The Overnight

Three grandsons and an overnight. From 5:30 pm we were the effective parents of three boys under age 8.

It brings back fond memories of times gone by watching three excitable boys.

Really? No.

Thank goodness for a pool to keep them amused and to tire them out. Followed by pizza and a movie--then thankfully, bed! I did get to reprise my role as surfboard pop-pop while we were in the pool.

I should have known that morning would come early though. I think it was before 6 am when the first one rose with the brightening rays of the sun. By 7 am--they were all up and getting back to the business of the day--eating, watching movies, and playing.

Such a great life. Donuts, movies, and doting grandparents.

How do I sign up for that?
