I learned very early on in parenting that grandparents have an inherent right to spoil their grandchildren rotten. Even if you tell them not to, they do it anyway…and they smile all the while. I cannot believe how fun my parents are!? They were never this fun growing up…never! It’s like our children have brought them to life. But…thinking back…our grandparents were exactly the same way! I think it’s just the way it’s supposed to be!
This morning my mom brought heart shaped sugar cookies decorated like turkeys from our amazing local bakery for the kids. Just a fun, thoughtful treat on Thursday morning. Thankfully they were still frozen from the bakery so they have to wait until after school to dig in! Aren’t they so cute!?
Today I am so grateful that our parents literally explode with love…and yes, even spoil…our children! These are memories they will never forget. The relationships they have with each one is so unique and special and I am grateful they get to grow up so close to each set of grandparents. It truly is a blessing.
