Are You a Midget?

Are you a Midget?

I have six grandchildren, aged 9 to 15. Three of them are significantly taller than I, and the other three promise to be there soon. This was never so obvious as when we stood for a group picture Sunday night.

Actually, it reminded me of another picture. Shortly after a son’s  wedding twenty-one years ago, there was an excellent picture of me, the bride,  and my three children so I put it in a frame on my desk. One of my second-graders looked at it intently and asked, “Mrs. Judd, are you a midget?”

“Gregory,” I said. “You see me every day. Do YOU think I’m a midget?”

“No,” came the reply, “but you look like one in that picture!”

What to say? I love my family and friends. I also love kids, cats, and books. Oh, and potato chips and Cheez-its. I am a retired teacher who still loves to be in the classroom, so now I am a substitute teacher.

    You are not a midget! I’m noticing how different it feels as your children approach (soon to surpass) your height…it’s a whole new perspective.

    Have a great birthday!
