Not a week goes by that we don't see our grandkids every few day.
We have been blessed to have them close by and because of that
we can never seem to get enough of them, alway longing to see their sweet faces,
hear their sweet voices (babbling from Carson) and hugs.... oh those hugs!
One of the most challenging things for me as a grandma is not to spoil excessively.
Oh don't get me wrong....they're gonna get spoiled
just not spoiled rotten.
My daughter and son-in-love have done a great job with Audrey,
she's never been one to beg for toys when we go into stores,
that's not to say she's never asked (she has) but usually not,
she's very content to just look.
a little girls dream store
I have been hearing about this new store in Rochester called A child's Kingdom
Today I took Audrey, i thought it would be a fun little outing for us!
She had never been to the store....either had I
She was so excited to check out this new store
She ran ahead of me, apparently Grandma's to slow.
Her exact words as she entered the building,
"This is awesome, oh my goodness, this store is amazing, I love this place"
The store owner was at the counter by the door and heard everything Audrey said,
she looked at me and said, " this is exactly why I love working at this store"
So many fun toys,
and Audrey had the store all to herself.
and yes....today she got spoiled, it's been awhile!
*she didn't ask for a thing, I asked her if she'd like to pick out a couple of small toys
Two little stuffed chipmunks, a yellow tutu and a sucker then we were out the door :)
Her mom and dad have also done a great job of raising a grateful little girl,
she politely told the lady at the store Thank you, and
she thanked me over and over.
After our fun time at the toy store we met my daughter and grandson for lunch
My little buddy
cant get enough of him!
beautiful baby boy
This grandma gig is the best!
