Tuesdays with Grandma

october 006

Every Tuesday the boys go to Grandma’s house while I teach piano lessons at cousin’s house.  The boys look forward to Tuesdays, and I think Mom does too.  When we drive up her street, she is always out front waiting for us with a smile.  They don’t even give me a second glance as the hop out into Grandma’s arms and whatever wonders she has for the next three hours.  Oftentimes, when I return to pick them up, Mom has already left for work, but has a plate of dinner waiting for me—which I enjoy while getting Dad time.  Usually Dad is either making the kids waffles, pancakes, or ice cream cones for dessert.  I love coming in and seeing what kinds of things they have done with their Grandparents.  Sometimes it’s something scientific with grandpa, or some kind of interesting baking experiment with Grandma, and sometimes it’s a craft (like the one on the photo).

 

With this project, Colton cut out the letter shapes by himself and also glued on the creatures. 

 

The boys are so lucky to have BOTH sets of Grandparents close by to spoil them. Just last week, Sean’s mom picked Colton up on a minimum day of school and took him to Chuck-E-Cheese with a whole bag of tokens to use. Then on the way home, she treated him to a double scoop ice cream cone, and then took him back to her house to spend the night, and made him a dinner of hot dogs and macaroni and cheese. Sean’s dad, Pop, bought special for Colton, bacon-egg-and-cheese biscuits because they are Colty’s favorite. Yea, it’s a tough life with Grandparents ;)

Pin It!

I have to admit I am jealous that your kids get to spend so much time with mom and dad. I wish Kade (and soon to be Tadd) could be so lucky. At least he knows Nickell's parents (and her siblings) from all the trips we've taken down there for weddings/shoots. He also knows Serena well. He loves it when Serena comes over to babysit on Monday's while Nickell and I go to class.

Your boys are lucky! It makes me sad when I think of how much my kids are missing of their grandparents and cousins too. But mom just sent us a Halloween package and we watch the home videos that mom sends us.
