Gotta love those forward-thinking Schools that run “Grandparents and Special Friends” days.
One of our three daughters who has a boy and a girl, sends them to a school where this is an annual event. My wife and I love attending and being shown around by the kids, as well as attending the concert they have all worked so hard to produce.
Then we get taken off to the library where lo and behold, there is a myriad of new books and stationery for the Grandparents to buy for their special little people. Our two just love reading, so we always make sure we have some money with us to get what they ask for.
The joy on their faces is a delight to behold. Then when we visit, they love telling us what they have read and how much they enjoy reading.
The moral of the story: Never lose sight of the really important things in life!
