In honor of Grandparents Day this coming Sunday, this week’s post is from the archives. Ironically, it was originally shared about a year ago and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I need it again at this time in my life and maybe the same is true for you.
Has your daughter ever said (through sighs and tears) that another girl ruined her day? If your daughter is anything like the ones I’ve worked with over the years, the reason for the ruination could be:

They are first cousins to one another and 3 months apart. It was fantastic because not…
