Some of the Sandwich Generation Issues

Sick grandkids are a part of the Sandwich Generation issues

Aren’t you glad germs can’t go through the internet? Because if they could, I might inadvertently give you the tummy bug I think my grandkids shared with me 🙂 . That’s one of the joys of the Sandwich Generation issues, isn’t it? Also one of our struggles in balancing the needs of the young and the elderly. Since my senior mom lives with me, we work hard to ensure that when the grandkids are sick, they stay somewhat apart. But she has as much difficulty doing that as I do. When one of those little darlings gets sick, we just have to hug them extra!

Fortunately we are both relatively healthy and manage to miss the majority of the bugs they keep trying to give away. Of course, it’s our own fault. After all, we do keep teaching them to share! Some of the good Sandwich Generation Issues

Fun Games With Grandkids

Tonight I had a blast entertaining one little one who is getting over the bug. He beat me at Gobblet at least 20 times and enjoyed it thoroughly every time. He even smiled big when I beat him two times. (Balancing winning and losing games are part of the Sandwich Generation Issues  🙂

We had such a good time and he never gets tired of playing that game with me!  It’s great! It keeps me somewhat interested, they are learning critical thinking skills, and we work on good sportsmanship all at the same time!

Lysol is a Grandparent’s Friend!

Now I’m going to follow my own advice for the Sandwich Generation issues, grab the Lysol, and spray the living room and kitchen thoroughly to help protect my aging mother! Fortunately, Lysol works well on regular tummy bugs too.

  1. I just found this video on You Tube that really shows how germs and viruses spread. It is so cool. It’s meant for kids but I even learned a lot!

  2. Hi Maggie, Thanks for the link. It was very informative about how our grandkids can “share” their germs with us so abundantly! Your site and product, Germy Wormy, looks like a great resource for helping to teach them NOT to share this particular gift with us! Thanks 🙂 🙂 🙂
