Scooter likes to read the Sunday paper (comics for him) with his grandpa. It's adorable for us and a nice, quiet ritual for them. Time with grandparents seems to exist in another plane.

I love the little rituals kids create with their grandparents--I remember so many of them myself, from my own childhood.

I'm lucky to have three grandparents who are still alive and am so grateful for the time I've had with them. My own parents have this really great relationship with my kids and it makes me so happy to see it. They get so excited to see each other, it's a wonderful feeling.

You are lucky, Omaha!

I get so much enjoyment out of seeing my kids with their grandparents--I wish we all lived closer, but then I remember how a whole year would go by before I got to see my own grandparents.
