So yesterday I had a lovely conversation with my Gramma G. She asked me if Gavin has an artificial hand yet and I told her that he does have one, but its too small and he needs a new one.
Her response: "Well you better get him one before he starts school or all the kids are going to make fun of him!"
I told her that actually, kids will find something to make fun of no matter what...whether he has no hand, a plastic hand, a weird eye...
She said, "He doesn't have a weird eye!"
"Yes, I KNOW Gramma, but I'm just saying...kids make fun of kids. I have 2 hands and I still got made fun of. EVERY kid gets made of for SOMETHING. Gavin won't be any different. He'll just have to be a little tough."
She said, "Well he'll have to be A LOT tough."
OK Gramma, thanks for your encouraging words.
