"What do we get grandma for Christmas?"
I've found my own little treasure, and my hope is that you might choose to make it yours, too!
Let me explain!
My fellow Grandma-blogger-friend, Lisa Carpenter, has penned a gem of a thoughtful gift giving solution. And no, it's not the usual "shelf-sitter" that's perused once and carted off to the garage sale bin after a dusty year or two in apathetic residence. The pages of One Hundred Things I Love About Grandma assemble a living, breathing collection of love notes co-authored by the crown jewels of her heart: grandchildren!
Here's how it works!
There! Now what do you think?
another set of plastic spoons? or.......
this endearing expression of heartfelt affection and gratitude to the lady who took newborn you into her arms, declared you "the cutest, best, and brightest baby she's ever seen!" and welcomed you to join her on the most gratifying "grandma and me" adventure you could ever imagine!?
Well, of course! You need to know where to find your own copy(ies) of One Hundred Things I Love About Grandma. Amazon has them. Feast your eyes there on the generous "Look Inside!" feature. Thriftily priced at $12.99. On pre-order status today, shipping soon on December 7, 2021. Plenty of time to fill and wrap. Does Grandma have her own stocking? Pop it in! - it's cutely sized at 6.5" square.
Oh, and Lisa's no "bumbling along, hoping for the best" first time author, either! While you're there, check out her First Time Grandmother's Journal - the place for Grandma's own perspectives and love notes written just for you!
Visit Lisa's blog, Grandma's Briefs, here to enjoy a heartwarming fellowship of grand motherhood!
You've already bought Grandma a crocheted potholder rack?
Well, hey, that's okay! We all make mistakes! What about Valentine's Day? Mother's Day? Her birthday? There's a chance you'll need more time to do this one up right. Share with your siblings. Let them initial their own contribution. Grandma wants to hear those love notes from everybody!
I received early release copies of this book in exchange for my honest Amazon review. I wrote this post additionally to share my enthusiasm for a product that I believe will bring joy to the lives of my readers.
Aw, wouldn't that just be the most wonderful gift of all. I can see Grandmas doing a happy dance while reading this. Plus, to think our friend, Lisa, wrote it. Win-Win.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a wonderful book J. Thanks for the review and I'll be going over to Amazon to buy it now :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sami! I know you'll enjoy it!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a cute idea, but my grandmother wasn't a fun loving one. She believed kids should be seen and not heard. I would be hard pressed to do something like that. She's long since been gone and I'm 71. I'm always amazed when I hear stories from others about how close they were with their grandparents. Doing some blog walking this morning and thought I'd pop in to say hi. Do swing by for a visit.ReplyDelete
