Grandma's Checkered Apron

My sweet Grandma Grace had a favorite expression when we were being less than angels. She would say "I'm gonna turn you over my checkered apron." Of course it was a hollow threat and I'm fairly certain we were never disciplined by her at all. Come to think of it, I'm not sure she even had a checkered apron.

She would make us pancakes for dinner in her cast iron skillet and would top them with butter, sugar, and milk.

We would stay up into the wee hours of the morning playing with her pretty dishes and tea cups, taking them out of her cupboard, washing them, putting them all back in. Now that I'm older that sounds an awful lot like washing dishes but Grandma had a way of making it seem like play.

When she got tired and wanted to go to bed, she would say "Let's see who can fall asleep the fastest." She would recite the entire "Owl and the Pussycat" story from memory while we fell asleep. We never knew who won that game but I'm guessing Grandma did.

I hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane and are inspired to journal and scrapbook some of your favorite childhood memories.
