The Love of Zeyde....

My dad (who wrote that great Omer counter over there, by the way, isn't it cool?) is known in our home as Zeyde, the Yiddish word for Grandfather. (It's pronounced in a few ways, zay-dah or zay-dee, we use the latter.)

He likes to come and visit us on Tuesdays, my day off, and hang out with me and with his grandkids. Often, it's just Yael and I to entertain him...and he doesn't seem to mind this special time with his youngest grandchild!

Here he is hanging with my girl last Tuesday...(he also brings me Starbucks, isn't that nice of him?)

Hmmm....can I get this on my hand?
Ta-da! I can!

See what other pictures people think are great this week.

The bond between grandparents and grandchildren is so special. sometimes I feel bad about my kids being so far away from both sets of grandparents, who live in Israel.

Oh, so sweet! I hate that we live so far away from Harrison's. But he loves to call them on the phone.

So sweet. Like Vered, I too have moments of guilt for living so far from family, but we do treasure our visits when we have them.

Sweet photo! Can't wait to snap a couple hundred of my kiddos in the same pose with my dad this weekend! It's so great that your dad lives in town.
