It’s Not a Competition with the “Other” Grandma*

A wonderful read about sharing, caring, loving and being…..

How do you get along with the “other” grandma? Many grandmas have confessed they feel competitive with the “other” grandma. It’s normal to feel a little rivalry for our grandchildren’s affection. Knowing it’s shared with another set of grandparents can sometimes feel threatening — especially, if the “other” grandma lives closer to the grandchildren, has more money to spend on them, and has more privileges because she’s the maternal grandma.

Masks are here to stay — at least for a long while. One of our favorite ways to wear a mask (and not lose it) is to wear a mask chain. Have you tried it? We have found two sites that make the chains… and the chains are made by KIDS. Plus, each company donates a portion of their proceeds to charity. How great is this! Take a look.
