Grandma’s special gift.

By Elisabeth James

th

Well my name is Kelly Frost and I have had an interesting life. My parents are both very successful and work at Microsoft and as such we live in a big beautiful house in Seattle, actually it is bigger than we need as it has 5 bedrooms upstairs a master bedroom and then two pairs of bedroom each which share a bathroom with the room next to it like in the TV show the Brady Bunch. Well enough about that so let me tell you a little about me.

I am 16 years old and very small for a boy my age, actually I stopped growing at age 11, and I am only 5’4″ tall and weigh about 115. My story really starts when I was 7, I loved to watch my mom put on her makeup there was just something special about it, she looked so pretty. I guess I was jealous, I knew boys were not supposed to be pretty but I couldn’t help myself. Anyway when I could I would sneak a tube of lipstick or some eye shadow to play with. I thought there was something wrong with me but I couldn’t help myself. I think it was when I was 9 I started putting on some of my mom’s clothes that I could somewhat fit in. this is about the time I started growing my hair out as lots of boys my age had long hair. Now I am not saying I wanted to be a girl I just loved everything about them and the way they looked.

Any way when I was 9 I also got my first computer for the start of the school year and it was the best gift I had ever got as I was able to go online and I found Facebook and all kinds of boys just like me from my age up that like to dress as girls, well it didn’t take long for me to set up a Facebook account so I could chat with them and suddenly I wasn’t alone. Now with a name like Kelly I didn’t think to change my name so this would mean I could set up a Facebook page for my boy self but that was okay. It was great to talk with others and know I was not alone. I even put a couple pictures online when I had on mom’s dress and some makeup but nothing you could clearly see my face. Then other good thing about the computer was I was able to send e-mails and now I could e-mail my Grandma who lived in Portland. My Grandma was really well off, I mean she lived in a bigger house then we did and traveled all the time which meant I really didn’t get to see her very much at best once a year so this was a way I could keep in touch. Now she was really nice but she was also a little eccentric at least that is what my mom and dad called it but I guess when you get older you can do what you want.

Well I was shocked when my Grandma said she was coming to our house for Thanksgiving but I was really looking forward to it as it had been over a year since I had seen her. I was really excited and my parents just told me to be on my best behavior and not do anything to make her made. Any way we picked Grandma up at the airport on Wednesday night and she gave me a big hug and said how happy she was to see her granddaughter which caught me off guard, mom just said it was because of my long hair. Any way when we got home Grandma had little gifts for all of us and when she got to me she handed me a couple small boxes and to my surprise inside were two dresses, she gave me a big hug and told me it was time I stopped being such a tom boy and how cute I would look in them. Mom and dad both told her I was a boy but she just smiled and told them she knew how they had wanted a boy but it was time I started dressing like a girl. Mom gave me a hug and apologized and told me Grandma had a little trouble with reality and they would make it up to me so I thanked Grandma and gave her a big hug. Now deep down inside I was thrilled with the dresses as now I had my own in my size.

When Grandma left both mom and dad told me how sorry they were about the dresses and they would fix it. I told them thanks and I understood about grandma. Mom was going to get rid of the dresses so I had to think quickly. Mom why don’t we put them in the next room just in case Grandma comes back we wouldn’t want her to think I just got rid of them, mom thought that was a great idea and so did I as I could get into that room anytime I wanted through the bathroom.

Now it was getting close to Christmas and we received several boxes from grandma, one for mom, one for dad and 3 for me I was shocked as grandma had always sent gifts but this year she really went overboard. I couldn’t wait for Christmas day. Well it finally got there and I got so many great gifts from my mom and dad and even Santa and then it came to the boxes from grandma. I opened the card and I saw right away it said to her special granddaughter on Christmas so my hopes were high she would send me something pretty I just had to not act to excited. I opened the first box and sure enough it had not one but 5 pretty dresses in it I got to the second box and when I opened it I didn’t have to act shocked as I was. Grandma had sent me an assortment of bras and panties and a few nighties in such pretty colors I looked at mom and dad and they were just as shocked as I was but probably for a different reason. The third box had several pairs of shoes all with heels ranging from 1″ to 4″ which I loved but for someone my age probably a little more grown up then I was and also a makeup set. I looked at mom, she gave me a hug and told me they would make it up to me. I picked up the boxes and mom asked me what I was doing. I just smiles and told her I was going to go put them in the spare bedroom so when Grandma came she could see them. She gave me a hug and told me what a wonderful child I was to care so much about grandma.

That night I could control myself so I went to bed early, mom and dad thought it was because I was disappointed and they promised to make it up to me. I snuck into the other room and got a bra, panty, dress and makeup and soon I was all dressed up and looked better than I had ever. I took a couple pictures and posted them on my Facebook page and this time you could see my face not that anyone would recognize me. I soon got comments from some of my friends which I now had over 200 and all of them told me how cute I looked. I told them all about the presents I got from grandma and they said how lucky I was which I new. Now as I said by this age I had stopped growing so I was now happy about that as I would outgrow these wonderful gifts.

Well as I said I loved this and Grandma started coming around more, Easter, My Birthday in June, Thanksgiving and Christmas and she always bought me cute dresses, shoes and girl things and mom and dad just gave up trying to convince her I was her grandson and thanked me for being so understanding of a grandma. Well it was Easter when I was 14 when Grandma showed up with this really pretty pink Easter dress for me and I thanked her for it and gave her a big hug. Any way it was about an hour before dinner when Grandma said we should all get dressed up for dinner today, she looked at me and told me to go put on my new dress. Now she had bought me many things over the last few years but she had never asked me to wear them. When she came I would stay in the spare room with all her stuff and that had always been enough. I looked at mom and I could see the look on her and dad’s face and I could tell they were about to say something when I realized I had to say something or risk an end to it all. I walked over to mom and said well we normally don’t dress up but if mom dad thought it was a good idea I would agree. Mom gave me a big hug and said she would help me. On the way upstairs she thanked me for being so understanding, I just smiled and said for one day I could do it. We got into the room and I was getting the dress when mom sat me down, sweetie it is so nice of you to do this but I am afraid you will also have to wear the underwear as she held up a pink bra and panty. My heart almost stopped as this was too wonderful. I did my best to hide my excitement and told her for grandma I would. Soon I was standing there wearing a bra, panty, and a beautiful pink dress and of course some low heels. I was in heaven. We went outside, dad gave me a hug and told me he knew how hard this was on me but thanked me for putting grandma first. Grandma’s eyes lit up when she saw me and she gave me a hug and told me what a beautiful girl I was and it was a shame I didn’t dress this way more. Grandma also had on a beautiful dress that almost match mine in color. Mom and dad went upstairs to change and grandma too me back into the room. She sat me down and told me I was old enough to wear a little makeup. With that she put on some eye shadow, mascara and a pretty pink lipstick. I was in shock, what would mom and dad say. When they came out they saw us in the bedroom and saw me, I just smiled and told them Grandma thought I was old enough. We all went down stairs and on the way down mom gave me a hug and promised to make this up to me and how proud she was I was thinking of grandma first.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and it was the most wonderful day of my life but I couldn’t tell mom that. I did not want the day to end and I did everything I could to keep from changing but soon it was 10 pm and time for me to go to bed. Mom and grandma came upstairs to help me and grandma picked out one of the nighties she had given me to sleep in. from then on whenever Grandma would come I would wear a dress and pretend I was her granddaughter and my parents would always reward me afterwards for being so thoughtful. It was the perfect life and I so looked forward to Grandma’s visits which seemed to increase. Seems as she got older she cut down on her traveling an d as such would come visit us about every 6 weeks which gave me a lot of time to be a girl. Grandma even took pictures which she would send me copies through e-mail and I would post to my Facebook page. She even taught me how to put on makeup. Even a few times mom would come in while she was showing me and give me tips. It was really so much fun. I even got pretty good at it.

By the time I was 15 I was pretty good at dressing up so much so that when we knew Grandma was coming over I would get dressed up before she arrived, mom would even help me maybe with my hair or makeup and we would pick out the outfit I was to wear which was getting harder as my wardrobe had really grown as Grandma always had something new for me when she came. I think we all got used to it as mom and dad no longer shall we say made it up to me which was okay as I totally enjoyed my girl time, it became the new normal when grandma was here although we never went out which is something I really wanted to do now but that was okay as I got time to dress and I had my friends online I could video chat with while I was dressed up and I had posted so many pictures to my Facebook account. I would chat with some of my friends online that were older about what it was like to go out and I had several friends that were real girls and we would chat about what it was like to go to the beauty salon and get your hair done or a nail salon and get your nails done and it always sounded so much fun. I new someday I would get the chance to go out. Or what it would be like to live for a week or more as a girl to do this every day.

Well it was my 16 birthday on June 21st which fell on a Saturday and Grandma was coming to town for it. My Parents told me we would go out and celebrate after grandma left so I was happy as I would get to spend my birthday as a girl this year. Grandma arrived on Thursday night so while dad was at the airport picking her up mom and I were at home getting her granddaughter ready. By the time they arrived home I looked so beautiful and so much like a girl no one would ever be able to tell and I could see in my mom’s eyes she was proud of the way I looked.

Grandma’s eyes lit up when she saw me and she gave me a big hug and told me how pretty I was and how lucky she was to have such a beautiful granddaughter. Even dad told me I looked pretty and gave me a kiss on the cheek. Grandma had a few presents for me but she told me I had to wait till Saturday, my birthday to open them but maybe if I was good I could have one present tomorrow which was Friday. Mom and dad both had to work so it would be Grandma and me at home all day alone and I hoped she had something special to give me.

Grandma smiled Kelly my dear lets go out and have some fun today maybe some shopping or something. Now I knew I should have said no as I have never gone outside like this but I so wanted to. How much fun would that be? I gave her a hug and told her that sounded like so much fun. She smiled and told me to go put my ID, some money and makeup in my purse as the cab would be here shortly. I was shocked she had already arranged for a cab.

By the time I got back downstairs the cab was there and so I took my first steps outside. Now we did have a big house which also meant a big yard and long drive so I really didn’t have to worry about the neighbors seeing me which made it a lot easier. Soon we were on our way. We got to the mall and the cab left us off at one end and grandma and I walked to the door and inside and I past several people and none of them pointed at me or laughed, a couple boys did take a good look the way I do when a pretty girl goes by. Just inside the door was a beauty parlor and grandma headed inside. I paused for a moment and grandma smiled at me and said, honey you are 16 now you need to take better care of your hair and nails now so I went in. we were greeted at the door and I found out Grandma had made an appointment for us both.

We started off with our hair, first a wash and then cut just a little off the ends then some conditioning and then another rinse and then my hair was set up in curlers. Now I had played with my mom’s curling iron at home but this was a first. Once our hair was set we were led over to these chairs where they soak your feet and give you a pedicure. Oh this was so relaxing and I was enjoying every minute. It was everything I had hoped it would be. When they were done she asked me what color I wanted. Now I have played with makeup but never nail polish I looked at grandma and she smiled and told me any color I liked so I picked out this bright red color which grandma liked too so we both got our toes painted that color. They looked so beautiful and no one would see them unless I was barefoot so I thought I might even be able to keep them painted once grandma left.

From here we were led over to these little table for our manicure. Again they soaked our hands and fingers and pushed the cuticle back at least that is what the lady said which made my nails look longer. She then glued some extensions on the end and cut them down till they were about a half inch long. She then started to spread a paste over them and shape them. It was so relaxing and such a great feeling. It took her almost an hour to do this and then she took the same bright red color and painted our finger nails, now this I knew I couldn’t keep which I was sad about but I had them now.

We then went over to another chair where we put our hands under these lights for the polish to dry and while we did this they gave us a facial. They put a cream on our face that kind of hardened and then washed it off. They then spread another paste above my eyes and pushed down and rubbed then I felt them pull away and I jumped. Up to now everything had been so relaxing and fun but this hurt. I suddenly realized I had just had my eyebrows waxed. I got a little scared now as things might be getting out of control. The lady put a moisturizer on my face and massaged it in which relaxed me and then she started to apply makeup. I couldn’t wait to see what I looked like.

When this was all done we went back over to the chairs we started at and they took the curlers out of my hair and brushed it out. I was could not wait to see what I looked like. Finally she was satisfied and turned my chair so I could look in the mirror. I was in shock, I was both scared and thrilled at the same time. I did look totally beautiful and completely like a 16 year old girl but I also had a very feminine haircut and style with bangs and my light brown hair was now a blonde color and really curly. It would be impossible to make this look at all like a boy’s hair style. My eyebrows were also well shaped with a high arch and there was nothing at all boyish about them, actually most girls in my class would love to have eyebrows like this. I looked at grandma and told her I was worried what mom and dad would think. She smiled and gave me a hug and said, my beautiful granddaughter you are a young lady now and they will see you for that, they will be so proud of you. I knew what she meant and had I been a girl that would have been true but I was their son and they had been going along with this while grandma was here this was a little more permanent. There really wasn’t anything I could do so I made the best of it after all it is something I dreamed about doing. I couldn’t wait to post pictures on my Facebook page and chat with some of my friends especially a few of the girls I had been chatting with.

It is funny the friends you can make online they are from all over the world, and although you never really meat them they are in some ways really good friends. Most of them other crossdressers, some real girls I had met and even a few older woman that in some ways were like online moms that I could talk to and it was amazing the support I got from all of them. The girls all told me I needed to do what made me happy the older woman told me the same thing and that they would love their child no matter who he was or how he wanted to live his life, one even encouraged me to tell my mom and dad how I felt. Tonight when I got online I would have so much fun but right now I had to focus on the here and now and enjoy this time out.

We walked into the mall and I had a whole new kind of self-confidence as I knew I looked as good as any other 16 year old girl at the mall, actually probably better. We stopped at a little jewelry store and grandma bought me a ring, bracelet a necklace and some earrings. The earrings were little gold hoop earrings and they were for pierced ears. I looked at grandma and she smiled you are 16 you should have your ears pierced, I looked at the lady and figured why not as at this point pierced ears would be the least of my problems so I sat down and in a few minutes I had gold hoop earrings in my ears.

From here we went to the food court and had a late lunch and then we hit the mall shopping. We went to every store that sold anything that a girl might want. Shoe stores, dress shops, Victoria’s secret which is one shop I had always wanted to go into but was too afraid. We even went to a bridal store and I tried on a wedding dress. I tried on so many beautiful dresses today it was like being in heaven and the funny thing is somewhere during the day I stopped thinking about being a boy dressed as a girl and started thinking of myself as a girl and enjoying it. It was the most wonderful day of my life.

Well by now it was after 5 and grandma called a cab to take us home. We were on the way home when mom called me on my cell phone. She said her and dad were worried when they got home and we were gone. I told her grandma had wanted to take me shopping today and I heard the pause in her voice, did she take you as a girl? I said yes and I heard my mom tell me how sorry she was and she hopes I was okay. I really didn’t want to go into it on the phone with grandma right next to me so I just told her it was fine and we had a great day and there was nothing to worry about and then I did tell her grandma did go a little over board today to give her a heads up. She asked what I meant and I just quietly said two words, beauty parlor. Mom let out a small gasp, sweetie I am so sorry for you, I will make this up to you somehow. I just said its okay I am fine and I knew I would soon be home and they would see me and what had happened.

The cab pulled up in front of the house and for the first time I was scared. I got out of the cab and grandma and I walked to the front door, I did my best to stay behind her. We got inside and my mom came to great me, she stopped and her mouth dropped open and she couldn’t speak. Grandma looked at her and said, see what a beautiful young lady your daughter has turned into. Mom gained he senses back and said yes she is beautiful. She gave me a hug and whispered in my ear that everything would be alright. She then called dad by saying, honey come see how beautiful your daughter is grandma took her to the beauty salon today for a complete makeover and you will not believe how beautiful she is now.

Dad came around the corner and looked at me and I could see in his eyes he was confused, not upset but more of a wow he is a beautiful daughter. He paused for a moment and looked at me, then grandma and then me again. Then he walked over and said I guess my little girl has turned into a beautiful young lady and he gave me a kiss on my cheek.

We all went in and had a nice dinner and talked and I could see mom and dad looking at me from time to time trying not to stair, and as time went by we got back to a more natural sense in the house and it was almost like they overlooked what had happened to me so I felt more relaxed. That night when I went to bed dad actually called me over to kiss him good night and mom and grandma took me up and helped me clean off my makeup and get ready for bed.

The next day my birthday I got up and mom, dad and grandma were all waiting for me downstairs. I opened my presents from mom and dad and they were the normal type presents. I opened grandma’s presents and I found several pairs of skirts, several pairs of Capri’s and about 20 tops all very colorful and so pretty. Mom and dad said we would have a nice dinner tonight at home as mom would prepare anything I wanted. As I thought Grandma spoke up, nonsense it is her 16 birthday we have to do something special, I have planned a special day we are going downtown to the city center and go up in the Space Needle and walk around and see the city center. Mom and dad looked at me and without thinking I said that sounded like fun. I no more than said it and realized how it must have sounded. Mom smiled and looked at dad and said well if that is what my daughter wants lets go. Dad looked at me and said okay it sounded like a fun day.

I went and got my purse and mom followed me, are you sure you are okay with this sweetie, we will be outside all day. I looked at mom and said it would be fine it was only one day as long as it was okay with her and dad. Mom gave me a little kiss on my cheek and said it was fine she would love to have a daughter for the day and with that we were off.

It was funny as the day went by we all became more relaxed, I acted like a 16 year old girl and mom and dad treated me that way. Mom even pointed out a couple things I did that a girl shouldn’t and then we both broke up laughing when we realized what she said. The day was awesome to say the least. No one questioned if I were a girl, people held doors open and even several boys looked at me and when one came over to talk to me dad was right there like an over protective father should be. We had a wonderful day and then went out for dinner and it was after 9 when we got home and I was so tired I was ready for bed. Without thinking I went over and gave my dad a kiss and he gave me a kiss back and then I kissed mom and grandma and up I went to bed.

Sunday Morning g I got up and mom and dad were downstairs for breakfast but Grandma hadn’t come down yet. Mom said morning sweetie and dad asked how I was doing. I told them I was fine. We sat and talked for a bit and then mom gave me a hug. Sweetie we have a problem, I just looked at her. You know we love you and we are so proud of the way you have acted and all you have done for your grandma and she didn’t mean any harm to you, she loves you very much as we do. I looked at them both and said I know. Well dear the things she has done, the hair color it will be weeks before we can color it back unless you want to cut it all off. The nails again will be a week or better before they can be removed, we can cut them short but still you will have acrylic on them and the eye brows there is nothing we can do about them till they grow back. I looked at them again and said what are you saying? Mom looked at dad and then said well dear, we know Grandma is leaving today but it will be very hard for you to look like a boy for a while, it may be easier and only if it is okay with you to be a, well a girl, our daughter. I thought for a moment this was my fantasy coming true to live as a girl for a few weeks.

I paused for a moment to make sure I didn’t sound too excited and to get just the right words. I guess if you think it is okay I mean if you don’t mind it might be easier. Mom was getting ready to say something when dad spoke up, we love you Kelly and nothing will change that, not how you dress or what you do, you are still our son, well I guess daughter. All that matters are that you are happy and healthy. Plus I will admit I had always hoped we would have another child maybe a daughter and well I actually enjoyed yesterday. Mom and I both looked at dad for a moment as we took in what he said. He was the one I figured would be the least understanding. Mom looked at me and said your father is right, boy, girl, son, or daughter I will love you no matter what. You are such a good person for doing what you did for Grandma and like your father I would love to have a daughter to do all those mother daughter things with. I was actually a little jealous about grandma going to the beauty salon and getting her nails done with you as I thought it should have been me. Does that sound weird?

I looked at them and could no longer hold back, I love you both so much and I feel so bad as you think I am such a wonderful son for what I did for Grandma. The truth is I really liked this, when she started giving me girl clothes I loved it as I really like dressing this way. I was too scared to tell you the truth, I am your son but I feel more comfortable this way. I would like to stay your daughter for a while if that is okay with you. Dad got up from the table and came down by me and looked me right in the eye, I was afraid that what I said may have changed everything. Dad leaned down and gave me a kiss on the cheek looked at mom and said I guess we have a daughter for a while. Then he looked at me, now young lady I expect you to be a proper young lady and that is how mom and I will treat you, do you understand? I said yes. That is good and remember we both love you no matter what. He looked at mom and said I guess we will have to fix up that room proper for a 16 year old girl. Mom looked at me and smiled we will have so much fun dear but you must promise me one thing, you will always be honest with us. If you want to go back to being our son you must tell us or if you want to stay our daughter that is okay, even if you want to permanently change. Now that is something had never thought about as I had always planned on meeting a girl and getting married someday, I had never even thought about boys. I looked at mom and told her I would be honest with them and that I didn’t ever see me wanting to change permanently as I had no interest in boys.

On the bright side I would no longer have to pretend just when grandma came over. Just about this time Grandma walked in had gave us all a hug. She smiled at me and then my mom and dad. She said she would be sad to go but would be back in 5 weeks again for a visit as she loved all of us so much. I gave her a hug and said I would be looking forward to it and maybe we could go shopping and to get our nails done at which mom spoke up and said only if she could go also. Grandma hugged me and said that sounded wonderful and she could think of nothing better than going to the nail salon and getting a pedicure and our nails done with her daughter and grandson. I gave her a kiss and then stepped back and looked at her. Mom was the first to speak, what did you say mom? She smiled again I said there is nothing I would enjoy more than getting my nails done with my daughter and grandson. I looked at her but you thought I was your granddaughter?

Grandma let out a little laugh, sweetie I may be old but I could never forget you were my grandson. I just knew you liked to dress as a girl and wanted to but were too afraid to tell anyone. So I figured if I treated you as my granddaughter and bought you the things you needed you would say something, the beauty salon was my last hope, I hope you don’t mind but I love you too much to not help you be who you feel you are.

I looked at her, how could you possible know, sweetie you are so young. When you put my e-mail address into your e-mail account it linked it with your Facebook page and I got a friends request. I was a little surprised to see you dressed up and posting pictures and even though I couldn’t see your face clearly I recognized your bedroom. We have been Facebook friends for several years now, I am Miss James. She was one of the older ladies I had been talking too online for a couple years, the one who told me that my parents would understand and I should tell them as all parents want their children to be happy no matter what. She looked at me and gave me a big kiss, those chats we had changed my life and made me realize how important family is and what I was missing when I realized I didn’t even know my own grandson. I didn’t know what to say so I just gave Grandma a big kiss and told her I loved her. She looked at me and asked if I would be seeing her off at the airport today and I told her I would as she had helped me accept who I was and I loved her for it. And so that is how my life changed. It is now the end of summer and I have lived the last two and half months as a girl. I talked with mom and dad last night and told them I want to stay this way for a while longer so I have transferred to another school and will be going to school this year as a girl.

Mom and dad both love me and they love having a daughter although sometimes I think they miss their son especially dad when we are late going someplace and dad hast to wait for not only mom but me to finish our hair or makeup. Mom loves going to the beauty salon with me every other week to get our nails and hair done. I think mom has more of a glow about her now and I think she looks better now than she ever has as we do all the girly things together and she now also has long acrylic nails and wears makeup all the time and has even tried a few new hair styles. Being a girl is so much fun I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

PS Grandma is planning on moving here soon as she just bought the big house across the street, yes it is a 6 bedroom 4,000 sq. ft. house, she is downsizing.
