    I'm not sure how this started, but now whenever I have my two grandsons ( 2 and 3 yrs old) in the back seat of my car, going to pick up their Mommy at work, I sing 'Trick or treat, smell my feet, give me something good to eat". The 3 year old will say 'faster!' and I keep singing it faster and faster. Eventually, when I can't sing any faster, he'll say "Grandma, you funny!". No other song gets this reaction.

    Sorry to tell you but Grandparents don't have rights. My daughter took our granddaughter that had lived with us for the first 4 and half years of her life. We had no rights, it felt like she died, we knew we would never see her again. That has been 10 years ago January.

There was enough confetti to do a couple of "dustings' but dh used the entire bag! So when ever I see them or talk to them all I say is "MOON & STARS" & they know what I'm talking about. I've reassured them a Grandma's & Grandpa's love is forever & ever no matter what ANYONE tells them. We will love them till the day we die. So sad what a mother can do to put a damper on your relationship with you & your grandkids.....I also have construction paper now with scrapbook stamps of the hearts, moon & stars so every holiday they are going to get hearts, moon & stars put at their bus stop since she wasn't too appreciative of it being on her property!

    One way I tease when the grands are in a bad mood is to tell them "don't smile", they can't resist its all smiles.

    I squint one eye at them and at that point they know I'm going to chase them!

    One year when I first started to raise them, only two DGK they were about 4 & 7 My ex stood by them and trying to figure out what was wrong with them. Then all of a sudden he says 'Now I know, look you guys you dropped your smile' talk about them looking for their smiles on the floor was the most loving moment I felt.Now their 10 % 13 years old It only works when they think about PAPA and those times

    Here in Indiana Grandparents do have rights. I have a friend who went to court and get one weekend a month with her DGK.

    I have 4 DGS that live 3 blocks away from me. The youngest one is going to be 3, the next one up is 5, then 9, and the oldest is 13. They all have scooters,( those little things with the tiny wheels) and yesterday I heard knocks on the door and here the 3 youngest ones came over to see me and... to get a popcicle. I keep the tube kind in the freeze at all times. So they each one had one, then the little one says, "Lets go home" and the other ones said "Can I have another one?" So of course, the little one changes his mind-until he got the popcicle in his hand. Then he wanted to take it home. So I made each one give me a hug and a kiss or they couldn't have the popcicle. So they all gave me a big hug and I gave them kisses. They don't like giving kisses anymore, but I can get one - with a popcicle!

    Cute! They grow up so fast don't they? I remember when my son (34) went through that you don't hug me stage when he was about 12. It was embarrasing to have your mom hug you! LOL Fortunately his youngest son now 12 loves the hugs! He gives me shoulder and back massages too. His mom has a massage business so Jake knows how to give good ones!
