I lucked out, big time, when we moved into this neighborhood.  Right next door is a retired couple, who were both school teachers, and who happen to live very far away from their own grandchildren.  So, when they get the urge to be grandparently, they borrow my children.  They take them to the circus, they dye Easter eggs, they decorate Valentine’s Day cookies, and they build gingerbread houses at Christmas.  It is a DELIGHT.  They are wonderful.  They love the kids and the kids love them and I love them all.

Day 21, something yummy that I didn’t have to create or clean up after.  Whoohoo!
