Yes.. You can love and hug on them then send them home when they get whiny..
One of my prized possession I lost in Katrina was a little needle point pillow that read: If I'd know Grandchildren were this much fun, I'd have had them first.
That about sizes it up.
Are grandchildren all they're cracked up to be?
I have two, my oldest is seven and I do not get to see him much at all. . .long story. But, I also have a brand new almost three month old grandson, and that little stinker stole my heart in about three seconds. He is something else, a little cuddler and so bright and alert and interactive. He is always happy to see me, and sometimes when he's fussy a few minutes with grammy and all is well. I envision many years of a very special relationship with this little guy and I am most thankful for it. So, yep I would have to say they are all that and then some. I jokingly suggested a number of names he might call me, one being the mush ball who can deny me nothing lol so my daughter calls me mush mush. And, when she says do you want to see mush mush, he just smiles lol. . .the kids got my number.
