I want to add my grammy positives here. We took our two beautiful granddaughters to my cousin's farm yesterday and had the greatest time! It's a small farm so they were able to roam around on their own and explore the plants and animals. Kids don't get to do that anymore. We were always within earshot but all we heard were sounds of joy, laughing and giggling and a few "grammy, did you see this?". It was a nice, normal respite from our problems. For an afternoon we were able to act like normal grandparents. Maybe we need an amusement park for grandparents where for a day they can forget that they have to take care of family responsibilities that others cannot. Ice cream and cotton candy for all!
