What Goes Around .....

It was my grandson, Eli's 5th birthday and he was joyfully opening all the presents he received. Like his Dad, he opened packages by ripping off the bows, jerking off the ribbon around the package and making scrap-paper of the wrapping paper (except for the Spiderman wrapped packages - those he took apart very carefully).
Already reading some, before he even got into Kindergarten, he saved the biggest for last, so it took a while until he got to opening Grandpa and Grandma’s present.
“Wow”, Eli exclaimed in delight, upon seeing the mini drum set that his Grandpa and Grandma had got for him. “Thanks Grandma, thanks Grandpa, this is just what I wanted!”
It was after Eli went to bed that that our son came to us. “Mom, Dad, I’m surprised at you. Don’t you remember how it used to drive you crazy when we used to play the drums in the house growing up?”
Grandma smiled and then I said “We remember Son, of course we remember.”
