This is a really sweet story. You have captured and made real a family - three generations of the most precious coinage on earth.
Very well written piece. I enjoyed Grammy's sweet and cheerful ways with Jalen. I enjoyed the lovely little story all the way through the ending.

Keep it up, fellow writer!
I loved this little story. So typical of a child, and yes, a Grandma. These memories are always so precious.
What an adorable story. Amazing how those things happen at the most inopportune time, but it didn't bother Grammy at all. Good job.
Funny! I loved the image at the very beginning, of Grammy with hands up in worship but signalling her grandson at the same time.

There are some punctuation errors that need a final polishing to really bump up the quality of this amusing story.
I could sooo relate to this story, having 10 grandchildren of my own! Memories to last a lifetime! Great job with this story, Ruth, I loved it. It warmed the heart.
"Fangs" for the reminder that grandchildren are our reward for having kids of our own! You've woven warmth, excitement, family love and devotion to God into this huge first step for a child, and you've portrayed it with skill and clarity. Very well done
Ruth, I love your humor and am beginning to think we are "somehow" related! I got a HUGH lol out of: he was giving exaggerated toothless smiles to everyone.
