Yesterday was my mother's birthday and so in recognition of that fact we had ourselves a little chat all about Nonna...
Dominic, age 2 years: Dom can't really play this game but if I had to wager I would say that he loves Nonna because she always has an open supply of ice cream sandwiches and he pretty much will get one no matter what he does or doesn't eat at meal time. He would give her the gift of either not screaming through dinner or a hug, but never both. And he wants everyone to know that every time he gets in the van he asks if he's going to Nonna's house.

David, age 4 years: I love to give Nonna hugs and play with her. Play legos, you know, the water legos? She wants a new desk for her birthday. Wait, do they have a desk mom? Because she doesn't have one. I don't think so.... She wants a birthday cake and cupcakes to eat! I want to tell Nonna that I made a card for her and I love her!

Letty, age 6 years: I love Nonna because she hugs us. And I like her bedroom because it has those little jewelry things in the thing? She wants strawberry cake for her birthday. And we can't tell her about her gift but she wants a new shhhh mommy are you telling her? Okay. She wants a new box for her jewelry things. She wants to tell her Happy Birthday Nonna and uhm I hope you will like your gift!

Kids, right? They have not a clue. They have the very best grandmother in the world with their Nonna. She loves them so very much and is so supportive of them in every single way. I couldn't have dreamed up a better grandma if I tried. We hope you had the very best of birthdays Nonna!
