My grandkids mean the world to me. When they come over I try to plan activities for them to do. Mostly because it’s fun, but also because its a lot easier to keep them happy when they are busy.
We decorate T shirts, make fairy gardens, catch fireflies, make crafts, bake, and of course they love swimming in our farm pond and driving around on Grandpa’s 4 wheeler.
I post pictures of our activities for my friends to see. And I always get the comment, “You are the perfect Grandma! I love all the things you do with your grandkids!”
But like any social media or online scrapbook, I get to choose the pictures that I share with everyone. What you don’t see is Grandma yelling “Stop fighting or I will call your mother!”
No I am definitely NOT the perfect Grandma. I lose my temper when they fight with each other. I lose my patience when I am tired and they don’t want to go to bed. I do my best but I’m only human. I just don’t take pictures of that side of me!
