Someimes at night I wake up in my bed and want to see grandpa. I yell out “lao ye” (grandpa in Chinese) and then hop out of bed.
I look around and don’t see anyone – but am able to open my bedroom door and cross the living room. His door is closed, but I am tall enough now to reach for the handle and open it.
He normally wakes up when I click the door latch open, and I slip into bed next to him. He is such a good grandfather – so patient and kind.
