Special Day -- a Challenge Poem

Grandparent's Day at School
Be sure not to miss, only comes one time 
wonderful occasion, Grandparent's Day   
Experience comes to selected few
Put on your Sunday best, style show of shows
Be on time, little early is better
Sign in with smiling front office people
They will check, background impeccable be
Line up outside library, wait your call
Ten, twenty minutes later child appears
She's full of smiles with a big hug for you
Follow me to the cafeteria
Mac and cheese special today, choclat milk
Papa a picture takes, tyke and Mimi
All smiles still until, loving words of care,
"Better eat your apple dear, can't waste food"
Comes by nature, grandmas can't help, BOSSY
Meanwhile at home, this little piggy stayed
Chicken and special renal food, healthy
And in the fridge desert for after school
Mimi, tyke and papa, Grandparent's Day

Today I am linked with 

Mrs. Jim and I did visit our grand-daughter, KP, at her kindergarten.  Lunch wasn't Mac and Cheese but I can't remember what it was.  Okay for adults but not all the kids were liking it.  KP liked her banana for sure.

The little piggy who stayed home was our Katrin.  She had liver and kidney problems and ate a special diet to help her.  I was nice to her and let her eat out of one of my special Texas Blue Bonnet soup bowls.

Katrin died in September last year.  May she RIP.

I love it that the dog crept into this poem and ate splendidly from a china plate!

Grandkids love their grands coming to eat with them. Well done. Love the little piggy that stayed home : )

Ha--well, except for Katrin dying. I am very sorry for that--but very cute rendition of grandparents' day--I am all for apple eating. (And probably bossy.) Thanks, Jim. k.

What a wonderful event. Grandparents and grandchildren are very special.

So sweet! Kept me smiling from beginning to end. We didn't have Grandparent's Day while I was in school--I'm a bit jealous!

Love this line: "Comes by nature, grandmas can't help, BOSSY" because it's true. ;-D

So sweet to be able to share a lunch like that.. just proves that the company is more important than the eating...

Yes, and I show up for all of them... even the games :-)
Well said.

Family dining...I don't have grandchildren. It makes me sad at times, but live doesn't always serve up your wish.
