Although I may look like a good grandma, the truth of the matter is that I am a procrastinator or perhaps I just do best with deadlines. Last fall my broken leg slowed me down. I did not get my Grandma Days for September, October, November and December organized. Finally, I decided to put them off until nicer weather—spring or summer so we could do some outside activities. Near the middle of August, I realized that if I did not get organized, I would renege on four or five Grandma Days. Now that the children are older, it is tough for them to find time for a Grandma Day once school starts. I LOVE these times together—more than the children love them. The pleasure is all mine.
I want to be clear also that without the support of Grandpa—both financially and by cheering me on, these days would not be possible. Also, most of these grandchildren are really step grandchildren—though to my amusement—I have had comments about how this or that grandchild looks like me. So if hubby had not married me, I would be lonely indeed and miss soooo much!
Perhaps you can understand that I do not want Grandma Days to fade away into oblivion so these past few weeks have been a flurry of wonderful adventures. This does not happen all of the time—they are mostly one time per year per child occurrences. I am concerned that I have been receiving undue credit and thought I had better clear up some misconceptions. Now you know the truth.
