On the lighter side...
During the last couple weeks, this blog has discussed famous people with nicknames - "Pretty Boy" Floyd and "Baby Face" Nelson - so today I want to introduce someone else with a nickname - "Cheeks Mahoney".
This person isn't nearly as famous, or infamous, as my other topics because she's my new baby granddaughter. She's gained so much weight during the last couple months making her cheeks so heavy that she has a hard time lifting them up to smile. It made me laugh when I saw her on "FaceTime" a couple weeks ago, so I gave her this nickname.
|She's worth a million to her grandma|
Of course, she's nothing like the gangsters I've been writing about. Since she was born on Valentine's Day this year, she hasn't had any time to do much beside eat and sleep. The only thing she's ever stolen is my heart, but that only makes her more loved. She took it with her when her daddy got a different job and moved away from Milwaukee. Now I only see her on the computer, when they come, or we go to visit.
"Cheeks Mahoney" does warm my heart when her face lights up with a smile. There's nothing more special than a five-month-old laughing and smiling. All the joy in them reaches out to interact with Mommy and Daddy, or Grandpa and Grandma.
She could be classified as "Grandma's Cutie #1" since her birth, but then she's the seventh person to hold that title. Also, she'll be replaced soon when my eighth grandchild is born later in July. Or maybe I should say I have eight "Grandma's Cutie #1's".
Hope you enjoyed this week of something different. :)
