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 Outlawyer, "K", at the Real Toads, Weekend Mini-Challenge - Poeticizing Out
Her Challenge was, "write something inspired by a breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea, coffee, snack eaten out, at the local diner, café, restaurant, fast food joint, even, if you wish, camp site."
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.
