credo. Sorry Sunshine, just stand your ground and remember that you outrank everyone.
