When you have a couple of grandchildren for a few night “sleep overs”, you soon rediscover where you have been.

Potty training revisited; ”Grammy, Mommy only said two squares.”

Continual housecleaning revisited: “Where do your dirty boots go?”

“Mommy says if we eat over the table, we won’t make a mess.” “Yes, but if you eat over your plate, you’ll miss the table!”

Two light ropes and 2X6 make a great swing….makes a great battling ram for your sibling too. Great PyraDanes don’t help either. They can WEE body slam like Doink the Clown vs. The Kamakazee Kid.

Play can be considered work but when work comes around it’s never considered play.

Spontaneous hugs and kisses supersede all exasperation.

The number one grandchild request: “Let’s have a snack!”

The number one grandmother response…a grandmother who tries to give up snacks…the great comforter…: “Sure, why not!”

I have created the number one resolve to all disagreements. Unfortunately, it can only be used by grandmothers who live in the wide-open spaces of the country. “Both of you need to hug each other and then go run up the hill to the mail box and back.” A great feat here for a 5 and 2 year old….it does induce longer naps….they try to cheat by the third time around so keep an eye on them.
