This weekend will be the start of something grand! GrandKIDS, that is! Grandpa (Dan) and I will be hosting Clara and Robert, on our own, for ten days, or so. Although I have gone to their house to take care of Clara for a few days at a time, this will be the first time to keep the two of them, and the first time to keep them, sans parents, at our house. I hope it will be just the first of many such times, especially after we move closer to them next year.
One thing I want my grandkids to remember about me is that I always had time for them. So I have set aside all other responsibilities for these days, and plan to dedicate all of my minutes and hours to them. I foresee hours and hours of book-reading, coloring, block-building, doll-dressing, tickling, truck-driving, pretending, cookie-baking, hide-and-seeking and a few “field trips” to kid-friendly spots around town.
Isn't it GRAND?
