My grandma Haidong, she is a typical Bai woman. Usually, she is surrounded by a green scarf. I think grandma is very beautiful because she always has a kind smile on her face. Grandma grew up in Haidong. She can't speak a word of Chinese. She speaks to me in Bai dialect. I can't understand a word.
When I was in the second grade, my grandfather came to Xiaguan to pick me up and send me to school. In this way, Haidong's family had only her grandmother. She was always busy with her work in the home and in the fields and orchards. Grandpa goes back once a week. When he comes, he always brings many fresh vegetables and fruits, as well as dozens of eggs. Grandpa said, grandma said, "native egg" is nutritious, and asked me to eat more. From then on, there are always "native eggs" in our fridge. At that time, I thought, grandma must have a lot of chickens at home, so there are so many eggs that she can't eat.
During the Spring Festival, I went back to Haidong for a few days. When I went to grandma's shabby yard, I found only three hens and a rooster. I asked Grandpa, "are the eggs you take to Xiaguan every week from these chickens?" Grandpa said, "it's these chickens." It turned out that grandma saved the eggs laid by the hens every day. When grandpa came home, he would take them all to us.
Grandma can't speak a word of Chinese, but I understand her love for me.
