    So proud! Plus, GRAND Social No. 230 link party for grandparents

    So proud!

    Megan, mama to my three grandsons, posted the following text and photo of Jak on Facebook the other day:

    Someone got dressed all by himself today!! 😂#shortsarebackwards#shoesonwrongfeet #sweetsocksbro #getshisstylefromdaddy

    toddler dressed self 

    The dapper little dude is so darn proud of himself despite the adorable backwardness.

    I'm so proud of him, too, because of the adorable backwardness. And that giddy, goofy grin!

    I very much look forward to witnessing Jak's fashion sense live and in person when he and his family visit my house in TEN DAYS! (But who's counting?)

    GRAND Social No. 230

    Happy GRAND Social day! I'm delighted you're here. Enjoy the socializing with your fellow grandparents!

    grand social link party

    How it works:

    • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.
    • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.
    • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.
    • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)
    • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).
    • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. Or, you can post the GRAND Social button anywhere on your page using the following code:
    • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.
    • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

    I love the stripes, plaids and shoes on the wrong feet! He looks so darn cute and should be praised on what a good job he did. I'm so happy for you that they are coming for a visit!
