This is week 2 of “The 52” project. I blogged about it last weekend and you can read all about it here. Fortunately, this week, I didn’t have to photograph myself (shivers) and I was able to take a photo of two of my babies — my daughter and granddaughter. Although I have 6 1/4 grandchildren, due to ease and proximity, I spend more time with D. than with my other loves. D. is a 7-year-old girl with a head full of beautiful curls, and a killer (albeit, snaggle-tooth) smile. She is one of the warmest spirits that I know. She lights up a room and spreads joy and laughter wherever she goes.
D. attends school and is in the 1st grade. I welcome any opportunity to spend quality time with her. Fortunately, her school welcomes parents, grandparents and other family members to have lunch with their children, when it is possible. On Friday, her Mom, B., and I went to have lunch with D. In between bites of a typical school lunch, I took this photo of the two. It is special to me because B., the youngest of my three children will always be my baby, and seeing her happy and smiling with her baby, warms my heart. I am blessed to serve as witness to this special moment between mother and child.

Really lovely picture. How fantastic to be able to go and share lunch with the children! I’ve never heard of a school doing that before!
Me neither. A parent or family member can go as often as they want. All of D.’s friend know her mother and me. Blessings, Lydia
