Another Reason Grandkids are the Best

We were talking this morning about how much we love the grandkids, and how they're just like more kids to us.  It occurred to me a bit later, as we were enjoying our unhurried morning routine to get ready for work, that one of the good things about being grandparents is not having to get the little ones ready for school.  Those morning rushes out the door were usually stressful, and I can't say that I miss the hurry-hurry moments of getting on shoes, finding backpacks, signing permission slips, etc.  So, chalk another one up to the grandparent side - good times with the kiddos without the morning rush.

I think that is exactly why it is so much more fun being a grandparent. You don't have to deal with those daily stresses and on those occasions when you do -- you can enjoy them!

My grandkids stayed with me for a couple of weeks recently, and I was responsible for getting them to school and picking them up. I am grateful for the experience, because I learned things about them and their routines and lives that I would never have known otherwise. But I'm also glad that their parents are back in the getting-off-to-school business!
