  • Chocolate-covered cake bonbons are delicious

    While talking to my daughter-in-law the other day, my 17-month-old grandson interrupted us because he needed his Mommy to hold him.

    We kept talking right through his jibber jabber, then she tried to get him to say a word that he had been using that week. All of a sudden he yelled out “Hey, Nonna!” (they call me Nonna). I thought it was my 2½-year-old granddaughter, Sophie; but no, it was Maddox.  Both of us were amazed that he said it, and of course, it made my day. At least he knows who I am.
