I recently took time off from blogging. My wife and I went to visit our three grandchildren, all under the age of four, in another city. Oh yes, and to see our son and daughter-in-law as well. I think it is safe to say grandparents can be more objective than parents because we are one step removed from grandchildren due to the fact we are not responsible for their day-to-day care. And in our case, we don’t see them daily because of where we live. We can observe their behavior and come to an educated and rational conclusion about these little people, these gems of humanity. I know I can say in all honesty that my grandchildren are perfect: calm, emotionally balanced, pleasant to one and all, full of fun, and generous.
