#JusJoJan for 1/9/18 ~ Coffee

My parents had a pot of coffee going around the clock.  I have no idea how they slept drinking all that caffeine.  I do not remember when they cut back but eventually they went to brewing just one pot a day in the mornings.  Neither added cream or sugar, that was a luxury.

I would drop my Pony boy off with them most weekday mornings as I headed into work.  I was blessed to have them available to watch my child.  I know not everyone is as lucky.  Not once did I take that for granted.  My boy was a very lucky little guy … to have grandparents who thought he hung the moon.  I will never forget those mornings and the cups of coffee. I miss them both dearly.  I will always remember what they did for me. Makes me sad that Lulu was too little to know them in the same way the Pony did.

  1. Thanks for writing to the ‘coffee’ prompt! I think I started drinking coffee pretty young, like when I was in jr. high? Every morning first thing, coffee at the kitchen table with my parents, just getting awake slowly for the day. I’m glad you have wonderful memories, too.

  2. Aw! How wonderful that they were able to give you the support when they could! I totally get your appreciation, as I have fantastic in-laws, who do so much for me with childcare. If they weren’t around, I’d be stuck, and out of pocket, finding childcare, and when we are with my parents, they are wonderful too, taking the kids off my hands so I can actually relax!
    Sounds like I foist my children upon others, and don;t do anything my self, but honestly, that’s not the case! I do everything for them, but where I have to work too, something’s gotta give!

    1. I agree with you completely. I think it is beneficial for children to have a relationship with their grandparents aside from the parents in the middle. I know that is not always possible for everyone (and some do not want that) but I say to each his/her own. When we married we made a decision to stay close to home just for that purpose so one day our kids could see their grandparents regularly. It makes me sad that my youngest missed out on that as they both passed away when she was very young.

      1. At least you did what you could. My children even met their great grand ma… I only knew my maternal grandma so I really feel the importance of children being able to spend quality time with their grandparents. ❤
