    Another reason to have a stash

    These boys are 4 and 5 years old - cousins. They think their Grammy can do anything - I must admit I encourage that belief. Pirate "hats" - yep. Super Hero Masks? - yep. Unfortunately I had to decline the making of swords, but the 5-year-old made one out of card stock - covered with stickers - so all was good.

    The last pic is of the 4-year-old racing on a sunbeam. Ain't it great to be a kid?

    Looks like they are having a fun day. Isn't it great that you get to raid your stash for such a good cause?

    I agree, Grammys can do anything, I have grandchildren from 19 months to 24 years and when they need a thing done they say just call grandma, she'll do it. Lovely grand boys!!! I bet a day at your house is wonderful.

    Well, this wasn't done in a day - we had all spent a week together at "the river" and the younger one came home with us for a few days ("two big sleeps" - it was really "three big sleeps" but he lost count). THe older one is with my son for July (one of those situtations) so is here 6 days a week while my son is at work. We are tiredly blessed.

    Spoiled? Hmmmm. No, just greatly cherished. (They also hear a lot of "you get what you get, so don't throw a fit" and "If you're gonna pout you gotta get out". They quote those lines to each other. I'm a school teacher so we hold Grammy's School to maintain their pre-school skills. The TV is rarely on. I wish every child I teach could be so spoiled. They do time out for infractions, but I've been known to pull out a wooden spoon for a single "pop". Please don't report me, but their parents didn't suffer from this kind of correction when disrespect or danger was involved.) But ... they do get an awful lot of my dedicated time - you're right about that!

    Too cute. Love the masks. It sounds like you are providing the right amount of let's have fun love, and let's do what's right love. They will grow to be nice young men because of it. Nice job.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.
