Unconditional love...even for klutzy grandmas!


Shopping in a store one day, I was looking for a very special gift.
My granddaughter was going to turn two, my little pride and joy.
I didn't know what to get, the toy store was so huge, but then I saw it.

The cutest little teddy bear, talking and laughing and when you
squeezed it, lights came on.  I looked around for something more
But no; this little bear was the perfect one.

I took it home, and looked for a box to put it in.  I looked
everywhere, but couldn't find one, so I knew what must be done.
I'd have to wrap it the way it was.

What's wrong with that you my say.  But when Grandma wraps
anything other than a square box, pretty things look rather sad
and beautiful they're not.

I cut the paper, nope, way too much, trimmed it, now not enough.
I added more paper to cover it up, but paper was bunching, I'll do
it again.  After using up two roles of wrapping paper for a two foot
toy, I looked at my masterpiece, thought, oh boy.

The thing look sad and quite the mess, it looked look a pink elephant
defecated on it.   I tried to fix it with more tape; perhaps a ribbon
would hold it in place.  That didn't work, so what's the use.

A two year old wouldn't care that her grandma's a klutz.  She'd
rip the paper apart and give the bear all her love.  And that's
what it's all about.  I could've to a fancy store to have my prize
wrapped right.

It would be pretty, but that didn't matter. Even though the thing
is a disaster, when all was said and done, it may be a mess; she'd rip the
thing open, wouldn't care about the paper but know it was
wrapped with 'Grandma' love.

This is marvelous!
Of course it means everything to be able to rip it apart and get to the present inside. Like so many things in life it's the inside that counts! What a blessing you have in each other.

Great write, Mary.
Reviewed by Felix Perry
Yes a grandfather I found this out as well, and decided I wasn't wrapping to please the adults who see it but for the little one who received it and besides...loosely wrapped, no boxes, and little or no tape makes it easier for tiny fingers to get at the good stuff.
Reviewed by Karen Palumbo
Awwwww, light and lively, but it is always what is in the heart that matters most and the two years old will love the bear just the same. Sure sounds like the tiny tot has a great role model to look up to..

Be always safe,

Best wishes

A delightful sharing, Mary. I'm not very good at wrapping either. I'm sure your granddaughter was thrilled. Love and best wishes to you,

You put a smile on my face as I am getting ready for bed. That is a good thing.

I LOVED IT! And I could even picture you doing it! We've all been there trying to wrap something ... it never seems to comes out right. Sounds like the idea of it being wrapped with Grandma Love came right out of her perfect little mouth! Is your granddaughter's birthday coming up soon?
