Hi Grandma!

I hope you're like me. I hope you hoard cardboard boxes, art supplies, stickers, and yarn and spend more money on your grandkids than you do on yourself! I hope your desk drawers are bursting with magazine clippings about games, cooking, gardening, and crafts for kids. I hope you love backyard dinosaur egg hunts, family carnivals, paper mache animal safaris, glitter, haunted houses, talent shows, clothesline art displays, and making mini-scarecrows to guard the giant pumpkins you grow and harvest with your grandkids every year.

I hope you're not one of those prune-faced-sour-pickle-no-fun "don't-you-kids-dare-mess-up-my-house" grandmas who would die before they agreed to turn a guestroom into a life size aquarium! But then, who cares about them? Kids don't want to go over there anyway!

If, however, you are like me, we are really going to get along well. In my case, "what happens at grandma's" is something I LOVE to tell, and you can read about it all right here! Invite your imaginative friends too. Grandmothers are very, very special people, and the ones who unselfishly enrich the lives of their grandchildren with creative attention and crazy fun are priceless treasures. This world needs lots more of us!
