I remember when I was little feeling envious of my friends when they would talk about going to their grandparents for dinner or for sleepovers.
Some even had grandparents who lived with them. I thought that must have been the best!
They each live no more than a 10 minute drive between us and each other. All in the same town.
We are very aware how lucky we are.
Sean and my Dad enjoy watching the English premier football league together. Those Sunday mornings when ManU play Liverpool are always fun…<sigh>
We often share Sunday dinners altogether.
We share birthday celebrations and Christmas dinners.
Eva goes for sleepovers regularly at either Sean’s parents or my mums.
We can usually drop all three of them off for a few hours on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon so we can run errands sans enfants.
There is always a grandparent available for last minute help with school drop offs or pickups or doctors appointments.
They are able to be there and cheer Cam on at the arena.
Sean and I get out for dinner dates fairly regularly. We get to go out for nights out with friends regularly.
