I Am Thankful For...Grandparents

Today's post is going to be super short. Why? Because the boys are off having fun at Pappy and Grammy's house.

And when the boys are at a grandparent's house, my house is very quiet.

And I don't have to listen to choruses of "he hit me first!" every ten minutes.

And I don't have to repeat the word "No" to the same question from one boy 78 times in one minute, while at the same time trying to answer the "Why" question from the other boy 42 times in that same minute.

And I can finish a cup of coffee while it's still hot.

And I can go out for that cup of coffee if I want to.

And.... wait, why am I still writing?

So today I am thankful for grandparents, who provide a temporary relief from the noise, the fighting, the whining and the cold coffee. Hooray for grandparents!

*In the spirit of Thanksgiving, "I Am Thankful For..." is a blog challenge I have decided to do during the month of November. Each day I will pick one thing that I am thankful for and blog about it. Obviously I am extremely thankful for the many things in my life I am blessed with, such as a wonderful family, my health and my family's health, great friends, a roof over my head, food on the table, and more. But this series is about all the other day-to-day things that I sometimes take for granted and that make life just a little bit better -- you know, the little things.
