“Grandma, What are you... Oh, I know! You’re kneading. I’ll sing you a kneading song.”

He proceeded to sing the song he had learned in pre-school, while making bread. The rhythm was perfect as his grandmother continued to knead the dough and smile. Pulling up a stool, the three-year-old climbed up to help while he continued to sing.

“What are we kneading?”

“Coffeecakes.”

“Oh, yuck! I don’t want coffee in my cake.”

“No, it’s like cinnamon rolls- only bigger,” reassured Grandma.

What was to have been a baking session with her daughter-in-law turned into a precious Grandma time. They did make one pan of irregularly-shaped cinnamon rolls, which were the “bestest” ever; and six coffeecakes with various fillings.

That was a year ago, but at Christmas time, her now four-year-old grandson asked, “Gram, are we kneading cinnamon rolls this year? I still know the kneading song? And we can make those coffeecakes- just fill them with the good stuff... not coffee. Okay?”

He remembered! That is when a grandmother’s heart is truly blessed.

Someone said, “Only in eternity will we know how powerful the influence of a grandparent.” This grandmother works at making all their Gramma Moments count for eternity.

a few gramatical errors but other than that a very sweet story

Very sweet. This was as sweet and comforting as one of those coffeecakes. Well done!

Cute. Love the message and the "Grandma Moments". Makes me want some coffee cake. You could even put coffe in it for me! ;)

This was precious and a delight to read. I could picture the little tike helping. Great lesson at the end that could also be applied to mothers and fathers. The line about the coffee in the cake was cute and so much like what a child of that age would say. Great job!
