newspapers

The older children spend one night a week with their grandparents. Not all on the same night though. That would be overwhelming to the grandparents and reduce the special time the children spend being indulged and pampered. It’s something the children look forward to and I know they are spoiled in the best possible way during their time away from home. Yesterday, Doug bought a newspaper to see his quote from the school zoning forum. When Amy saw the paper, her entire face lit up. “I get the funnies first! Granddaddy ALWAYS gives me the funnies first.” I folded the comics section so that it faced out and handed them to Amy. She studied them for a solid 15 minutes. The oldest children get the comics delivered to their e-mail daily, but I needed to see Amy’s reaction to remember how I felt holding the “good part” of the newspaper as a child.
