Good morning! I am a bit under the weather today but wanted to share this cute video I made of my grandfather yesterday morning. It’s not great quality as I just kind of grabbed it on the fly as he was coming inside. My dad suggested he put a pair of suspenders on to hold up his pants.
I couldn’t help but laugh to myself when I saw them.
Right before this video, he was insisting that someone stole his 8 wooden paper towel holders from his workshop and was freaking out. Nobody stole them. He probably just thinks he made them and he didn’t.
After 10 minutes of him insisting I go help him find the missing paper towel holders, I said, “what’s up with the suspenders?” (trying to change the subject)
He said, “oh your father put them on me this morning.” Then he did a little dance and laughed at himself.
I laughed and said, “wait, I need to get that on video.”
He rolled his eyes and said, “oh for the blog!?” (He likes the blog. haha)
Something that started as him being mad and frustrated quickly turned into a memory that I will always remember. This video makes me (and the rest of my family) laugh every time we watch it. This video is my real gramp. The gramp that is silly and likes to be funny. The gramp that I have always known. I prefer to see these moments vs. the crazed angry ones that are fueled by his dementia and alzheimer’s. You can read more cute stories on our about us page under Dementia Diaries.
Also, don’t forget to check out our Holiday Season Must-Haves we shared yesterday.
It’s a great list and some good sales! Have a great weekend!
