‘Someday you’ll understand’
whistling through a paper, playing a toy piano and Kirstendancing with sunglasses on and banging on imaginary drums.One of the mysteries of childhood is how children pick up on certain people, places or things and bring them by os-mosis into their own world.Somewhere, Kirsten saw the picture of an artistically beau-tiful temple in Chicago. Duringher first visit there to see her Aunt Sandi, she wanted to seethe magnificent structure.Fortunately, it was open, sothey were actually able to goinside and walk around. Whenthey got into the spacious sanc-tuary, she pointed toward theceiling, void of any pictures,and said, “Look, there’s Jesus,He’s up there at the top.” Now, when anyone asks her where Jesus is, she says, “He’sin that temple in Chicago.”In fact, she loves to recreatethe temple when she and AuntJulie sit on the floor and buildentire cities of structures with building blocks and imagina-tion.The biggest thing going onin her life right now is “pottytraining.” It was happening acouple of weeks ago when weShe calls me “Booger,” andlaughs the moment I walk intothe room.“Grandpa’s funny,” she saidlast weekend as we sat in the backseat together on our wayto a lunch on Saturday. Of course, we had just broken arice cake together, our own lit-tle special, “breaking of the bread.”The joy of hearing her say, “Ilike Grandpa’s food,” was amoment of ecstasy, anepiphany of the heart as threegenerations of memories con-verged on my mind at the sametime. I recalled how I used tostand beside my GrandpaLangham’s pipe stand inWoodburn and threaten to stick my hand down into it.“Oh, you don’t want to dothat,” he would say. “There’salligators down there.”Forward to the next genera-tion. I will never forget the mo-ments when my parents wouldwatch our three children whileJoyce and I would go away for a couple of days.“They’re all yours,” my dadwould say. “I have themspoiled, now you can figure outhow you want to deal with it.”As quick as the song, “Sun-rise, Sunset,” from “Fiddler onthe Roof,” states, the next gen-eration passes and there I amwith our granddaughter,Kirsten, sitting on my lap as we pretend that we are sneezingand our nose goes flying acrossthe room.What a hilarious time it wasat our son’s a couple of weeksago when he recorded our fam-ily band, each member con-tributing an instrument such asclapping blocks of wood,took her to Wrigley Field to a baseball game. In fact, she en- joyed the praise so much for telling us that she had to go,that she would even “have togo” many times when the tripwasn’t necessary.Such was the case, her dadthought, in the seventh inningwhen once again she said, “Ihave to go potty.” To that hereplied, “Kirsten, you’ve al-ready gone 10 times during thegame. You don’t have to goagain.”Within seconds he jumpedup and said, “We have to go.”He was soaked, she wassoaked, this wasn’t a “wolf cry.” It was the real deal, aunique memory from her firstmajor league baseball game!This past Saturday, it hap- pened again, in another sense.We were sitting in Ruby Tues-day enjoying the salad bar when daughter Sandi went tothe bathroom.Kirsten, of course, wanted togo with her. When Sandi re-turned, she was laughing hys-terically and reported thatKirsten had wadded up a huge piece of toilet paper, handed itto Sandi and said, “Don’t for-get the paper.”From mealtime prayers, torock band drummer, to seeingher “nose” go flying across theroom, to seeing her cuddle upin her grandma’s arms to listento a story (many stories whenit’s time to stall at bedtime),she’s quite a bundle of joy, aloving gift from Heaven thatgives meaning to my dad’sstatement one time when hehad three grandchildren piledon his lap, “Someday you’llunderstand.”
