I have a grandson
20 years old!

I suggested daughter write something about being the mother of a 20 year old, then realized, OMG! Effective 3-10-12 I have a 20 year old grandson! Definitely (in my mind) exclamation point worthy for this week’s Trifextra challenge.

(yes, that gentle giant hulk towering over me is my first-born grandson)

    Thanks for linking up, Barbara. That ‘fore and aft’ made me laugh out loud. Lovely response to the prompt. See you for the weekday prompt, we hope.
