Daily Living Made Easier

Did you know that even the bravest of grandkids can occasionally get homesick when spending the night at the grandparents, thus entailing a Sandwich Generation granny nanny to drop everything for a peaceful time of purple teddy bears, cuddles and stories?

My grandkids love their webkinz stuffed animals - is this not a cute purple panda

Did you know that no word in the English language rhymes with orange or purple. So when you are playing a rhyming game with your grandchildren, never suggest those words, unless you want to “mess with their minds” a bit.

Did you know that if you smoke you are inhaling over 4,000 known chemicals in cigarettes – including cyanide, arsenic, and formaldehyde! If you don’t care about that for your own sake, make sure you care about it for the sake of your grandkids. Even second-hand exposure to those kinds of chemicals is dangerous – even the pretty ones that may have a touch of purple!

Time changes for the Sandwich Generation Granny Nanny dealing with the issues of caring for elderly parents means double clock changes - make sure they get theirs changed too

Did you know that in 2009, Daylight Savings Time starts March 8 and ends November 1. And in 2011, Daylight Savings Time starts March 13 and ends November 6.  WHERE does the time go! Hooray – more time for playing tag with those grandkids is right around the corner!

    I enjoyed my visit to your site, and love the crafts for grandma’s and grandkids. My grandkids live 3 hours away and so they usually come in the summer and spend a week with me and these are great little ideas for them. Thank you so much. I am new at this, so I hope you will visit me too. Have a great day!

  3. You are very welcome, Janet. And I did, indeed, enjoy your lovely site full of my favorite flowers – ROSES 🙂 Have fun this summer with those sweet grandchildren! 🙂
