We have spent the last few days de-grand parenting the Popster...the princess has had to be re-programed to recognize that Mom isn't as compliant to her demands as grandma...
Oscar on the other hand had awakened with a new interest in reading/writing...Thanks grandpa for all of your hard work with his sight words. He asked me tonight if he could write a book for his teacher. He really did a good job on it. I think I will post it later.
truthfully I wish we had the grandparents closer. They seem to be able to connect with the kids in a way that I often don't get to. Not that I don't connect with them, it is just fun to see how much the kids really love their grandparents.
In the meantime...I will continue to primp the princess as much as I can, within reason. And will try to really build on the foundation grandpa placed in lil'o's head.
Thanks Grandma and grandpa for coming to visit! You are welcome anytime...in fact how about you move into my basement permanently.
