I have the greatest job in the world - being a stay at home grammy. Every day at my job someone tells me that they love me. We do some pretty great things while the 4 grandkids are here. We watch movies, they put on plays for me, they have dance parties, and sometimes they fight. But I wouldn't trade this life for anything.
Once each week, I like to make them special lunches. Most days we have lunchmeat or peanut butter sandwiches, but once a week or so, Krissy and I make something special.
I have a few blocks of cream cheese that should be used soon that are in the refrigerator. Since they all like ranch dressing, I think I'll add a ranch dip packet to the cream cheese and make roll ups with sliced ham, maybe a pickle, and a few soft tortilla shells. The next day for lunch, we can slice them and voila - our own take on "sushi". I pinned an idea for "fortune cookies" made with fruit roll ups, and think it would be a great lunch to serve while we watch Mulan.
We'll blink twice and they'll be ready to go back to school, Krissy in 8th grade, Bubba in 5th grade, Izzy in 1st grade, and Jake will be going to preschool three days a week. I'll miss them terribly, but Izzy and Jake will stay come after school. And as we all know, time marches on.
