Almost Speechless...LIving in Tristan's World! It's Banana Bread Time!

Enjoying Some Weekend Time With Tristan!

Tristan and Nani -making banana bread

I am blessed to have Tristan overnight every Friday while my son works.  We do a lot together.  If I have to show property or write a contract, Rick will take Tristan to the pool or on a walk. 

Every Friday evening, if Tristan has been good, we watch a movie.  He looks forward to some popcorn with the movie.  We watched Hocus Pocus on Friday.  He is looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2 this coming Friday! 

I told Tristan that we would make some banana bread last week, so I got all the ingredients, and we did this together yesterday.  He does enjoy helping me.  It is all about giving him new and different experiences and skills he can use later in life.

The quotes below fit anyone who has little ones in their lives.  For many years, Rick and I were like grandparents to my sister's kids. My parents were in Louisville KY. We did a lot together and took on the role of "grandparents."  It is wonderful to have little ones in your life.

Good morning, Sheri... I'm always shocked with each new picture to see how much Tristan has grown. Quality time spend with grandchildren is so precious. But that being said, I'll admit that I'm happy our grands are adults and I'm not subjected to kid movies any more! :) When my husband used to take them to the movies, he's get them settled and then go "next door" to an adult movie.

Sheri, Tristan is growing like a weed!   Sounds like you both are having wonderful Friday evenings and creating lots of great memories.

Hi Kathy Streib - This batch I made without walnuts because Tristan doesn't like them.  However the rest of the family does.  My next batch is going to have either walnuts or Macadamia nuts.

Hi Brian England 

Thank you!  I think our home is a stabilizing force for him. We love seeing him so much.  It keeps us young.

Hi Nina Hollander, Broker - Interestingly enough, Tristan stays glued to the TV.  Most kids his age get bored fast.  I usually fall asleep during the show!

Hi Joan Cox -

We do.  When my kids were growing up, Friday was pizza day.  Tristan likes pasta or pizza.  So Friday is morphing into that kind of night! It is easy for me and I can spend more quality time with him.
