Back by popular demand… 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.
