  1. Thanks for the amusing post! It sure brings back the good ol’ days of parenting – days I sometimes miss, but I’m quickly cured of this feeling after having my grandkids here for a week. A fun week, but not a life I wish to go back to after experiencing freedom!! Still, it is very good for you to find the humor in it while you are living it!
