What do you do when you are not RVing , the schools and kinder gardens are closed due to Holidays and you kids are at work? RIGHT- YOU BECOME A BABY SITTER or as we call it COMANDO GRANDMA AND GRANDPA- does it happen to you too?
At 730AM 2 Grand kids (1 1/2 and 4 years old)were delivered to our front door in full gear,extra dippers,bottles,trolley and some extra clothes……”we will pick them up after work around 5PM we have to move or we will be stuck in traffic, so long have a great day” .
So here we are with 2 smiling kids looking at us as with a strange look that says “ you are stuck with us for the day,what is next on the agenda?”
As we are still on our first coffee (we are retired and mornings are usually when we wake up NOT when some one wakes us up) all kind of thoughts went through our heads,should we give them some left over wine from the Passover Dinner and wake them up at 430PM just before they are picked by their parents? Or should we drive to a park and get squeezed by a bunch of other Grandparents trying to do the same with their Grand kids?
Well ,as you can intelligently guess we did the second thing-AND OF COURSE HAD A GRAET TIME,but at the same time and in the back of our head we thought “In late May we are on the plane for our 10th RV summer trip and will be back home in the end of October..-LIBIRATION IS On THE WAY”.
Before my humorous mood leaves me and I get back to normal (whatever it is) let me say this ,we of course love the “small league guys” that run & run till your head spins but it is nice to take a break from them for a while and become GRANDPARENT and NOT A PARENT we were there once and sure do not want to go there again even if BIOLOGICLY we could…
So before we disappear for 5 months we do everything to be with them as much as possible (I am back to my normal mood again)…Take a look and see for your selves:
