One of the greatest compliments I’ve ever received was from my daughter-in-law who posted this statement on social media:
“My kids think Nana’s house is the equivalent of Disneyland. Thank you, Nana and Papa, for being such wonderful grandparents!”
It surprised me to read her post, because I didn’t think our house was that special. In fact, we don’t have any fancy toys or gadgets, and we don’t even have a swing-set in the backyard. But when I really stopped to think about it, I realized that what mattered most to us and the grandkids was the time we’d invested in connecting with them—really connecting.
Even though my husband and I were raised in a completely different era, we’ve been able to interact with the grandkids in ways that show them “we’ve still got it.” So, if you are needing some fresh ideas on how to show your grandchildren that you’ve still got it, here are some super-fun and simple ways to do just that! (Disneyland not included).
