Stuck Inside...Mostly

 I was thinking the other night about the things that change from when you "The Parent" to when you are "The Grand Parent".

I really didn't think that much changed, but it really does.
For one I'm a lot slower. Granted I'm almost 26 years older than I once was. Add to that about 1,0000 pounds.
Ok. Not that much, but it feels like it some day's.


We used to do some fun stuff mixed in with the "your NOT doing that in the house" stuff...

I have mellowed a lot. things change and I've found that there are some things that really...just don't matter in the big scheme of things.

So please take a picture tour of some of the things a January day at Grammy & Poppy's may hold in store:

Drawing, painting, making, and reading...

Dancing, spinning until your dizzy enough to tip over is always good...for young ones.
I can't even watch for long without getting sick to my stomach.

This is new...and really doesn't happen much.

Play in the snow until we were frozen. It seemed to take longer to get ready than it did to get cold and come back in.

We did sit on the heater, but not while eating cups full of snow...

I think the only thing that's really changed that much is that riding your bike in the house was one of the things that was on the not allowed list.
Instead we did safe things like, sliding down the stairs in sleeping bags, or a crib mattress. Hide n seek. "Hot" and "cold" searches.
I didn't do as many tents then as we do now...
Baking cookies is always on the list someplace with making play dough.

What kinds of things did you, do you, or are you doing during the coldest month of the Utah winter?

  1. Lovely post. Riding bikes inside, huh? We do a lot of crafts around here. My kids like construction paper. :0)
