Being a grandmother is the best! Don’t get me wrong, I loved being a mother and raising my kids. But let’s face it, now I can spoil the grands and send them home if they get too unruly or too hyped on sugar, not that I would ever provide that to them…ha!
I admit it. It’s a lot more fun to have someone else, like their parents, to do the hard stuff or that discipline thing. You remember, right? That discipline thing that makes the little beasties more bearable for other humans that have to spend time with them. Besides, they do have to eventually grow up to become responsible caring adults as future world citizens. But this grandma has found that this growing up thing happens even faster for the grandkids than it did for the kids. So, in the meantime, Grandma’s just wanna have fun with the grandkids and then send them home … after some ice cream.
