With having my granddaughters for a week during the holidays, I have planned several things to do to keep us busy, including shopping for a New Year's Eve party. Tonight after getting home from shopping, my 11 year-old granddaughter (one of the ones who lived with me for 6 years and 8 months) asked, "If we lived with you again, would you spoil us for a little while and then stop spoiling us?" I was first taken back in surprise, then I chuckled and said, "Well, I would probably spoil you a little bit and yes, I would definitely stop spoiling you. I'm not sure what prompted the question, but I wanted her to be assured that I really hadn't changed very much. Living the grandmother role versus the mother role is definitely easier when it comes to living everyday life.
