Yesterday was Evan’s 2nd birthday. We had one of my close friends and her 2 munchkins over for the day and then we had K.F.C. for dinner and a store bought cake with balloons on it (Evan’s fave). It was a very simple and fun day for most. Yes, I said most. For me, the day was very bitter-sweet. Recently, he has started blossoming into this fabulous little person. He calls me “mom” , he insists on doing everything by himself, and his favorite word is “no”. Typical 2 year old, I know. But, wah wah cry wimper wah. And boo hoo for me. He is my baby, it’s hard to let go.
The day also was tainted by bad news that we new was coming. Troy’s Grandpa died yesterday morning. He had been sick for a while, with congestive heart failure and trouble with his blood pressure and kidney. He ate breakfast with his wife and daughter and went to his chair to take a nap. Grandma went outside to get the newspaper, and when she tried to wake him up to read it, he didn’t wake up. What a peaceful way to go. With a full belly, and in your favorite chair. We love you Grandpa. You will be missed in a very big way. Have fun with Jesus.
Weirdness: Troy’s great grandpa died on his birthday. Evan’s died yesterday, on his birthday.
