One of the compensations for slower metabolism, increased health care premiums, gray hair, a free gym membership, no copays, and countless mailings from AARP, that comes with maturity is grandchildren. I have two, Kellen, age four and Joshua, age nine months. Every Monday, We get to spend the day with this little sweetie to give his mom a chance to improve the lives of the affluent in need of home makeovers.
With two of us, one can keep and eye on him while the other works remotely. Joshua has not one, not two, but three wi-fi networks at his house. I am partial to music from Pandora while Lorraine prefers watching yet another picky HGTV family buy or remodel a home. As if it was not all made up. One wonders what sort of information is being imprinted on this little mind. If I watch him alone I will plug into an audio book.
We usually get dinner out of the deal, which means we can avoid traffic on the way home.
There are many worse ways to spend a Monday and not many better ones.
