Y3 - 227/365: Grandad Mick
Although Ryan only has one Grandad here in the UK, with his other being in America, we have decided to give 'Honorary Grandad' status to Mick (his Uncle Daz's Dad), who is his cousin Amy's Grandad.
Mick joins us at Em & Daz's every Sunday after tea and dotes on Ryan as if he were just as much his own grandchild as Amy. Ryan is fascinated with Mick's hands and doesn't hesitate to demand a story when he's over, so it all just seems fitting.
Of course, this makes it nice because we don't feel Ryan is missing out on the experience of having a second grandparent and we couldn't think of anyone better to take this role than Mick.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
