Dear “Grandma”…

If you’ve been visiting my blog for a while you probably know I have a daughter.  I do mention her  frequently, but from time to time I’ve also written specific  posts about her (like here and here) or written about something exciting she has been involved in  (like here).  And, of course, there are a couple photos of her with one of her horses on my sidebar.

My daughter isn’t married but that doesn’t stop me from hoping that someday, when she finds “Mr. Right” and the timing is right,  she will bless me with at least one grandchild.  I’m quite partial to little girls so I dream of being able to buy a granddaughter cute girly things like this…

well, I think you get the idea.

However, even though my daughter likes kids, she readily admits she likes animals a whole lot more so I have often joked the only “grandchildren” I’ll probably ever have are the four-legged, furry-faced kind, like cats, dogs and obviously, horses.

Yesterday  I got an email  from a retail website that made me laugh.    Of course for you  to fully see the humor in this email,  I should probably remind you that  Jolie is one of my daughter’s horses.  The email read:

Subject:  Look What Jolie Found at Red Haute Horse
Dear Grandma,
Jolie thought you might be interested in learning about the following item:
Zebra on Purple Polka High Fashion Horse Halter
Our Red Haute Horse High Fashion Horse product line is made in the U.S.A. of 100% vibrant color-fast polyester.

I like this!

Visit Red Haute Horse to view the full selection of products available at Red Haute Horse


Since Jolie apparently likes purple, I wonder  if  “Grandma” could talk her into 4 of these adorable little lavender numbers for her hooves instead?

I agree too, it brought a smile to me too. I have a Daughter and she has given us 4 Grandchildren. Two are in heaven. Amy was never a girlie girl, but she has one. Alayna is almost 11 and she is so girlie. I do hope you get the chance to be a Nana one day.

I have 3 boys so I dream of someday having a granddaughter also! I figure between the 3 of them I have fairly good odds but they're still pretty young so hopefully it's not for a while:) Whether I end up with Grand boys or girls I'm going to spoil them rotten!

That is a hoot! I agree that every baby girl must dress in ruffles, polka dots and eyelet! It's a must!

Deanna :D

I'll join you in the dream for a sweet baby girl! All I have so far is a cute grandDOG named Buster! But, there is hope as my girl has met a really nice young man! ;D ♥♫
