Passing Muster

I took Neeps up to see his great-grandparents today, and it was just a lovely little visit with lots of sitting and chatting in the sun.
The ciiiiiiiircle of liiiiiiiife...

I've spent the past hour or so worrying away at a poem that captures the essence of the experience of seeing my mother's parents love on my son, but it's just not happening.  I think I need to let it percolate a bit.

I'm feeling pretty triumphant in spite of that, however, because as we were leaving, my Oma told me (and I quote) "You're a good mother."  If you knew her exacting standards for, well, everything, you'd be giving me a standing ovation right now.
