George Bush Adores His Grandkids – But There Is 1 Thing He Absolutely Refuses To Do With Them
FaithTap Staff 3/13/2017
No more press conferences. No more global summits on war. No more international meetings about global warming. It's now mostly fun and relaxation for the 43rd president of the United States, minus the few public appearances he still makes. But the most important date on his calendar is the one with his granddaughters!
Former President George W. Bush absolutely dotes upon his two darling granddaughters, three-year-old Mila and one-year-old Poppy. Their mom is Jenna Bush Hager, one of the former president's twin daughters.
Just recently, Former first lady Laura Bush ratted out her husband and told People magazine that he's "a spoiling grandfather." The former president has no problem admitting it, either. He's relishing his new role.
"You want to play a video game, I'm the guy. You want to eat ice cream? I'm the guy."
Nowadays, George W. Bush enjoys a more relaxed lifestyle. But his daughters and his granddaughters, along with his wife, are at the center, even if he is teaching the little girls how to eat ice cream before dinner.
Grandpa George admits he's likely "undermining" every life lesson that Jenna and her husband, Henry, have been trying to teach their adorable daughters. The former president seems quite at ease out of White House and in those two little girls' hearts.
There is, however, one thing the president won't do - at all. Not happening. At least not yet. Do not ask him to attend a princess tea party.
"Not quite there. I mean, I'm sensitive now. But not that sensitive."
Aw, how could you say no to a face like that?
Even though he's out of the Oval Office, he's still using his veto power against those tea parties. In the meantime, El Jeffe, as the girls fondly call their grandpa (Spanish for "the boss"), shares his passion for painting with Mila. He's even set up a kid-sized easel for her in his art studio. It's an activity they both adore.
"I'll paint and she'll paint. It's really fun."
As the girls grow older, those tea parties might sound more and more appealing to him - all with a pink feather boa, some glitter, a cookie or two and a dainty cup of tea perched at a tiny table. Some day, grandpa just might sit down with them for one of those tea parties. Even though he used to run an entire country, those little apples of his eye might overpower the former president and convince him to take a well-deserved break for some tea.
