Santa is a Wannabe Grandpa

Santa is a wannabe Grandpa, for sure for sure. And not only is he a wannabe grandpa (at least I've never heard stories of his kids), but I think he was Cuban in a past life. Oh si, because BB recognizes a fellow extremist when she sees them.

By outer everyday appearances we grandparents keep busy in a simpler, more even paced lifestyle. Note as an example Babushka and Sweetie's Christmas tree.  A true reflection of us as a couple- his obsession w/anything Peanuts related and BB's obsession w/anything chocolate related.

HOWEVER, inwardly we are mischievous elves reliving Christmas's past and waiting to share the joys of those memories.  In abuelo language that's called Puberty ::shudder:: Payback Presents y Santi Clo is the Numero Uno hombre honoring this tradition. Queee?? JU SO FONII!!! Por supuesto, and but of course BB has proof.  How else can you explain this?

My grandsons PicaPica y Rinquincaya 

Are you looking at those faces?  
Who else but a grandparent, someone who remembers Christmas's past would give these two-

Santa's the poster child of Grandparents.  Not only does he give these kinds of marvelous presents, but he then disappears into the night until the following year, leaving the parents the sounds and pieces of the season.  And he gets milk and cookies for doing this!!

As Babushka sits here, far away Up North in The South ,  seeing the pictures via Feibu and sipping her coquito spiked café, I am missing my grandchildren and can't wait to see them.  Once again the Man in Red sent the perfect gift to BB. In total solidarity and knowing, he sent me earplugs and combat boots.

Santi Clo, every year I believe in you more and more.

Groovy Spanglish speaking Grandma of 6 who loves life and all its adventures. Motivational while still keeping it real, Babushka shows how all things looked at with gratitude are good, and how to say to la vida- JU SO FONII!!!
