“When is Grandma coming, Mommy?” I asked referring to the
time my Grandmother said she would be here to babysit me for the afternoon
while my Mommy goes to the doctor.
“She said she would be here by lunch,” my mommy replied. “Why’s
“Because Grandma told me we were going to play make-believe
and I have my doll house all set up and the coffee is ready.”
“What kind of coffee are you serving her?”
“Here Sadie. Make her some of this,” my mommy stated as she
handed me a box of Kemosabe chocolate hazelnut instant coffee.
“Doesn’t Grandma like Maxwell House?”
“Yes, honey, she likes Maxwell House, but the last time she
was here I gave her a cup of Kemosabe hazelnut instant coffee and she fell in
love with it.”
Two hours later my Grandma and I were playing make-believe
house. “Here Grandma,” I began as I made believe to pour some coffee into my
Grandma’s coffee cup. “I made you some of your favorite coffee.”
“Oh good, Sadie,” she replied smiling. “I sure could use a
cup of Maxwell House now,” she added.
“No, Grandma. It’s not Maxwell House. It’s Kemosabe
chocolate hazelnut instant coffee.
“How did you know that was my favorite coffee?” she said
“Because mommy told me.”
“” I just love spending quality time with you, Sadie,” I heard
my Grandma whisper. “You’re so precious.”
