The other day I ran into my daughter and granddaughters at an Italian Restaurant. They were there with my dtr's girfriend and her daughters as well, Kelly's friends. Kelly is six years old.

Well, this was shortly after I had lost all my hair from the chemo and I was wearing a scarf. As I approached the table to say hello, Kelly hopped off the seat and yelled at the top of her lungs to her little friend while pointing at my head, "My Grandma is bald! My Grandma is bald, Just ask her, she is bald!" Well of course everyone turned around and I slowly sank into the floor. LOL. I simply said to Kelly, keep your voice down honey.

That was a humbling experience, but shows the innocence of children!


Thought I'd share that funny story with you all.

Hey Linda,
Looks like you're the coolest grandmama on the block to me.  This shows the love of a child who thinks you are so wonderful that you are too cool and the first to "start the trend".  It's actually very sweet, although I imagine it took a few minutes for you to feel the love.
All my best to you!

It's all new to her and she certainly doesn't understand what is happening with you.
Children are so innocent>>she is young.

You are my hero Linda, a beautiful, brave and courageous woman.

Love you hon.
What a great chat we had yesterday!!

      Good morning Lindaloo! What a cute story, and yes the innocence of children at that age is something to behold.

I always enjoy our conversations together, and your friendship is clearly genuine. There are so many members willing to travel down this road with you. Hurry up and get well soon please! :)

Aww Lindaloo...like they say "out of the mouths of babes" Like everyone else said, it's obvious how much she loves you and is so completely comfortable with her Grandma to be able to say that. Hope you are feeling good today and please keep us posted, we are all here fighting with you! Take care.

Miss Linda, It's good to hear that you are gouing about your biz going out to p/u a pie!! How sweet that Kelly wanted to "show you off" to her friends! Of course she couldn't know that it would be imbarrasing for you, she just probably thought it was cool and different!
I'm so proud of you and like Suz said, You are my Hero!!!
Love & Hugs,

Thanks for all your responses, guys. She sure is a sweetie, my Kelly. She is my whole world, that kid and her sister, Anna who will be 2 in November.

I'm late to the party but there's not much more I can say than what's been said. Kind of shows how much we get attached to certain things as adults - and your little Kelly probably thinks it's a very cool "show and tell" item for her friends. I'm glad you were able to bounce back and not let it get you down.

BTW I just got off the phone with my cousin who has been so busy running around (in between daily radiation treatments, M-F) she's hardly had time to call me. Yesterday she went to a festival with relatives who live about an hour away. Today she went to a 90th birthday party for a friend, and tonight is babysitting for her two grandchildren (the oldest, who will be 9 in a couple of weeks, is named Anna!). I can't keep up with her! And you remind me so much of her, with the same spirit and courage. You're gonna do just great!

Kids... That's so typical. I'm glad you kept your sense of humour.
